Feature You Friday - An "A"dorable Party

Good morning CraftyStealers!

A while back, I wrote a blog post over at StitchSteals about some aprons I had made (using Silhouette heat transfer) for a couple of sweet girls who were turning 5.  I thought I was being pretty darn crafty with those aprons. See?
Well, when I got to the party, I was BLOWN AWAY at the craftiness of their mama, Lori, a friend and CraftySteals fan.  The decorations and little touches - most of them made by the Silhouette - were fabulous.  Stephanie was there as well, and we decided that we HAD to share this party with all of you.  So here goes...

Here is the sign on the front door.  Now when I walked up, I thought to myself, "How cool! I wonder where she got that."
Then I walked in and saw this... 
And these hanging...
And then this on the table with an assortment of coordinated colorful goodies. 
I realized then that she had done it all.  Front door to backyard. And that wasn't even it!  Here are the cupcakes with their Silhouette made toppers,
and here's the "Happy Birthday" banner that she HAND-CUT out of corrugated cardboard with a box cutter and painted, (This is even cuter in person!)
and the party favors with their dimensional sentiments (my kids went crazy for the little bubble gum dispensers that were inside of them).
Thanks, Lori, for letting us showcase all of your hard work! It was a beautiful party (and so much fun!). Yes, it was so much fun that my 6-year-old jumped into the pool with his clothes on!! Right before I had to take him to play in a baseball game.  (At least he took off his shoes, right?)  I hope you all enjoyed seeing this fabulous party - and maybe take away a little inspiration from your fellow CraftySteals fan.

Enjoy your Friday!
