A Cherry Sweet Birthday

Today we are going to a birthday party for one of Logan's (girl)friends. ;)
Alyssa is turning eight, and apart from being a HUGE Justin Bieber fan, she loves all things girly. I pick up things from the Target Dollar Spot all the time without any real projects in mind, and for occasions like this. Since I have all boys, I don't really keep up with what is the "in" girl thing, but keeping coordinating goodies on hand, it is pretty easy (and fun) to create a cute gift in no time.

We got Alyssa the Justin Beiber DVD (not pictured), but I wanted to put some other things with it, so I dug through my stash and found a few things I thought she might like. I had been itching to use my Papertrey Ink Fruit Fusion: Cherries stamp set for awhile now, and this was the perfect opportunity. The tote bag, clipboard, notepad, and pink polkadot box are all from the Tagret Dollar Spot. I dressed up some movie theatre sized boxes of candy for her to enjoy while watching her new movie, and inside the pink box, there are mini sized Cherry scented goodies from Bath and Body Works that I picked up over the summer. Then I made a matching postcard style card for her. I just love that the tote bag can double as a gift bag, and used again later.

That's it for now... off to the lake for her party! :)
