This is what i've been up to....ELMO


Hey all, did we enjoy our weekend. Had fun with family and friends...i did. Last weekend was my grand baby's 2nd birthday and i just had to make a bunch of party favors for her...let's have a look and tell me what you think...did i go OVERBOARD????
I am the grandma don't forget:0)
First up Pinata which was a big fail....great idea and i had strings for the kids to pull but i made it a week in advance and the small strip of painters tape i used just wouldn't let go...let's just say it took three men to get it open..but in the end the kids loved all the treats inside...which included...fishy crackers, small kitkat bars and some gummy treats and a few chocolate dollars thrown in...i just sugared them up real good...



Then i made these cute boxes which i filled with two marshmallow dipped treats...one dipped in caramel than chocolate and the other just dipped in chocolate with a little white chocolate to dress it up.
Sugar cookies were also made to go with their theme of Elmo..Now in my defence these were the only treats they were to get but after seeing how to make the easy pinata i just had to go there...RIGHT???


Then i made these super cute personalized colouring books. Each child's name was on the cover and inside is each letter of their name spelled out with matching pictures to colour...So each book spells out their name...and i used my new binding machine to put them together...


Last but not least my daughter and i made these super fun cupcakes instead of a cake...all the kids loved them and even Avery helped put on a couple eyes and noses...i have to say we had some wonky looking Elmo's that day...

So what do you think....we had loads of fun and ate way too much sugar but the day was beautiful, everyone had a wonderful time...Many thanks for dropping by and will see you on my next post Wednesday for some more Redonkulous fun....

What a lucky little girl to have you as a grandma! And there is no such thing as overboard when you're talking about grandchildren:)!!!
Beautiful work with all of these amazing creations.
