It is my youngest daughter, Amy’s, birthday tomorrow..she will be 8 yrs old….(hard to imagine!)
The downside of having a daughter who hangs out with me while I am making cards is…she is hard to ‘wow’ LOL! She tells me if my work is good, bad, or ugly. She said to me the other day…”Mom, I can’t wait till I see my birthday card that you are going to make me!”…Well Amy, way to lay on the stress….! I decided that I had to go all out.
On my shopping spree to Archiver’s the other day I picked up this mini album in the shape of a castle. Don’t ask me who made it….I have been working on it for 2 weeks and have thrown all the packaging away! The idea is that I will put pics of her party on Saturday in it. She is my little princess, my little Barbie lover. Her room is all pink and satin and lace. My eldest daughter is the dragon lover who has a room full of fearsome beasts and tons of teeth. Sooo I let loose and went overboard with pink and sparkles :-)
There is an assortment of ribbon which I couldn’t begin to list. The papers are CTMH’s Daydream papers and Bazzil Bling textured CS. There are flowers and bling from Michael’s and CTMH. Silver and Crystal stickles. Stickers from Michaels. Sakura glitter gel pens and the adorable Princess Anya to stand by the door.
I am hoping she will be happy with it and that she is Wowed LOL. It took me FOREVER to sand all those little edges and scallops Errgghh. My main worry is how will I top this next year.
What does she want for birthday food???? She wants to make homemade mac and cheese with mommy…go figure. We already made a cake. Given the choice of store bought and making their own cake..my kids ALWAYS choose ‘make my own’. Much cheaper for mom! We made strawberry cake with strawberry frosting and blue sprinkles…her choice.
I did find out who did the cool thing with the covered brads as snowman earmuffs. It is Bren Yule a very talented CTMH consultant.
I will be busy tomorrow so I will not have time to post. So have a wonderful Wednesday and Thursday.
PS sorry for all the pics :-)
