We had a combo 4th of July/Liz's 30th Birthday Party last weekend. It was a great time...lots of food, friends, and fireworks! I attempted to do everything outside, but 15 minutes before the party was to start, it started to rain :( Boo! Pulled everything inside.
Here's one of my decorations I made for the party. The can is an old Similac container (those come in handy!). The large circles and stars were done on Rhiannon's cricut and I punched 2" circles and used two different alphabet stamps for the writing.
The best surprise of the day came when I got to open presents....12 of my girlfriends went in together to give me money so I can get a Cricut Expression all of my own!!! YAY!!!! I ordered it last week and am watching the shipping notice daily to see when it'll get here!
