Every year teachers and staff work extremely hard to give our kids their all. To show our appreciation on of the gifts we did was Pinterest inspired. It involves liquid soap, over head projector transparencies, and a printer. We made 100 of these for our school staff. Orange soap was used to match our school colors. I used goo be gone to get the sticky sticker off the front printed on a transparencies, cut it, rolled it, and fit it in the bottle.

With a little bit of imagination and some ol'fashion fun you can have a fun filled birthday at home. We've done the pizza place parties ect... and the kids had fun but they didn't do activities that really got them to interact. I remember as a kid making forts out of sheets and furniture. And like mother like daughter, mine came up with the idea for a sleepover style. So for my daughters 11th birthday we had an indoor camping party! Including the lake (above ground pool) Campfire (portable camping stove) and a tent (made from 5-6 queen size sheets and the entire living room). The only thing different was we set it up so they would have the t.v. as there theater.

|We used the couches, and 5 queen sheets, and strong twine cords to hold up the camp. It was easy to clean up as well. :)|

My daughter LOVES Nancy Drew. So for her 12th birthday we set off to figure out how to decorate Nancy Drew style. We started with Pinterest and there were some awesome ideas. That is where we got this one. She is one lucky little girl as her dad works for a wonderful printing company called Biltmore Proprint. They were able to recreate a book style invite with great detail. All the way down to putting her face on the cover and volume 12 (for her age) and initials on the tree. The girls were on the case they read the clues and it lead them to a pinata filled with goodies. A fun time was had by all.
Oh, and to add to the party I used svg files and my Cricut to cut out Nancy Drew silhouettes along with question marks and magnifying glasses.

I bought a Christmas SVG file from SVGCUTS and made these cute sleighs for the office ladies at our school. They fit Santa and his presents perfectly. I used chocolate nuggets and wrapped them with the All Wrapped Up Stamp Set from Stampin Up.
