A Crafty Morning

Madison, my oldest went away with her nanna for a little holiday this weekend.  She was so excited, but I always hate it when she's not at home, which isnt very often at all.  So I packed me and Lillie (who's too little to take on holiday really) off to my lovely sisters for the night so I wouldnt have to look at Maddys empty bed (Im VERY soft when it comes to my kids!).

It was lovely to have a night and day with my sister and my handsome nephew though.  But more excitingly, we were going to start getting ready for his birthday party!  Neo will be one in just over a weeks time and my sister is throwing a party for him, as is tradition in our circles!!  Completely inspired by my crafty friend Estelle's party for her little girl (read all about it here) my sister wanted to do a Mickey Mouse party for him.

So, I set about researching on Pinterest (my latest obsession - but thats a whole other blog post!) and came up with loads of ideas and little crafty details I know my sister would love.  This morning we spent the morning getting crafty and we've started with, of course, Mickey Mouse invitations!!

We cut out mickey shapes from black card, and made a little pocket with some red card, then my sister made the little rhyme to go on the inserts.  I think you'll agree, they're too cute!!  The whole tutorial can be seen on a fab blog called In Flight Party Ideas and Inspiration.

We've got LOADS of other Mickey Mouse ideas, but you'll just have to wait and see the rest!!

Until next time x x

p.s. my friend Estelle who did the fab Fairy and Elves party has a new blog!  Check it out here
