Avery's Pirate Party

My son Avery recently turned 4.  We decided to throw him a Jake and the Neverland Pirates birthday party. 

We had planned to throw it mostly outdoors and use our swing set as "Jake's Hideout".  But, it was a rainy day so the entire party got moved indoors.  That made things a little cramped, but we made it work. 

When guests arrived we had an "X marks the spot" on our front door.
 
Then the children could play in "Bucky's Ball Pit" while waiting for the rest of the guests to arrive.



 
Once everyone had arrived we had a swashbuckling lunch.






                                                                           
 
Then the children received pirate hats and a treasure map.

 
The treasure maps guided the children to different activity stations.





 
Next, it was back to Bucky to open gifts.


 
Then time for cake and icecream.
 
 
 
I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at my son's party.  Here are a few more pictures of the day.

Go Bucks.....Again

In December I posted a layout I had made for a challenge.  I wasn't too fond of the layout.  I didn't like it before I even started it.  Since it was a challenge we had to follow a sketch and certain requirements.  And I just didn't care for that particular sketch.  So, I decided to redo the layout and this is what I came up with.  I kept a couple of the things from the original but I changed it a bit as well.

Nuts About You

Here's a quick and simple layout I did recently of my son when he was younger.

Pajama Party

Here is my 4th week entry for the Last Scrapper Standing Challenge over at Creative Swappers.

 
 

There were a couple of things I wasn't crazy about but had to have them to meet the requirements...so after the challenge I changed a few things.  Here is the final layout.

 

And a close up of my journaling.
