Lady Bug Themed Birthday...

Cookies and Banner and little cupcake sticks were all made handmade by Sharon. Cupcakes were ordered in to make my (Rachael) life a lot easier. I added assorted treats and sweets and let me tell you, it was a parents nightmare, but a kids DREAM! It was so great to see the faces on the little ones light up with the " Oooooooooooh My Gosh" look on their face. I think the parents had about the same reaction, but maybe in a less fantasising way..ha ha Sorry parents. It's just once a year I swear!
We played a fun pin the spots on the lady bug game. We had a few winners but gave prizes to everyone. We also played Egg relays which in that game there was a tie and EVERYBODY won! :)
The party was great despite the rain. Doodler girl was the happiest birthday girl in town!
I made these fun little invites for my daughters birthday. I was able to create a one page design for the main background on my handy dandy print shop software to save me time and money and then with my cricut I made shapes to make the lady bug embellishment. I used a black gel pen to make the dotted lines behind the lady bug and two small, black stick on circles for the antennas. I was perplexed as to what I should use for the lady bugs spots and I discovered that 3D paint works wonderfully not only on fabric, but paper too! I then finished it off with one red ribbon and tied in the "Stay put bow" style. Sharon (my mom) is working on a very lovely lady bug banner which I will include in this post when I get it in the mail. I can't wait to see it live. It looked super cute over Skype. Sharon is also going to be making little lady bug sugar cookies and cupcake embellishments. I will add all her birthday photos so you can see what we can do for you and your child on their next birthday!

Summer Birthday Party Theme

I got into making some invites and treat baskets to go along with the party. This special little girl had a pool party and wanted something fun and summer like. When she saw the total package, she was so happy and thankful! Made my day to see her so happy.

These treat bags will come empty so that you can fill them with what ever you would like. This one happens to be filled with cute little note pads, pencil and an "treat" styled eraser (example: ice cream treat)

A wondeful woman called today to let us know that we've been making such lovely cards. She let us know that we were out of cards at one of our locations and requested that we please make some more blank cards by Saturday..haha. She was very kind and sweet and here is what I came up with. I hope she likes!
