Freya's birthday!!

My eldest was 8 yesterday and celebrated in style with a Creation Station Arty Party.  Lots of children, lots of paint and lots of sprinkles and then lots of children, lots of clay and lots of glue.  So far we've only found two big blobs of paint on the carpet.  If anyone can suggest how to remove that, that would be just lovely.

Anyway, here is her card, made principally using my Gypsy and Cricut:

entered into
 ABC Challenge Y is for Yesterday (it was her birthday yesterday, geddit?!)
Penny's Challenges - Happy Birthday
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
House of Gilli - Lots of Sparkle
KB Challenges - Anything Goes
Bling it on - Anything Goes

and here are some of the party bag contents...

Everyone got a personalised notebook which I made using my bind it all and then the boys got a keyring and the girls got a bracelet (as well as all the other normal paraphernalia that goes in the damn things!)

and here's her cake

No more parties to cater for until February 2012 now!
