More birthday wishes, a money bouquet and a recipe...

I have some more birthday wishes to send out - this time it's for my youngest niece for her Golden Birthday!  She turned 11 on Saturday :)  I waited until today to post so I had a couple of photos to share with you.  I just loved her birthday cake cupcakes.  How cool of an idea is that?
Did you notice the bouquet sitting next to her and her cake?  No?  Well, here's a better picture of it.
She wanted money for her birthday (I know she's saving up for a camera of some sort) but I couldn't just give her plain old ordinary cash.  She's my crafty niece, so I had to get crafty, too.  I think my little creation turned out pretty neat. 
I just accordion folded the money and held it all together with floral wire through the buttons - no adhesive whatsoever so it should be pretty easy for her to take apart when the time comes to spend the money...either that, or it's a good way to get her to save her money :)
A card you say?  Oh yeah, I totally scraplifted this one from my friend Lynn!  Thanks for the great idea, it turned out pretty cute :)
I also made these BLT roll-ups to bring along to the birthday party.  They were a fun change from the normal roll-ups that I make.  They were so easy to do, too...just my style :)
I'll even share the recipe with you:

8 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup mayo
Mix together and add:
about 1/2 to 1 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup or so of chopped tomatoes

Spread on flour tortillas (I used about 7 of them, but it all depends on how thick you spread the filling).  Top with shredded lettuce.  Roll up and slice into pieces.

See, I told you they were easy, peasy!

Happy Scrappin'
