Birthday Goodies

Sunday night...all is quiet in the house...another work week, first week of school for my husband (he's a teacher) and my kids, new teachers and new homework, soccer scrimmages, first soccer games on Saturday...This coming week will be busy busy busy I am sure. So i'm enjoying the quiet while it lasts.

If you have a Cricut and you have the SCAL software, I highly recommend the templates from My Scrap Chick. She has a set of bag templates that I use all the time. In fact, here is one now!


I used the Confetti line from America Crafts to decorate the front of the box. I love the AC lacy ribbon and I added some cute Jillibean Soup stick pins!


And a pinwheel on a stick...what says birthday more than a pinwheel on a stick? No??


I love having projects like this already completed. So when I remember at the last minute it's somebody's birthday, I already have a gift bag ready to go. And a pinwheel.

Hope you had a great weekend!! Thanks for stopping by...
