Party Time!

I am SO excited! I'm doing a birthday party 'CTMH-style' for the daughter of a friend next Saturday. My friend is a stamper and enjoys Close To My Heart products. Her daughter turned 9 recently and decided that she would like to do a stamp/scrapbooking project for her party. So, my job was to create a project for 14 girls to do that is a little bit scrappy, a little bit stampy, and a lot of fun!
I spent quite awhile working on this yesterday and I am so happy with the result! I had a ton of fun making this album and accomplished all the goals I had in mind. It's adorable and easy; it will give them a taste of what both scrapbooking and stamping are like; and with different papers all pre-cut, and several stamp sets to choose from, it will give them a little room to experiment with the creative process.
I've been wanting to try a party like this for a long time so I'm very excited that I was approached with this opportunity. I think it's such an awesome party idea...the project can be tailored to the host child's interests and the guest go home with an absolutely rockin' party favor!!
For this party, the birthday girl picked the All-Sorts chipboard album and the paper pack Tinkerin' and I gave some suggestions for embellishments from which the mom chose: Badge Buttons, Just Blooms, brads, and ribbon.
I can't wait for party day!!
