Celebrate with Stars!

Today's Ways to Use it Challenge on Split Coast was to use stars!   So  - I am having a cookout on Memorial Day and wanted to make something to use as a festive decoration on the table.

I also just got this wonderful pinwheel die (you can see the tutorial and order them here)  so I decided today was the day to make some!   So I made a pinwheel on a stick with some stars that I can use to decorate - maybe tape them to bowls or stick them in brownies on a tray......

Notice my star shaped brownie?!?! Cool huh??! I have one of those rubber (silicone) star shaped muffin trays and it's the first time I used that too  - they came out great!
The banner  is from Bitty Banners and the sentiment is from Free Spirit Sentiments - both are from Waltzingmouse.

Happy Memorial Day to all those living in the US - I'm so looking forward to a 3 day weekend! (AND my niece is in the hospital as we speak - having her baby boy! what more could you ask for??!)  I am truly blessed.

Oh - and just a little heads up about what's coming up here on my blog for the next several days- 

 ON  5/28 and 5/30  I'll be posting some sweet peaks of new Sweet 'N Sassy stamps being released on 6/1


AND - You may recall that Waltzingmouse releases new stamps every other month and on the alternate month the Design Team  reviews the last release with a SOAP - Stamp of Approval Parade
SO on June 1st through June 4th the DT will be highlighting the May release sets as well as spotlighting one of the older sets.

Hope you can drop by!!

Fabulous idea Julia!! If I were having company I would make some of these! But my weekend is going to be a quiet one, so I guess I could clean the house instead, lol!
