Being parents with jobs in the creative field lends us to go all out for our daughters birthday parties. My wife, a graphic designer (http://www.katiepalamaro.com/) looks forward to it as a child does Christmas and counts down the days from the previous birthday. The idea is I would take care of the illustrations and my wife would design and lay it out. Every year also carries a theme and with that, after the character design are finished I would create a cake topper. Here is what we came up with for birthday Numero Uno!!!!
