A Birthday Party for Ava today!

Today we had a "Tea Party" for Ava's 3rd birthday. She invited her sister and two friends. I decorated. I had a blast getting ready for her party. It was so much fun turning our family room into a little cottage wrapped in lace and flowers...
I made this little "Birthday Fairy" of Ava. I just printed a photo of her in her Christmas dress in black and white and glued it onto chipboard and then black cardstock. I cut her out, glued her onto a Ball jar lid and glued on the embellishments. I was in heaven. I then placed her on a cake platter and topped it with a glass lid. It looks darling!
I set the kids table from their play room with china, got out my vintage hat and glove collection. The girls played with their Barbies and then we had a "Photo Shoot". While they ate lunch I printed the photos in black and white onto white cardstock and later they colored in the flowers and whatever they wanted with colored pencils.
After the girls all went home, I played with the photos a little more with Photoshop. Life can't get any better than this!!!!!!

This time you've out-fabuloused yourself! I would have died to have a party like that as a little girl.

And can I just say that the resemblance of Ava to Brooke is indeed a bit eerie?

Happy B-day Aves!

Seriously ... we're talking magazine fodder here. It doesn't hurt that all those girls are so very photogenic.

It also doesn't hurt that you have so much dang talent.

Oh my goodness, you really are quite fabulous! :) Every little girl needs a party like that. It's way better than Hannah Montana or whatever kids are into these days.
