Life's a Party Episode #2

I have to be honest, this cartridge was in and out of my shopping cart when I was ordering it. Now that I'm playing with it, I'm loving it :)

Here's #2 in the series...



and of course here's a picture...

Ethan really wants you all to decide cap or no cap for the skull and cross bones?

  1. I too like the red cap. Have a great day.

  2. How about cap for all the boys and if there are any girls a bow! Prefer a dressed skull anytime.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Wow they both look so good, now I know why he wants us to decide. I like the red cap, makes it pop a little more. Then you will have another color to incorporate in your decorations.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I love that Ethan asked for help with this decision! I would definitely go with the red cap. This is such a great cartridge and I'm so glad you're showcasing it and giving me more ideas and inspiration to use it. Thanks!

  5. Definitely a cap!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I love them both!! Hmmm...I would say if you can only pick one...go with the cap!

    ReplyDelete
  7. The cap adds a nice punch of color...but more important...it makes the skull look like a pirate!! Use the cap!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. My vote is for the cap. Adds more dimension...cute

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'd go with the cap as well. but I do love the idea of a red bow for girls (if there are any at the party).

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think I like the cap...but you know the boy girl idea is a good one.

    ReplyDelete
  11. The cap says pirate - no cap says motorcycle!

  13. Hi again! Oops! Typing to fast and psy should not have came up at the end. Thanks again for all your hard work.

  14. I like them both. Make half with and half without.
    I am sure whichever one you choose will look great.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I like both of them but for a pirate theme maybe the cap would be better. Or do half and half.
    Thanks for doing this cartridge.

  23. Oh, Ethan, you gotta have the cap:)

    You are such an enabler, Christina. Now, you have me wanting this cartridge...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Definitely the cap needs to stay! How great did these turn out!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. The red cap definitely makes it look like a "pirate" and not Halloween!
    Really cute!

    ReplyDelete
  26. DEFINITELY the cap! You can even change the color of it...cut it from patterned paper like cool Halloween paper and stuff...emboss polka dots on it and stuff to make it cooler...but definitely the cap! I wish I could come to the party...it is looking like it will be loads of fun! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  27. Adorable goody bag! I say keep the cap Ethan. It definitely looks more like a pirate.

    Christina, I did a pirate's birthday party for my son when he was younger and I made a treasure chest cake. It was SO easy and it would coordinate with Ethan's invitations. If you're interested Christina, I could dig up some pictures and send to you!

    Thanks for sharing your project and videos. Jude jpretli at gmail dot com judestersworld.blogspot.com

  28. Thanks Christina for making me want to buy yet another cartridge. I too like the one with the cap on it. Whenever my boys play pirate the first thing they do is put on a cap like that.

  33. I can see Ethan's dilemma. The color on the cap is great, but I really love the crack in the skull. So I vote for NO cap.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I agree with what liz said...cap for the guys and a bow if you have girls coming too!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Definitely keep the hat...very cute, and thanks for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  39. I say go with the cap... gives character to the pirate

    ReplyDelete
  40. Now I want this cartridge too!

    I definitely think WITH the cap. It looks more piratey. Without it makes it look more for Halloween.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I like the cap. It completes the look. Thanks for sharing this series. I look forward to seeing what else you create with this cartridge. I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of this cartridge.

    ReplyDelete

  47. I love the red cap, not only does it make it pop with color, but it really shows the pirate theme.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Gotta say YES TO THE CAP. It's a little bit more work but worth it. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Ethan!!!
    Christina- Thanks again for the inspiration. My mind is twirling for goody bags for my daughters roller skating party in May.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Looks like an overwhelming response to go with the red cap!! And I agree, the red cap really makes it stand out!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I think the skull with the hat is a keeper. Kelly

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  63. I like the red cap but I also agree with Liz and think a bow would be great for the girls.

    ReplyDelete
  64. i like the colorful cap!

    ReplyDelete
  65. With the cap! So cute, great job picking out what he wanted his theme to be for his party!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I'd make some with the cap and some without. The children could pick which one they got or you could just give them whatever. I think it would be great to have them both ways. Either way is cute.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Definitely with the cap! It looks more pirate-y!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. My vote is with the cap, but I like the comment of the person above me that said make some with and without. Very cool treat box!

  71. Love the backpack. I would choose the skull with the kerchief, adds a nice touch especially with the pirate theme. Thanks for sharing with us.

  72. Ethan - I say use the red cap - it adds some "meanness" to your backpack! Have fun buddy!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I say keeo the cap!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I vote for the kerchief because of the added color. It also speaks "pirate". Thanks for sharing. I love these projects that you're making from this cartridge. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Ok...I Like them both.... can't you do half and half? Hummmm Thanks for the video Christina! :o)

    ReplyDelete
  76. I have a problem. I like both of them for different reasons. I like it without the cap because of the crack in the skull and I really like the red to give it more life with the cap. I guess I would say with the red cap. Hope this is his best birthday ever.

