We're having a party of inspiration this week at The Cutting Cafe!! I love inspiration time!! You can find such amazing and creative inspiration at The Cutting Cafe's blog this week. So make sure you go and check out all the lovely work from all of our Design Team! While you're there remember to stop back by on Thursday and leave a comment and you may be a lucky winner of 3 sets of your choice from The Cutting Cafe store!!
This week's inspiration, Regina asked us to use the PARTY HATs files! You have got to check these out!! They would work perfect for any celebration! I chose to work with the Fun with Party Hats Printable Stamp Set! I had such a great time working with this file. Maybe because I was making it for my youngest baby, who turned 18 on Feb 20th..or maybe because Regina's files are always fun to use and work with. I'm thinking it's both reasons!! 

For my project, I started off with one of the Party Hats, taking it into my Paintshop Pro and adding the Miami Dolphins Logo to it. I erased the bottom portion of my logo so it looked as if the turquoise part was water and it was jumping from the water. I cut out another dolphin to layer the logo, and the same with the tassel part at the top, adding some feathers to it. But then I thought...February...Mardi Gras!!...soooooo
I turned it into a Mardi Gras party hat!!! I thought it turned out really cute and I think my son will love it. If for nothing else, to hang on his wall with the rest of his Miami Dolphins items! 
Thanks for looking and hope you were inspired in some small way to make your own party hats!!
