Angry Birds Pinata, Cake and Card

Well the party has past and it was a blast... lol... Lots of fun with family and friends. My son is 9 today... can't believe it.  I was not able to find any Angry Birds party items so I had to create my own. As my previous post shows, I made his invitations.  I then had to figure out how to get a cake and piñata for him. The piñata was time consuming but easy to do.  We went to a piñata store looking for the bird with out any luck. We did find a strawberry that Bryan thought looked like the red bird shape so we bought it.  I removed all the yellow circles and leaves from the piñata and covered any traces with matching red tissue paper. I then cut out the face using my cricut and the previous cuts from the invite. Here are some before and after pics.

Once the Pinata was done, we had to figure out the cake. I have the Cricut Cake machine so this came easier to me.  I ordered a pre-iced cake from Vons. They made a sky and grass background along with the Happy Birthday message. All I had to do then was color some gumpaste and use the same cuts I had on the invite. Super easy and fast. The messiest part was coloring black gumpaste.... yuk.  Here is the cake. 

Last is our Birthday card for Bryan. I know he loves the bomb bird so I was inspired by the scene on one of my other son's shirts.  I cut the bombs from Indie Art cricut cart. I had cut the beak... that was hard for me.  The eyes are from layer pieces from 3 birds on parade Cricut cart. The background was created using Coredinations paper and scoring lines and squares for buildings then sanded.  Inside is stamps from Recollections and Pink by Design.

This is the shirt that inspired me.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours
would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% sure.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly
appreciated. Many thanks
