Ribbon and a fake pumpkin….. yup. I like it. But it did not start that way. Sometimes I have this idea and I think, that will look great. Then I try it. Below is my first attempt.
Hummmm, this looked better in my head than it did in real life. So, I didn’t give up. I just took it apart and tried something else.
There’s a moral in there somewhere.
Fun and games with the birthday boy turning double digits. Games, play, costumes, searching for gems, pulled pork sliders and picnic food. What fun!
The birthday boy and his “crew” prepare for battle.
First game of Kid Kubb goes to the little ones.

Mom and Dad still have the energy to smile after hosting such a full energy bash.
The birthday boy dabs out.
Birthday party costume — crafting fun
A quick trip though a fabric store (silver material) and a scrapbooking department (for two sheets of glitter paper) was all I needed for this terrifying costume.
I already had the plastic nails (doesn’t everyone), and only needed to paint the nail part silver.
What took the longest was drawing out lightening bolts and cutting them from the two glitter papers stuck together. I did all sizes of bolts. Two bolts were connected to a ring, which secured the cape.
Small lightening bolts were taped onto an old bracelet.
The hardest part was making the earrings, which I combined with crystals to add some extra sparkle.
The crowning glory (pun intended) was three bolts punched and woven with a sparkle pipe cleaner around an old plastic tiara. We all have those lying around, right?
I dressed in black and had a blast (there’s another pun for ya) at the party.
