Wee Memories Birthday Bash!

Hello!  Happy Saturday!  Welcome to another Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge!  I am quite excited that today is here!  Today is Ariel's first all kids birthday party!  She is having a princess party!  I have been enjoying coming up with ideas and shopping for her party and cannot wait!

This week our sponsor is There She Goes Clear Stamps! And we have a great prize of a Stamp Set of the Winners Choice!
This is a super special challenge this week as it's Wee Memories 1 year Blogaversary!  Yay Jenny!  Congratulations!  So we are having a BIRTHDAY BASH!  I thought it was perfect to share the birthday invitation I made for Ariel's birthday!  I made them while Chad was gone on the guy trip, I worked on them each night when the kids went to sleep while I watched reruns of one of my favorite sitcoms, How I Met Your Mother!  I only took pictures of 2 of the invites as it was dark the morning I sent most to school.

I stamped each princess on cardstock and colored them to look like each girl who was receiving the invite!  I used pattern paper from the Cosmo Cricket Pixie-Licious line.  I stamped the magical background by Hero Arts in white on the kraft.
After I colored each princess by the Greeting Farm than I roughly cut her out and attached her to adhesive magnet and than cut it out again.  It was so easy and worked really well!  I thought it would be more fun for the girls!




I so enjoyed making these!  And I really enjoyed coming up with the inside of the card too!  My friend and I wrote it together:

Princess Jayda
Please grace us with your
Royal presence at
Princess Ariel’s 5th
Birthday Party!
And enjoy and afternoon of
Games, crafts and snacks!
Please wear your finest
Princess gown!
The celebration will
Take place at
Princess Ariel’s
Castle

(you get the idea)
The invitation was a HUGE hit!  When Chad brought Ariel to her Sunday school class a few days after they were handed out two of the little girls came up to Ariel all excited and hugged her and thanked her for inviting them to her birthday party and how much they loved the invitation!  How sweet is that?  All the mom's have been telling me how excited there daughter was when they read the invitation to them!  One mom told me that her daughter talks about where she is going to put her princess today!  I am so pleased!  

Well I better run!  I have to go and frost the cake!  I will be back with photos!  I am so excited!  I hope you join us this week at Wee Memories and play with our challenge, it ends on Friday Novemeber 12th 11:59 pst!
