mad hatters tea party!!!!

Last week, actually the last few weeks have seen me busy, busy, busy helping to plan my BEAUTIFUL friend Bec's Hens Doo. Us Bridesmaids decided to make it a "Mad Hatter's Tea Party" theme and I nominated myself to make the invitations (which I haven't photographed yet... but I will I promise!!!) and some gifties and other bit and bobs for the day. (I know... funny I should nominate me!!!) hahaha.

I made three little gifts to give as prizes on the day. First up was this sweet little box which saw in the new upcoming Summer Mini.

I used Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Choc Chip and Whisper White and the NEW stampset (also available in the Summer Mini) called Hello Again.
Inside the box were some little Note Cards and Envelopes, which I decorated with the same stamp set and some DSP from my retired stash - Summer Picnic.

The next little gift I first saw on my gorgeous friend and fellow SU! demo Sarah Klass's blog (*waving*). I absolutely LOVED making this little pressie, and will definately be making more:-

This one I've used Kraft and some Riding Hood Red DSP with some Pink Pirouette Ribbon and again the Hello Again stamp set. Inside I've popped in one of my SU! pens, a little pink Post-it note (well actually the whole pad!!! lol)... and a little SU! magnet.

The third little pressie was this gorgeous little oragami box... these are so quick and easy to make. Inside was a little gift of body cream and shower gel.

I didn't stop there though... Oh no!!! For those of you that know me, you would also know that when it comes to organising little parties and then having the chance to make little crafty things, I tend to get a wee bit excited and then can't seem to stop myself. Soooooo... given it was infact a Mad Hatters Tea Party, I went about making a few little "Eat Me" and "Drink Me" tags... and yep.. I did let out little squeals of excitement when I'd finished... I know.. It doesn't take much.

And here we are (R to L) Bec - The Beautiful Bride to Be (with the White feathers), and Kylie, myself, and Karen (The Bridesmaids).

We had such a FUN day and night!!! Now I can't wait for the wedding.. oh did I mention it was on HAMILTON ISLAND!!!!!!! Wooo Hooo!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
