A Roaring Good Time

The birthday party is over (yet my house is still full of balloons and dinosaurs)! Time was not my friend in the week leading up to the party so I was only able to complete about 1/2 of the projects I had planned. AND, my silly husband forgot to take pictures of some of the things I did finish. Oh, well.

I purchased a pack of solid color party hats from Party City once I found that colorful digital kit mentioned in the previous post. My handy Xyron 510 was the perfect tool to apply adhesive to the dinosaurs that I cut out to embellish the hats.

Photoshop is my friend, but I am FAR from an expert. I figured out how to make this simple panel using the digital kit. This made customizing the basic goodie bags super simple!

The balloons attached to the chandelier in our dining room remains my favorite birthday party decoration to date! How cheap and easy is this? Blow up some balloons, tie some colored curling ribbon to the balloons, attach to the light fixture and you're done! Festive and pretty for about 50 cents!!!

My son's fourth birthday is coming up this Sunday. I purchased some American Crafts dinosaur paper (from the fabulous Junior line), but still needed some more dinosaur "stuff". A quick Google search led me to this adorable digital scrapbooking kit!

Dino*Roar kit from Eden Lane Designs.

I am, by no means, a digital scrapbooker, but I am finding this kit very user friendly. For $4.50 I was willing to take my chances and I have been pleasantly surprised! I have yet to actually make anything, but I've printed up a bunch of dinosaurs in different sizes and am about to spend my evening cutting them out while watching American Idol and the Olympics. Can't wait to share the finished birthday party projects with you soon!
