Last minute :)

Hi everyone!!

I hope you all had a very happy World Card Making Day!! :)

We were busy with Brookie's birthday party... so no card making yesterday for me... but I have been following Pink Paislee's card challenges on their blog all week, and I had a little time to spare this morning to join in two of their challenges!! :)

First one I did was a masculine card :) I used their Nantucket collection, and I had just finished using all the hexagon chipboard stickers from the set ... and so I used the packaging as a mask on my card :)



The next challenge of theirs that I was able to do was create a set of mini cards!! Again using their Nantucket collection ... I made these three little cards (they measure 3x3 and 2x3) :)

 






And as I mentioned above ...
Saturday was Brookie's birthday party!! :) We had 10 kids here and we made 3 crafts, had pizza, homemade chocolate chip cookies and my friend Kayla made Brookie's Barbie birthday cake!!! The kids seemed to have lots of fun!!! Here are a few of the pics from the party!! :)


We decorated pumpkins!! :) I found really cute kid aprons at the dollar store, so we got one for each kid so we wouldn't have any messy clothes! LOL! :) 




Leeanne and her kids were there!!! It was so awesome to meet her kids!!! They are just so WONDERFUL!! :)









 



A couple of months ago, Cindy posted the CUTEST paper bag owls on her blog and I KNEW I wanted to have them made at the birthday party!! :)


Here is Brookie's Pumpkin and her owl :)

 




 




We had pizza :)



We made bead necklaces!!! :)








Here is the Barbie cake my friend Kayla made for Brookie :)



Brookie and her BFF Aerin!! :)