    ReplyDelete
  77. OK, I'm going against the crowd here. I like it without the bandana. I think that the crack in the skull looks wicked. Looks like a fun party already!

    ReplyDelete
  78. My vote is for the that. Love it. So much fun. I really like both but the hat for the party for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I like the cap!! Hope Ethan has a wonderful birthday!

  87. I love the pop of the color red on the cap. And the black shadow of the cap tails needs to be cut off if you go with no cap.

  88. I love it with the cap; but then you can't see the crack in the skull! I think the boys would love it either way!

  90. I vote for cap adds that little something, something. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  91. It's a toss up which one is better but I think the red bandanna wins because it catches your eye a little better. Great project. Sounds like a fun party.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Hi Ethan, Have a great party.
    It's a really cute treat bag, I like the red cap the best.

    ReplyDelete

  94. I just got this cart., it's wonderful. It's like everything you need to have a party is on it. Even the after w/ the scrapbook pages. Loving your projects. THANKS for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  95. The red cap just adds something. Hope that is the one Ethan likes

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  97. Great project. I like the skull with the hat!! Have a great party!!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Super cap I like the one with the cap!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Red Cap.
    Without the cap looks too plain!

    ReplyDelete
  100. I think Ethan should go with the cap!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Wow super cute. I like the one with the cap. Makes it pop a bit.

    ReplyDelete

    I like the cap but think that it needs some inking or other detail. Thanks for another awesome video!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I agree with the other 125 comments, go with the cap Ethan and have a fantastic birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Love the cap gives it a pop of color.

    ReplyDelete
  105. How adorable....Go with the cap....it goes with the theme....

    ReplyDelete
  106. Very cute! I like them both, but if I had to pick, I would choose the one with the cap!
    happy Birthday Ethan!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I vote for 1/2 with a cap and 1/2 without. The crack in the skull if cool but the cap is pretty neat too. I suggest you distress the red cap with some of the distress black soot as well.

    ReplyDelete
  108. The cap really sets him off. Love your treat holders.

  109. I noticed you used black embossing powder w/clear pigment, do u like it better than using black pigment with clear powder? I can never get all the excess black powder to tap off :-/

    ReplyDelete
  110. Oh wow - both are cute, but I think I like the red cap. It just adds to the design. great job!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  111. The cap looks piratey. The bare skull looks poisonish. Go for the cap (from a mom with three little boys who have a pirate decorated bedroom). :)

    ReplyDelete
  112. Cap that skull, Ethan! The red gives it that extra color. Thanks for asking for our opinions! And thank you Christina, for showcasing this cartridge! I have Life's A Party so you are encouraging me to get some use out of it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  113. How adorable! Cap for boys and a bow if there are girls? I like the color pop!!

    ReplyDelete
  114. I love this series!!!
    Ethan: I think both are really cute. The crack in the skull is cute... The red scarf is cute too....
    How about 1/2 and 1/2 (your mom probably isn't going to like that answer)?

    Well, if I had to choose 1 (and they're both great), I'd pick the crack in the skull.

    Have a great birthday! You're super lucky to have such a great mom!

    ReplyDelete
  115. luv it with the cap..and I'm really liking that cart too!!!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Tell him to do it with the cap!!! Love the cap! that pop of color is great and it looks more fit for a pirate themed party. Without the cap he looks more Halloweenish. Love the video!!!

    ReplyDelete
  117. I gotta say the hat, although it has a name for it but for the life of me I can't remember what it is. Your projects for Ethan's party is going to be a huge hit. Love the crossbone skull and the treasure chest was just to awesome. I would love to get this cartridge, must be time for saving again.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Like it both ways - give them a choice! We did a baby shower once in pirate theme - added bows for the girls! Put some gold coins in with their treasures!!!
    Have fun, Ethan!!

  125. If you are going to use the cap, then the skull needs an eyepatch to go with it! Both are adorable.

  132. Hi Ethan, i like the one with the cap, hope you have a great birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  133. This is definitely a cartridge I am going to have to get. My little boy loves pirates and this would be perfect. I really like the cap. I think it finishes the theme out perfectly!

    ReplyDelete
  134. I like the one with the cap. :)

    ReplyDelete
  135. Great party decorations you're making. I am for the cap staying on. Without the cap, it looks more like a Halloween skull instead of a pirate. Have a wonderful party Ethan!

    ReplyDelete
  140. I vote for the cap. I'm not sure I like the crack in the skull.

    ReplyDelete
  141. These are both just cute as they can be but I do believe the red cap gives it just that bit of wow that they need.

    ReplyDelete
  142. I like the cap on, makes it more pirate like.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Very cool! I love the cap on. I really love the bag. I don't have the this cartridge. Is there a bag like this on any other cartridge?

    ReplyDelete
  144. Loving this cartridge and the red cap. Sandra Joy

    ReplyDelete
  145. I say both I like the variation but if you only wanted one I will go opposite of the majority and say the no cap has more character because of that cool crack. :)~
