I just finished these party favor boxes (thank you Cricut). How cute are they? I can't wait to try all of the boxes on the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartride! These are pink for the girls and I'm making green ones without the flower closure for the boys. For inside the girls' boxes I've made these little matchbook notepads and I'm waiting for the flower shaped crayons to come in (from etsy, of course). The boys' boxes will have notepads too but in army fatique paper and their crayons are spiderman shaped!! I got the spiderman crayons from AurorasThings. I also wrapped the Hershey's chocolate bars in the same patterned paper that I used for the invites, boxes, etc. It's all coming together!

We went to a friend's house for dinner on Friday (July 4th) and were having such a great time when one of their little boys had an accident and got a cut on his forehead! Oh my word - you would not believe the amount of blood that was POURING down his face!!! I thought I was going to be sick. Thankfully, they were able to use derma-bond to seal the gap in the ER. Oh, but it was a horrible sight. I felt so bad for his mom! We (Henry & I) kept big brother while Mom & Dad took little brother to the ER. They ended up getting back just as the town fireworks were starting so we watched them from the deck out back. Of course, I didn't get any pictures! Every year I say I'm going to get some pictures to make a nice page and it never works out.

Remember how I said 'no more custom orders'? Guess what. I said yes to a custom request. Remind me later when I'm yanking my hair out that I could've said no!

Have a great week, everybody!!
