I have no idea where the time has gone but I already have an 8 year old at home! This week was Abby's birthday and we celebrated with 12 of her awesome friends at the bowling alley.
She had a great time and got lots of new goodies to play with.
I like to do other things besides making cards so I thought I'd show you some things I made for Abby's party. First up is a cake I made...now I'm not an expert by any means but I have to say I do a pretty good job. I mean I only make one a year - for Abby usually.
Next we made treat bags for the guests. I wanted to make bags that represented bowling bags...couldn't really find what I wanted but decided these would work.
I used my Cricut for almost everything. The gift boxes and hearts are made using the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More Cartridge. I used Doodlebug Type for the initials and bowling balls. I just cut circles and then punched holes in them.
On the back we printed a little thank you and then Abby signed them all. Abby really liked everything and she kept telling me thank you. My heart really swelled when I heard her telling her friends how her mommy made them. It makes it all worth it - these are the things I hope Abby remembers. Plus the extra time I got to spend with her was an added bonus. She seems to be wanting to spend a lot of her free time with friends so any time I can get with her I try and take!
