AJ's birthday & sleepover

The first one is CTMH butterfly kiss stamp set, the butterfly is sprinkled w/glitter. With acrylics it is so nice to bend the sayings as we did with the Happy Springtime stamp, stamped random flowers for the background both are from the CTMH word puzzle sets, used colonial white cardstock. Added a bow & accent strip of B & T paper and it's done.
The second card was cut using the colozzel circle cutter but folding at one edge for the opening.
Cut the papergarden B&T paper to size on half, used another strip of solid cardstock, rip the edge to show the white core and then used the brown distressing ink to distress. Stamped the saying which is from the celebrate life stamp set & layered it on the squares and used the small distressing brown ink pad to distress the top and edges of the top layers. The flowers/leaves were cut out and then crumpled and layered, a big brad was attached and all were glued to the top. I love the paper garden paper packet I think it is a favorite of mine from the 2008 spring catalog.

I enjoy using smilebox to share photos of special occasions. See the one just created for Aj's birthday. It was a busy weekend. On Saturday I went to our unit meeting for CTMH. Lots of great ideas were shared & we did some fun projects. See the cards we made above. While I was at the meeting Chad took AJ and his cousins to the park by our house to play ice hockey. They burned off lots of energy& had a blast. Then we took all the kids to the YMCA to swim, they love the waterslide!. Then to supper at Jakes Pizza not a crumb was left... they were hungry after a busy day. Once we got home it was movie time & they all relaxed to watch Shrek 2. The next morning Chad made pancakes and I prepared lunch for the party on Sunday afternoon. Sunday was Chase's birthday he turned 9 so he had his party at the bowling alley in RWF and everyone signed his "birthday pin" a gift given from the bowling alley. AJ did good he bowled an 80- Next we went to grandma & grandpa's to watch Chase & AJ open their presents, then it was time to eat & enjoy the cupcakes with DQ ice cream cake. It was a busy yet fun filled weekend and it wrapped up week filled with birthday celebrations. Whew it will be nice to quiet things down a bit after that!!!
