After work, I packed up some card making supplies (a kit I got for Christmas) and went to my friend Juanita's house. I planned a girls night for me and her daughter; my 6 year old friend, Alexa. It was recently her birthday, and we celebrated! We made this pile of cards together (for her future parties, and notes to her friends)
*TIP* This card kit is from Costco ($20cdn). It had EVERYTHING to make 48 cards (no tools/glue needed)! With LOTS of girly fun embellishments, Alexa loved the selection and it was fun and easy to make the cards. We freestyled. Now she has lots of cards on hand for parties, and it was a fun fun craft project :) Worth it for sure!
After over-embellishing our butts off, we headed to the mall for a surprise :) Alexa's first photobooth experience!!! She was SO cute!!! She kept wanting to do the same pose (fingers beside her smile)... it was pretty adorable! We did three strips, and she naturally waited for the photos like i do. I shed a little proud invisible tear ;)
Then of course, we sugared up with Sundaes :)
Alexa said, "Miss.Leigh-Ann, I had a lot of fun tonight :) Thank-you *gooey*smile*. Here are six things that I liked most: (she really listed it, lol, just like i do) Making the cards, playing with you, driving in your car, going to the photo machine, being just girls---nooo boys, and ice cream! This is like a date." She really is the most special 6 year old I know.
And for her birthday present, I made her a Ballerina Style Photobooth Album with room for more Photobooth pics :) I suggested she ask her brothers to go in with her, and her mom and dad. She was pretty giddy at those ideas. Mini-me ;)
