Birthday Parties

Happy Birthday, Amanda!!!!


Well, today I have some mixed baby turns 7 today! Yes, Amanda is getting a little older and this mom wishes she could stop the clock...sigh...

I have enjoyed every moment with her and I cherish the fact that I am lucky to be home with her still. I don't want to miss a single thing about her childhood. Ok... enough sappy stuff... let's embrace the moment and enjoy the day! Yeah!!!

Today, I would like to share her Birthday invites with you...



here's a look at the inside..


Lovin the bling...


You may remember this layout from a previous card I featured on my blog here. I just changed out the papers and the colors.

I love the naturals designer buttons and the In color Dahlias, so of course I had to put them together. :)

I hope your having a great day and i'll be back soon!

For today's crafty project, I was inspired by my friend and fellow demonstrator, Kristine Burns. I cased this project almost exactly beacuse I loved it so much!! I am doing my first ever birthday party tomorrow with 8 year old girls. :) It's a Canvas memo board and each girl will go home with her very own.

It has a cork board, a piece of Decor elements Chalkboard, exclusive Stampin up die cut flowers, stamping on the writing pad and my favorite part is the decor elements girl. :)


Here's a close up of the decor elements girl on a window sheet. Cut with the scallop oval die. Yes! the big shot cut through the thick window sheet like butter!! Sorry for the glare on the window sheet.. that's me taking the picture!! :)


I am very excited to do the birthday party tomorrow. Wish me luck!! LOL!! I'll be back with a birthday card tomorrow.

Have a great day and don't forget to leave me a comment to be entered for the blog candy!!
