Whew! This has been a REALLY busy last couple of weeks. My husband left for his deployment today, so we've all been busy preparing for that. The great thing about this deployment is that he's only 2.5 hours away...so we'll get to visit every few weeks. Plus, we're in the same time zone, so we should be able to talk on the phone regularly. The bad thing is that, like always, we'll miss having him around for all of the day-to-day stuff. Needless to say, it was just a big tear-fest when he left this afternoon. At least we can now start counting down to when we'll see him again...hopefully sometime in late June.
Well, since my hubby had to leave today, he'll be missing my daughter's 10th birthday, which is on Wednesday. So, she's had 2 early parties...one with her friends and one at home with us. Of course, since I wanted to make all the stuff for her party, the last two weeks have been even more stressful. Hey, at least I had fun making all the stuff. :o)
Madi wanted to have a Rock n Roll themed party, so I made her some cupcake toppers and wrappers that I already had listed in my Etsy store. Then, I made some invitations and treat bags to match the theme. Here's all of her goodies:
The guitar on these invitations is from Rock Princess, and I believe the stars are from Toy Story (I think).
I used a Photoshop Elements Brush to create the star shapes on the picture and then created the inside of the invitation in Microsoft Word. I made up an extra one with fake info so I could show you here and then list it on Etsy. :o)
The black background piece is embossed with the Spots and Dots Cuttlebug folder, and the large star is embossed with Candycane Stripes. The sentiment on the front is from Pink By Design's Rock On Stamp Set. I added another stamp to the envelopes.
Here are the cupcake toppers (also from Rock Princess) and the cupcake wrappers (from Life's a Party) I made.
Here's my goofy girl with her cupcake..all in GREEN, of course! (Her favorite color.)
Okay, I had to get a smiley one, too!
And...here are the treat bags I put together for her guests.
The guitars were the little pieces left over from the cupcake wrappers (I couldn't let those cute little guys go to waste, you know!). The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
Oh, and before I forget...here is the card I made for my little rocker chick:
If it looks familiar, it's because I made a similar one a few months ago. Madison loved it so much that I decided to make one for her. I just changed out the Rock Princess girl on the front. I also added a sentiment from the Taylored Expressions You're My Hero Stamp Set. The card base is from Birthday Bash.
Whew! I hope you like all of this birthday stuff...I had a lot of fun making it! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great week, and Happy Memorial Day!
