It's March...

It's March, and I just realized that I never wrote the Birthday Post for my girls here on the blog.  I think it's because I still haven't finished with most of the photos, but today I'm posting what I have, because it's March.  Their birthdays were in December....Uuuhhh...Yeah, I'm behind a little bit!  Better late than never, right?

My daughters were born just one day apart, on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day - fourteen years separates them, though (so, NO, they're not twins.  It always happens that I tell people they were born a day apart, and then their next question is, "Are they twins?").  Not only do they share birthdays, they share their days with basically the biggest holiday of the year.  So we always try to celebrate with a little something extra for them to make it special.

Here are the cutest cupcake toppers we found for my two girls...Little Zebras!  

We planned on having cupcakes, so these cake toppers were custom made in a smaller size for our cupcakes. 

Both the front and back of these lil cuties have  incredible detail.
Super cute, don't you think?
 
Handmade by the lovely Trina from Trina's Clay Creations, who did an excellent job!

One zebra has a red bow and balloon (for my older daughter), who turned 16.  

The other has a pink bow and balloon (for Baby Girl), who turned two years old.  So cute, right?

The cupcakes were red velvet cake, with white frosting and red sprinkles...

...In zebra print cupcake liners.  

We also put them in clear cupcake boxes, and I love how it all turned out!   What do you think?

Here are some more adorable creations from Trina's Clay Creations:

 I love this engagement bear one!  Isn't it the perfect keepsake?

 And this bunny is perfect for Easter, complete with a little egg!

Take a peek at Trina's shop and see her adorable cake toppers and more!  She also has a blog that you can check out to view her latest projects and special orders.  She does an amazing job with custom orders.  I first discovered her shop through her blog when I saw her way-too-cute wedding cake toppers.  I just LOVE how the zebras turned out for my girls.  Trina helped make their birthdays extra special.  And now they both have matching little zebras to keep for years to come.  =0)

Happy Thursday, and thanks for visiting!
