Looks like everyone had so much fun! Makes me remember my daughters birthday's when she was this age...now she's trying to think of ideas for her 16th...not taking many suggestions from mom right now. ;-)
Have a wonderful week ~ Rebecca

My girl just loved the party. She actually took her art doll project and embellished it with more crafty goodness....like coloring nail polish on the nails, adding earrings, sandals, etc. That craft is so stinkin' adorable!

Oh my friend, you are a girl after my own heart! You know, you have inspired me in so many ways - first with Close To My Heart and then by encouraging me to start a blog which, as you said, has totally changed my creative life! This party is stunning and they are so lucky to have you as their Mom. Now, how can I get my hands on that first picture? You should sell the print . . . Bravo, Kristin xo

I laughed at the picture of your husband in the room of girls-poor guys ;) You're daughter is a lucky girl!
