Camping under the stars

Oh what fun….. at the end of the week my friend’s daughter is going to Girl Guide Camp. I can remember going to girl guide camp as a young girl and having the time of my life.

So to wish her the time of her life with lots of great adventures, making new friends and earning badges I made her this card.

Isn’t it cute? I used Recollections and Bazzill Cardstock for the base and the background I cut from a 12×12. The fire is a sticker embellishment from Michaels.

This is part of the Bo Bunny Camp A Lotpaper and embellishment collection. I matted a cardstock sticker  from the Fireside Fun Sticker Sheet…… I love, love, love this collection. I love the little sign by the tents that says  “Welcome Campers”.

I made a 3″ girl guide from the Paper Doll Dress Up and the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridges. To make the guide tie I used the smallest maple leaf stamp I had and used Memento Bahama Blue ink.

And if you’re like me …. you can’t draw, so I used Peachy Keen’s PK490 Everyday Character Faces Assortment. I gave her some pink cheeks and used my Sukura White Gelly Roll pen for the eyes.

I used DecoArt Snow Writer to make the marshmallows and then used chalk to make them “roasted”… heeeheee.

I used the Spellbinders Grommet Tags and the Peony Dies, stamped and colored with asstorted Tombows and Copics. The sentiment is Happy Camper from Imaginisce.

I added a couple of buttons… the tree and the blue tent as “grommets”.

Well I sure hope she has the best time at camp and brings home lots of great memories. I know I did.

I will be Linking Up to Sarah Hamer’s Link Up Tuesday... you should head on over and check out what everybody has been up to.

I will also be linking up to the Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge – Peachy Challenge #23 – Anything goes. Stop by and check out all the great entries.

Do You Believe In Magic ????

Well my friend’s daughter does and so for her 9th birthday, she had a magician at her party.

So wanting to help out I decided to make a few decorations for the event. I started with her favorite color blue, added some red and started thinking….

Red and Blue stars


What Magician doesn’t come with a bunny or 2 ??
I sandwiched each bunny between 2 Top Hats,
so when hanging it looked like they were in the hat.

and of course a Top Hat !


 Now for a session of Pin the Wand on the Magician.
I cut him at 16″ the largest size possible.

Wands for everyone !
I wrote each child’s name on the wand with my silver sharpie
and put 2 glue dots on the back. Then round and round we go…


Looks like we have 2 first place winners but everyone is a winner.
Each child got to pick prizes out of a Top Hat.

Now back to the Top Hat…
I originally wanted to make Top Hat Bags for loot bags but time ran out so
…. I made a small tag and used some white ink and stamped away.

Found some star party loot bags and attached each Top Hat with white curly ribbon.
Full of fun goodies like pop rocks, glow in the dark necklaces,
wizard erasers and highlighters….

Found some Top Hats at the dollar store in all the Halloween stuff
and used them for magical bowls.
