It's Blog Party time over at Waltzingmouse today and this month it's a colour challenge:
I think they are very masculine colours so I thought I'd use the challenge to get organised for my youngest son's birthday next week - he'll be turning the grand old age of 4! First I did some invitations:
I kept them very simple as I had to make a few of them. I used the Frame It set with some strips of Kaisercraft paper and added a bit of Kindyglitz to the icing to make it sparkle. The cards and envelopes were $2.00 from K-mart. Bargain!
Then I decided to make some toppers for the mini cupcakes I'm going to make:
This time I used the teeny tiny cupcake from the set, matted it against a Nestie scalloped circle of patterned paper and stuck it on to a cocktail stick. (The paper looked dark purple in the shop but it looks a bit more like navy here!)
Lastly I made some goody bags:
Again, I kept it simple as I had to make quite a few. This time I used Seasons of Love and put the larger cupcake in the centre instead of a sentiment. I also used Very Vintage Labels to make the name label. The clear bags are actually card bags and I just used the Nestie Labels 1 die to make the Kraft seal.
Phew. I have to say it's a nice feeling to be organised. It's also good to feel that I've made an effort for once...I have to admit I'm a little bit lazy when it come to kids parties.....
Looking forward to seeing what everyone has come up with. Thanks for stopping by and thanks so much for any comments...they always make me smile!
