You're Invited!


Hello!  I thought it would be fun to have a little invitation made up for the next time my daughter wants a friend to spend the night:)  I used this super adorable and perfect image for this called Lili's Slumber Party by Inky Impressions.  Isn't she a doll!?  I really wanted to use some soft girly colors, so I pulled out my October Afternoon Fly A Kite dp for my color inspiration.  The sentiment comes from the PTI set Round & Round.  Here is a close up of sweet Lili:



My daughter turned 6 last week, and we had her birthday party on Saturday.  This year we had it at a park and the day couldn't have been more perfect!  She fell in love with The Dog party supplies:



So for her party favors, each child got a Webkinz dog.  I found a variety of these on Ebay for a GREAT price!!!  I put them in a gift bag that I found at Target and attached a tag that I made:




I honestly have no idea who makes this stamp, but it's one I've had for about 12 years.  I bought it when I was into scrapbooking and I wanted to make a scrapbook page for my little Maltese:)  Here is a picture (althought it's not very good!) of my daughter about to blow out her candles. 



Notice the little cupcake stand that her cupcake is on?  I made that using the super fun Mini Cake Stand Template from Perfect Presentation found HERE!  Avery loved it!  The larger cupcake stand I found at Joanns.  You can decorate the way you want it.  I thought that was kind of fun, but it's definitely not the sturdiest thing around!

Well that's it for me today.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous hump day!

I've never heard of this theme, but it makes me giggle...those lil' doggie plates and cut outs are so cute. That little cupcake stand - and the bigger one with the little dog paws are really fun too. My kids are big in to Webkinz too.
