Buggin' Out!

I told you all how behind I was in my blog post and just to prove it here is a post about my goddaughter McKenzie's 2nd Birthday Party. Since her birthday was on Valentine's day, we decided to go with a love bug/lady bug theme... She doesn't look really happy in this photo because I caught her a little off guard... However, I love the serious look!

Now this one is more McKenzie... in full effect... See what I mean? ANTM I think we have a winner... LOL!
If I had been going in sequential order; I would have put these photos first... but at any rate here are the invitations created by yours truly.... Are they just too cute?

I just love these... Take note of the love bug on the return address area and the {love stamp}....

And what about a close up of the cake..... just darling...

And last but not least, a group shot of the birthday party gang! We had a blast!

This year I have hosted several "milestone" birthday parties... Stay tuned for more...
Up next.... a {Foxy and Forty Birthday Bash}!

A Sweet Shower for a Sweet Baby Girl

Somehow, someway I became the official event planner for my old job =~)! Don't get me wrong... I enjoyed every moment of it!
This shower was for Tonya and her sweet baby girl. She decided to go with the ever-so-popular pink and brown. I just can not get enough of it...

I did not get as many pictures of the shower as I would have liked; but I did manage to get a picture of this cute little diaper cake... Another coworkers daughter made it for the shower...Isn't it just a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e?
I loved it! So much so that I promised myself that I would learn how to make one....

Side note: **** If you ever want to learn how to make a diaper cake, YouTube is a wonderful resource!*********

A Shower for Sandra

Back in March I hosted a birthday party/ bridal shower for Sandra at work.... Sandra is was one of my favorite employees as she always made me the absolute best homemade salsa ever!!!!

I decided to go with pink and zebra as the theme... The picture frame seen above and the candles seen below where purchased at the Dollar Tree and embellished with ribbon, rhinestones and flowers that were all in my scrapbooking stash at home!

I once asked a very popular event planner/florist if he could offer me one tip for hosting/having a fabulous event and he said lights make a world of difference.... And I believed that he was right! Here are a few more close-ups of the candle light....

And for my most cr8tive piece.... An altered bucket.... I purchased the bucket and ladle below from the Dollar Tree and altered it to make a punch bowl/bucket. As you can see I removed the handle and embellished it using the ribbon and flowers from my scrapping stash...

It was a major hit and I am soo proud of it!
Have you altered any common household items only to become a hit at your event? If so what was it and how was it used?
Up next.... do you have your umbrella!
I predict that a few showers are headed your way!

Is it really June 2nd?

I simply can not believe how quickly the time has passed... So many things have been happening in my world that I think that it is almost easier to just pick up where I am now than to try and go back and recap the past few months.

But I love you guys so much that I will not cheat you all like that =)! Instead, I will try and play catch up over the next few days/weeks/months.... LOL!

Up next.... Showers of Blessings!
