Sweet 16

I hope you all had a nice three day weekend. As for me, it seemed more like a week than three days! Usually I love three day weekends but this weekend we were so busy! We celebrated my daughters 16th birthday on Saturday and today my family ran in the Great Aloha Run. Talk about exhausting! But don't get me wrong, it was tons of fun! I'm just glad its over.

So for all those Hello Kitty fans this post is for you. I couldn't get away without making my own daughter her very own Hello Kitty favors for her friends. Since they are a little older I had to make something more age appropriate so I came up with these:

Rockstar Hello Kitty 1-quart paint cans with matching clocks.

I used Fushia Swarovski crystals in place of the missing numbers and on the pails in Hello Kitty's bow.

Placed all the clocks in those cute little Hello Kitty bags you see in the background and filled each paint can with goodies.
The girls loved them!

Here's a picture I took of my daughter (the one holding the baby) and some of her friends while we were setting up.

Happy Sweet 16 baby girl!

Happy Valentine's Day

My gosh where has the time gone? I have been so behind in this blogging thing that I didn't realize that I hadn't posted any Valentine's creations and my internet was on the fritz yesterday so please bear with me as I will put them all in this post.

Here are a couple of gift card holders made with PTI's Cash or Charge template and Echo Park's Be Mine Collection. This line from Echo Park is my favorite Valentine line this season. Super cute!

This is what it looks like when you pull the tab to reveal your gift card. I just love this template.

Next up is a simple candy book box that I created. Sorry, I don't have a template put together. I just measured and cut as I went along and didn't write anything down. I'm sure you can find templates to similar projects online.
For this project I used TGF's Cheeky Glamour and Echo Park's Be Mine collection.

I used chipboard covered with DP for the covers and spine and finally gave those paper roses a try. They're so fun to make and easy too!

I just love using Ferrero Rochere candies (as you can see! LOL) They're so pretty and so YUM-O!

Here's a Lolli-Pop Along, again from PTI.
I made some of those lollipop flowers with some pretty tissue paper and stuck em in there. The flowers are kinda smushed by the acetate but I love how these turned out. I made these for my niece and nephew all the way in Texas. The stamp set and chipboard pieces used for this is by Martha Stewart.

Lastly, my daughter loves word art and she is always posting quotes and phrases on Facebook so I found this cute phrase on Lucky Lemon and decided to make her this picture frame. Very simple and plain but she isn't into all the frilly stuff. The other night when I was making those paper roses she was so intrigued with them so I had to throw a couple on here.

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day, thanks so much for stopping by!
