Every party starts with an invitation ... this is what I created! Look at this camo!!! I used the Work of Art Stamp Set and stamped over a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock in three green Stampin' Up! colors.
There are a lot of fun details with this birthday party! It was a blast to put together for Ariono. We had 8 little boys come over in the afternoon for 2 and a half (long) hours of games and treats. We had Nerf guns and over 100 bullets flying around.
Loot bags. Oh, those loot bags. Are they not just getting out of control??? I confess, I may put too much effort into loot bags. These brown paper bags had a candy grenade, candy Popeye cigarettes, a large army man figure and a parachute man. I found plastic dog tags at the party store and had them hanging down the front of the bag.
The birthday boy needed a perfect birthday card for the occasion ...
After the school friends left we invited our family and friends over for dinner and cake. It was a long day but so worth it. Ariono was full of love and joy (and sugar) when he went to bed that night. I asked him what his favorite part of the day was, he said that it was having all of the people over. That is what it is all about. Being with the people you love to celebrate someone you love.
