Scrapbooking and other creative projects I'd like to share with my friends and family as well as bits and pieces of what goes on in our everyday lives.

Last Minute Birthday Invites
It was Felicity's Belated Birthday Party this weekend and only a couple of days before I decided to make her some party invitations using the leftover scraps of black from a project I'm currently working on and her favorite colour purple of course. I used the Wild Card Cricut cart and Zoo Balloo to cut the title and all the spiders, bats, and headstones as well as the grass edging (on the cupcakes below). A white gel pen was used for the wobbly webs.
The inside of the invitation was made in Adobe Photoshop Elements using an unkown free stamp for the background. I added a little purple bat which had a little Ranger stickles glitter on it.
I spotted this tutorial over at the Cosmo Cricket blog and decided to whip up these little goodie bags. The little bat is a rubber stamp from Stampin Up as is the Orange Grosgrain Ribbon
We decked the house out for Halloween as that was what she wanted for this years party theme. Her girlfriends thought it was awsome! They met at the pool for a swim and then came back here for cake, games, and opening gifts.
The house felt rather crowded with 12 kids (including my own) and we enjoyed the peace and quiet when the last went home. Uncle Dave and Rachelle showed up for a late dinner from there trip accross Canada to make a perfect birthday ending.
