M&M Birthday Party

If your kid's name starts with M, this is a great party idea.  Or, if they just like m&m candies.  And who doesn't??

This was an easy party.  We just put white "m" stickers on the goodie bags and filled them with M&M pencils, magnets, and of course the candy.  They each had a t-shirt in the bag that my sister made at the screen printer's where she worked, but you could probably get the same look with a Yudu machine. Super easy cupcakes had solid color icing with a white m.

This is the easy layout for my daughter's scrapbook.  I journaled inside one of the orange circle cards that we used for invitations.  The red circle and white 5 are Basic Grey chipboard.

This is the easiest journaling I have ever done.  I simply asked my daugher what she remembered about her party and wrote it down word for word including pronunciation (bery instead of very, merchine for machine).  I love how it turned out.  She remembered things that I was not even aware of and I love that it shows her sense of humor.

LOVE mini album

This little mini album was made with a Cosmo Cricket kit.

Love the inside.  Love the big letters.  Love the tags that pull out for pics or journaling.  Love the color scheme that is not just pink and red.  Love the ribbons.  Love the vintage look.

Miniature Loofah

I made this loofah for my daughter's dollhouse with just a little bit of tulle and embroidery thread.

Bottlecap monograms

My daughter and I made these bottlecaps to make necklaces with elastics and metal washers.

We circle punched stickers as a background and put monogram stickers on top.

Glossy Accents goes over the whole thing to seal it and a strong magnet is glued to the back using E6000 glue.
