Fireman Birthday Party

My son’s fourth birthday party was a huge success!!! It could not have worked our any better than it did, and most importantly he LOVED it.   He had about 11 friends plus a few siblings and the Arvada Fire Station number 7 send over a pumper engine so when the kids arrived they were greeted by three awesome fire fighters!!! I created a few games which I saw on Pinterest and my son even helped with them.

First game was Flame Bean Bag Toss:

Bean Bag Flame Toss ~ Fireman Birthday ~ catscrapbooking.com

To make this game I used a 20″X30″ sheet of foam core board. Cut three circles then painted with acrylic paint.  I made the bean bags with some gingham fabric and filled with small white beans.

Fire Hydrant Ring Toss ~ Fireman Birthday ~ Catscrapbooking.comI created the fire hydrant ring toss by taking a large oatmeal container as the main base.  The top is a bowl I purchased as a set at the dollar store.  The two arms are toilet paper rolls which were cut in half.  the fronts are spools from ribbons with bottle tops from waters.  The top of the fire hydrant is a spool on the right and a top to a vitamin container on left. I then spay painted the whole thing in red. I used foam insulation from the hardware store to make the rings.Fire Truck Races ~ Fireman Birthday ~ CatScrapbooking.comI created two fire trucks from boxes I picked up at Costco.  The only issue was I had to close in one of the sides.  I then spray painted them red.  The tires and head lights are plates. The siren lights are cups.  The ladder and windshield are poster board.  I used a bit of ribbon to work as a strap enabling them to wear the fire trucks.Fire Truck ~ Fireman Birthday ~ CatScrapbooking.com

Here is the birthday boy having fun playing in the fire truck.

These were the treat bags for the kids. The fire fighter tag was cut using a SVG with my Silhouette.  I designed two last cards to go along with this party one was for my son on his birthday and the others are thank you cards for all the gifts.

Color Dare #145 ~ Sunset, Honey, Topiary, Pacifica, Gypsy, White Daisy and Desert Sand

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week we are featuring Sunset, Honey, Topiary, Pacifica, Gypsy, White Daisy and Desert Sand for Color Dare #145.

11182238_10152982591129440_3376621356148734751_nI have been wanting to play around with the stamp set Shower Flowers as it has some really cute flowers which can be layered.  When I saw these colors, I knew it would be perfect for this weeks color challenge.

Color Dare #145 ~ Shower Flowers ~ ctmh ~ catscrapbooking.comI love the fundamental paper packs as when you need a pattern paper they work every time.  I used the Topiary which is from the Adventure Fundamental paper pack as my background.  I then used the Sunset, Honey, Topiary, Pacifica, Gypsy, and Desert Sand inks and stamped on White Daisy cardstock using the Shower Flower C1612.  It did involve a lot of fussy cutting but the end result is worth it.  I used foam tape to pop some up and adhered all of them to Desert Sand cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped using Finding the Words D1646 using Sunset ink for the banner and Pacifica for the words.

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #145.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday June 11, 2015 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!
