Party Time!

Caytlynn had a few friends over for her B-Day party today and everyone had so much fun! I created a little picture holder last night and tried REALLY REALLY hard to keep it as easy and simple as possible since one is 4, 4 are 6 and one is 8. and this is what I came up with

I took a picture of each of the girls with Caytlynn as they arrived and then planned on quickly printing them off as the girls were playing. Well, my computer was so slow that it took forever! I wasn't able to print out Caytlynn's or Cassidy's pictures because of that - bummer! I really wanted to take a group shot of them all with their finished project. I did get this cute shot of them all though :) and will send it them with a big ol' THANK YOU! Since we did have only a few girls, I was able to take a pic with each girl and their present to Caytlylnn with Caytlynn so she will never forget who gave her what!

After everyone left I was able to spend time with the girls and help them finish their project. Cassidy is so funny, she put glue on the wrong side of the paper and glued the pattern side down. she also decorated both sides of the project, not thinking ahead that the picture will cover one side - lol. It still turned out fabulous! I would not expect any less than stellar from both of them in the crafting dept - hehe.
I am exhausted and need to sleep. We have a big day, er, or should I say morning.... we are going to visit Great Gammer tomorrow followed with a trip to Build-A-Bear! Followed up with a TON of laundry! Is there such thing as a laundry folder? I would love to hire someone.... Anyone interested???? PWEASE?

I just realized that it's been over a month with no new blog material. I'm pretty tired so I'll keep it short. I have a few new LOs, but can only show one for now. I just submitted one for Becky Higgin's sketch for Creating Keepsakes. Does anyone know how long I have to wait before I post it?

I did this one at my crop 2 weeks ago. Hey if you live in WI or even Northern IL, you need to come to my next crop - September 27 from 10am-10pm. I promise it will be stellar! e-mail me if you want the deets -
So here is one from the crop. I used the September Kit - Fashion Statement along with the Sept. project kit and alpha add-ons. You can see them here

Here's a few more recent ones that I haven't had a chance to post here yet. This one uses the August Kit - Cirque De Soleil

This one uses new American Crafts - yum!

And this one also uses the Cirque De Soleil Kit

I will have to share pictures of Caytlynn's first day of first grade and Cassidy's first day at pre-school! Just not tonight.

Thanks for visiting!
