Thank You card set

I made a set of 20 Thank You card for a co-worker.  The organization's colors are cream and maroon.  I used My Pink Stamper's Family and Friends stamp set.  I then embossed the maroon layer with my cuttlebug.  Add some black ribbon for another color and ta-da! 

 I haven't heard from her, but I hope she likes them!

Personal Birthday Post

As I mentioned below, today is my son's 4th birthday.  It amazes me that it has been that long since we were blessed with his birth.  My husband and I struggled for a few years to even be able to carry a pregnancy to term.  After several heartaches and tears, our beautiful son arrived!

For his 4th birthday party we had a Monster Jam party! (same as his 3rd) My son LOVES Monster Jam.  I've lost count of how many trucks he owns, I know it is in the hundreds!  I have a wonderful baker who did a donut competition monster truck cake this year along with a dozen cupcakes.  She's amazing!

Now here is the Birthday Boy with one of his BIG presents!  His very own helmet and goggles!  He was so excited!

This goes along with his present he received later.  His very own 4-wheeler.  My family is a racing family so my son had no choice but to be ALL boy and get roped into the racing world!

Thanks for letting a very proud mommy share her son's BIG Birthday! =)  Now, I'll return to crafting!


Teachers' Happy Birthday Treat Boxes

For my son's birthday party at school, I send LOTS of treat bags.  Not only do I do bags for the 50 + kiddos, I also make each one of his teachers a treat bag/box of their own!  I usually stuff chocolate in their bags/boxes since every teacher needs a dose of chocolate a day! =)

I used a wedding treat box I found on clearance at Wal-Mart. =)  I then added some Happy Birthday and blue ribbon from Hobby Lobby.  I think they will love it, especially when they open it to all the chocolate inside! =) Simply and sweet.


Monster Truck Treat Bags

Today my little boy turns 4! =(  Where does the time go??  For his BIG birthday party this weekend, I made each child a "MONSTER" style treat bag.  My son's favorite colors are yellow, red, and blue.  I used yellow and red colored bags and cut the monster trucks in purple and green - the same colors of this favorite truck.  Then we STUFFED them!  The kiddos loved them!

I cut the trucks at 3" from the Boys Will Be Boys cartridge (one of my favorites).  I ran the truck bodies through the cuttlebug to add some distress to them.  Then we used silver stickles to add some bling. =)

Now on to Easter projects!

"Date Night" Scrapbook Page

My dear hubby had pneumonia this year during Valentine's Day so he wasn't able to do anything special for me.  We normally do not do much, if anything, for Valentine's day.  This year he wanted to something special for his "nurse" (me) who took care of him during his illness. So sweet!

So, we had a "Date Night" all to ourselves!!  Of course, I had my camera with me!

I used the Sweethearts cartridge for the couple.  I'm not sure what I used the title.  I'll have to get back to you on that one.  I thought it turned out super cute! =)
