Happy Birthday Little Bean!

I am such a lucky mom and my darling daughter turned 8 this week!  I can't tell you how much I love her. This year she is obsessed with Pokemon and Pikachu.  Case in point- here is her Halloween costume.

This costume was made by our dear neighbor.  You can't see the stripes on the back and the zig-zag tail, but it is there.  Pretty cute eh?!

So....since her birthday is 3 days post-Halloween, we are having a Pokemon Party.  I made her a card for her actual birthday and some party favors for the kids party. 

The card is made from Lawn Fawn circle dies and circle and oval punches.  I used my Copics to add the mouth, nose and color to the ears and tail.  She loved it.  

For her party, I made a variety of things.  First a Pokemon ball tag, simply colored half red and used washi across the middle.  I used circle punches for the middle and put each kids initial on each tag.  In the background you can see the Pokemon trainer certificate, one for each kid with their name printed from my computer.  Next a Pokemon ball decoration or ornament.  This is a clear plastic holiday ornament.  I put tape down the middle and painted the inside of each half with white and red. It took several coats of paint.  Once dry I closed them up and used electric tape around the outside to hold it together and provide the black stripe.  More circle punches add the center mounted on dimensionals and a finishing touch of twine. I'll also be adding a few Pokemon cards and some appropriate colored starburst.  Come back later to see more decor and the party treats!

So..... I think you can tell I love my little Bean Bag (as we like to call her) and this is one of the ways I show it.  I hope she has an amazing birthday party because she is an amazing girl!
