More birthday fun! – Miriam Thomas

More birthday fun!

| Posted in Boxes, bags, hostess gifts, etc

Well it has been some time since I’ve shared some ‘creations’ on my blog.  It doesn’t mean I haven’t been creating- that’s always important…… but it is about finding ‘balance’- isn’t it!?   I won’t start listing all the excuses as to why you haven’t seen much on my blog- it’s called ‘life’ We all have busy ones and I’m sure you can relate. But……today I have some stuff to share and I know I have more snapshots of some projects I’ve made recently so please keep an eye on my blog.

Last month we celebrated the birthdays of three of my four kids.  With so much on we struggled to find the time to have a party.  Don’t get me wrong I love planning parties for the kids but there just seemed to be so much happening at the time that we couldn’t decide on a date and venue.      I was quietly relieved that the kids all agreed that they would just like to have a few friends come out for dinner and have a “sleepover”.  Some people thought I was crazy to have so many kids overnight but fortunately we have the space in our home and honestly ALL the kids were SO well behaved.

So bearing in mind I was flat out at the time- Here are the invites that I prepared for each of the kids.  Don’t you love how the gorgeous paper from “Stampin’ Up!” does all the hard work for you?  Some patterned paper and a shape cut out using the bigshot and the framelits die and Voila- quick and easy invites!

I had grand plans for fun lolly bags- but ‘time’ wasn’t my friend! I ended up giving some guidance to the kids and then ended up ‘handing the reins’ over to the kids and this is what they arranged for their friends to take home!
