Sincere apologies for my lack of blog entries lately. As always, it can be tricky balancing blogging with living life. April is a busy time in our household with lots of birthdays including our twins who turned 9 years old on Sunday 28th April. They each had a party with their friends and also a family BBQ. As their birthday fell in the WA school holidays they got to celebrate with friends a little early. Here are some snapshots of Adam’s Angry Birds/ Gamer Birthday party.
Firstly the invitation. I created Adam’s invitation using MY DIGITAL STUDIO which is a Stampin’ Up! product for creating digital projects.
If you would like to try out this product- You can download a free trial from my online store. Just click on the button that says ‘shop now’. The full version is only $24.95 and includes lots of great content. Try it out and let me know what you think!
Anyway- back to the birthday party. I didn’t use a lot of Stampin’ Up! products for Adam’s decorations but I can assure you that my Stampin’ Up! PAPER SNIPS got a good workout (It is great that my kids are now at an age where they are lots of help with the party preparations! Thanks for your help with all of the cutting!)
OPENING THE GIFTS….with a little bit of ‘assistance’. Thanks so much to the party guests for all of the lovely gifts for Adam!
The entertainment included an ‘off screen Angry Birds Game”- complete with a slingshot. Erin blew up and tied lots of green balloons and Jared drew bad piggies faces faces on them
We also had a game where we popped “Goomba” balloons”, a Mario pinata and “Pin the moustache on Mario” Game
TIME to “PIG OUT!”
(The labels for the food items were cut out using my Bigshot using the Petal cone die and Apothecary Accents Framelits)
TIME FOR CAKE
and finally……the PARTY FAVOURS
Call me crazy but I love all of the birthday party preparation. I was even crazy enough to hold a party for Erin the following day. Stay tuned for pictures!
