Oh the places you'll go!

Talk about one of the best ideas for a 1st birthday party.  Not to mention one for a little boy who has seen more of the world than some people will see in their entire life!

Wyatt's mom asked if I'd be willing to make birthday cookies for her son's birthday when they were still living in Bahrain.  Yes, Bahrain.  And no that's not in Illinois.

Thankfully they were going to be home in the United States, Nebraska specifically, to celebrate his first birthday.

His mom came up with the awesome idea of "Oh the Places You'll Go" from Dr. Seuss paired with a travel theme to really commemorate her little guys first birthday.

She sent me over some ideas and a picture of the birthday invitation and away I went.

It was so. much. fun.

I started by using my tierd cake cookie cutter with the idea of turning it into stacked suitcases.

And I finally got to use my cloud cutter from Truly Mad Plastics!  Not to mention being able to use my Tru Color "sky blue" airbrush color.  It was all around a first time for everything!

I was pretty happy with how the stacked suitcases ended up. Darn cute. The details will make then even better.

I added the words onto the clouds which made them even happier little clouds. Bob Ross would smile.

See...I told you the details made them better.

Overall, this was an awesomely fun set to make.

And I'm hoping the birthday boy and all his party guests enjoyed them!

Happy First Birthday Wyatt!
