Blog news and a change to the "It's a Celebration" link party

I have loved getting to see such wonderful parties and ideas each month at my "It's a Celebration" link party. You guys are amazing! But I have finally come to the conclusion that I need to simplify life a bit. With another baby on the way (#5) and wanting to be spend the energy I have on making memories with my family, it's been a challenge to keep up with this little blog lately. So I have decided to cancel the link party, at least for the time being. Again, I have been so truly inspired by so many of you. Thank you for participating and sharing your incredible talents!
As far as the blog goes, I will still post but I am going to stop feeling guilty about the frequency of the posts. I have a number of parties, cakes and ideas to share and I hope to get around to them soon. I also hope if you have enjoyed my blog in the past that you'll stick around and check out any future content, it may not be frequent but it will be FUN!

Now it's time to feature some fantastic ideas that were shared at the link party in March!

The Creative Vault made these adorable Shaun the Sheep cupcakes for her daughters birthday party. I bet she was one happy girl! She makes it looks so simple, check out her tutorial here.

Confessions of a Project-a-holic shared this crazy cute Zebra and Pink Baby Shower. (I wouldn't mind if someone threw me this shower, just sayin.) She made this cute diaper cake and the amazing real cake. I am loving the pink and zebra baby clothes hung as decorations. Great party, I love how you really carried the theme all the way through the party!

The Sweet Swiper is super talented when it comes to desserts and I love this Rainbow Oreo Pop. Rainbows are so popular right now, not just for St. Paddy's but for birthday parties too.
