Diary of a Wonderful Kid

My son decided he just wants to go to a movie for his birthday since having a party is too babish. So lucky for us the Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2 movie is coming out. I made his invitations around that theme. I used The Ettes kit "Dude" and "Back to School mini" to make the invitations.The stick figure elements were perfect for it. Then I made a little notebook out of card stock,staples and some Velcro dots.Then I printed each boys name on front so it looks like they have their own little diary. It makes the perfect little envelope for the invitation.

Birthday Surprises and New Scrapbook Adventures

Well it's my Hubbys birthday today so last night l filled his car with balloons and candy so when he went to take some of the kids to school he got a big surprise. Then yesterday I decided to make a fun banner for him also. I wanted to use some new designs from one of my favorite designers "Meredith Cardall" and got a fun surprise as she asked me to come back on her Creative Team and start making some of my hybrid stuff. I do have a lot going with substitute teaching, property managing our townhouse in Midway and just running a household with 3 kids. But I miss creating so much so I'm going to jump on the train and see if I can keep up. So I looked at a few of her kits and used Love Is In the Air at Sunshine Studio Scraps for the paper and elements and Patchwork Of My Life for the alpha. Meredith's designs are all on sale for 30% off until Friday the 18th at Sunshine Studio Scraps so go check it out.I printed out the little cards and cut out the white space on the paper to reveal the candy names of HUGS and KISSES. I used eyelets on the corners to secure them, added a paper flower and a blue jewel. Then pulled some ribbon through to tie it up.

Totally Teeanager!

This is the original and I turned it into this- below.

Well my daughter turned 13 last week. I now have a teenager in the house. Oh My!!! Because she said she didn't want a party (I think she thought she was too grown up for that) I decided to plan a SUPRISE party for her anyway. Her birthday was Wednesday and we went to dinner and had presents and all that normal stuff. I also used a freebie quick page (I think it's from Ellie Lash-not sure) to make a scrapbook page she could put on her wall. So when Friday rolled around I don't think she had any clue. Matt took her to the video store to pick a video and snacks for the night and when she came back. SURPRISE! They had fun with the surprise and Sydney was a little embarassed but liked it too. Then we went bowling and ate pizza. Then we came home and they ate more snacks and did a little karoke and some Just Dance on the Wii. Then up to her room for private girl stuff (that means talking, lots of talking) So heres's some pics. Hopefully she had a memorable 13th birthday.
The loot
family pie and ice cream
Goodie boxes for all the guests

Skittles make great props. They match the colors too.
The Gangs all here.
Who could ask for more than that.
