Hello! Happy Thursday! It's gotten hot here again and with only two weeks left of summer before school starts we are quite happy it's hot! :>
Today I have two cards to share that I made for the Scrapbooking Cafe Online's blog! I used the Hello Summer pad by Echo Park for both of them! I love this pad and had to make more cards with it before summer comes to a close! I actually made these cards this morning, the kids and I crafted together!
For more details please check out the post here.
On Tuesday night we celebrated Carter's birthday with a bbq party in the park! I love that his birthday is in the summer and I can have his party outside at the park, this was our fourth year doing that with great weather! We bring our bbq from home and bbq hot dogs and served it with four salads, Cesar, pasta, coleslaw and potatoe! He had a terrific turnout for his birthday over 60 people! Half of them being adults and the other half kids! With such a big play structure it works! I love planning parties and we did a superhero theme as he loves superheros right now. While I did a few decorations I didn't do as many as I had hoped, but that's what happens when the week before pretty much everyday someone in our family is sick (me included) and you don't feel well yourself! :> Here's a few photos from the day!
As you can see Carter got very blessed! Doesn't he look happy, lol?
As favors I made all the kids chocolate covered oreo's on a stick! I love making these as they are so much easier because you can lay them flat on the back to dry, not as messy and you don't have to worry about chocolate dripping off! Of course I forgot to take a photo of all of them luckily I have one left! :>
