The Alice in Wonderland party...

My darling little baby girl turned 5 this past Sunday. I started a trend with my children of over the top themed parties. Even when it is just us or us and a friend I still go out of my way to make it special. I enjoy planning and theming the parties. I may have missed a calling in life!

Lizzy's request this year was a tea party. She went through several different themes before settling on Alice in Wonderland. I will be making a scrapbook page soon with the pictures but here are a couple of my favorites. Sadly my little girl ended up being sick on Sunday, mostly after her party but you can tell she wasn't feeling 100% in the pictures.

Graduation pop up ball

I recently purchased the pop up ball die by Sizzix. I have been playing around with this little guy, trying to come up with some neat ways to use it. I have learned that extra heavy duty cardstock is a must! One of my friends from my local scrapbook store, Felicia's Scrapbooks, was having a party for her daughter's high school graduation. I had the idea of turning the ball into a grad cap stuck in my head. The card is made in her school colors.
