Birthday Party and new Projects...

Today is Kaileigh's birthday. I can't believe she is 11. Where has the time gone??? She had a sleepover last night with her 2 BFFs and today we got together with our immediate family. I found a new recipe on for ice cream cake. It was very easy. Here's the recipe...

16 ice cream sandwiches
1 (16 ounce) container frozen non-dairy whipped topping
1 (12 ounce) jar chocolate fudge topping, room temperature

1. Place 8 of the ice cream sandwiches side by side in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Spread evenly with half of the hot fudge topping, then half of the whipped topping. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches and toppings. Sprinkle with grated chocolate bar.
2. Cover and freeze for at least 1 hour before serving. Keep unused portion covered and frozen.
(I layered crushed Oreos on top of the Hot Fudge) EVERYBODY LOVED IT!! This recipe's a keeper.

Here's my favorite picture of Kaileigh blowing out her candles... I love the dreamy look on her face.

Here are the photo frames that I made for her BFF's for their goodie bags. I put a photo of all of them from last night in them before we gave them to them this morning. I found these frames at the Dollar Tree and thought I could alter them. I painted them and used the Cuttlebug Olivia font for the word "friends". The flowers are Prima and the paper is from DCWV.

Here's a couple of Birthday Cards I made...

This one I used the Cuttlebug, Stickles, and ribbon.

This one I used the Christmas Light Bulbs from Chrismas Cheer for the flames...

I'm back!

I can't believe that April was the last time I posted. It's been a pretty busy back-to-school season so far. Kaileigh's birthday is on Sunday and she wanted to take hip hop dance lessons, so that's what we gave her for her birthday. Her first class was on Wednesday and she loves it. Giving her these dance lessons is so much better than buying her something that she will grow out of or lose interest in.

Leah will be starting Brownies next Thursday and it's all she talks about. She's so excited that she gets to do something "just like Mom did when she was a little girl".
I had showed her my Girl Scout sash with all of my badges and explained to her what you do when you are a Girl Scout/ Brownie and right then she decided that she wanted to do it.

Since it has been awhile since I posted, I thought I would post some of the things that I have made since my last visit. Here are some photos:

Here are a couple of recent photos of the girls.

This Kaileigh all dressed up...

Here's Leah at the park this past weekend...

So, this weekend Kaileigh is having a sleepover with 3 of her friends instead of the traditional family birthday party. I have a ton of cleaning and baking to do to get ready. I'm not sure what type of cake I will be baking for her this year- she has asked for a monkey so I guess I will be surfing for some monkey shaped cake ideas. I'm going to go to Dollar Tree tonight to make up a couple of goodie bags for the girls- probably some nail stuff and a little candy- I can't do too much on such short notice but I will try to make it alot of fun for her and her friends like I always do.
