The Fish Family (How you can help!!)

I recently read an amazing story about the Fish family on the blog NoBiggie. The Fish's have 5 children (3 girls and 2 boys). Two of the five children have a very rare disease call Leaky SCID's which requirest a lot of medical attention. And with all medical needs come expenses, and this family has A LOT of them. (You can learn more about the disease and this family by watching the video below)

Determined to figure out a way to help this beautiful family, I contacted my long time and dear friend Kori Clark (owner and designer of Paper and Pigtails). Kori has offered to donate all proceeds to the Fish family of any purchases made of her "Under the Sea" paper printables line. All customers will have to use the code FISH FAMILY at check out for this donation to be made. Below are links to her "Under the Sea" line.

With summer right around the corner I am sure you can find a reason to throw a "Under the Sea" themed party right!!! And if not, the donation alone would be appreciated.

Thank you Kori for being so generous and thoughtful.

Blake's 5th Birthday Scooby Doo Bash!!!

Two weeks ago, my nephew Blake (who I swear was just born yesterday!!) turned 5. Blake, like most little boys his age, loves Scooby Doo. Well, that's the theme my sister decided to go with when she asked me to help with ideas for his party and I must say she did a great job!!

How adorable are these invites she ordered off Etsy!!! Do you see Blake in the van?!?

My friend Melonie made these "far out" coordinating water bottle lables.

My husband and I made this "groovy" Mystery Machine!!!

Here are my doodlebugs with their cousin (aka: the birthday boy).
Yeah, couldn't get anything better out of them than these cheesy faces!!! LOL

Happy Birthday to my adorable nephew Blake, hope your party was as fun as you are.

First of all, I would like to apologize for the lack of post.  The Girls, Christmas, the New Year, our recent trip to Disneyland and our new puppy has seem to have gotten the best of my time.  Well, with that said, I have started my mission to start the early planning stages of Catherine's 4th birthday bash!!! Catherine is a HUGE Hello Kitty fan (I think she has more Hello Kitty shirts than I have shoes!!!).  So, I started searching for Hello Kitty themed parties on some of the blogs I follow to get some ideas and just had to share these adorable parties with you. 

The first one is from Bird's Party Blog and there are so many things about this party I love and can not pin point just one!!

for more photos and details about this party you can check it out here.

The second party comes from Richterology.  Stephanie did an amazing job putting this precious party together for her two girls.

Be sure to check out all the other photo's and cuteness from this party HERE.

AND.....the last one was featured on Save the Date for Cupcakes (unfortunately, the original blog it was featured on is no longer available).  This party is so far up the cuteness scale that I can hardley take it!!!


Don't you just love it?!?!

Well after all this searching she informed me that she wants a puppy themed party, so it's back to the searching!!!!

Ooh la la...Charlotte's 6th birthday Paris party

For those of you who know Charlotte, you know she is nothing less than a Diva!!! So, when I came across this adorable Paris themed customized party printable set from Paper Glitter I knew I had found what I was doing for her 6th birthday! I loved how everything turned out and I think she did too because of all the "thank you's" I got from her after the party.

How cute is this poodle?!? My mom made this adorable "Pin the tail on the Poodle" for her party out of felt and it came out fabulous!

And here is my little birthday girl cheating trying to feel where the tail is!!!!

My birthday munchkin and I (completely forgot to get a pic with the whole family!!)

Happy Birthday sweetheart. Can't believe another year has come and gone. It's hard to believe how fast you and your little sister are growing up in to such little ladies.
