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.

Birthday Boy!!! Aka Fire Chief!

Today is my son’s fourth birthday, wow where doses the time go?  Any way I have been busy working on planning a Fireman theme birthday for him.  He as been so excited and actually seems to be enjoying helping me with some of the creations I have been working on.  I will share more this weekend but I figured I would start with the all important invitation.

Fireman Birthday ~ 4th Birthday ~ catscrapbooking.com The card design is a SVG file from Silhouette Design Store.  I used all Close to My Heart paper ~ Whisper, Slate, Ruby, Black, Canary and Sapphire and In The Background D1540  (retired) stamp set with Canary ink.  Here is what the inside looks like.

All I can say is I have one happy little boy with just the invitations alone.  I hope he has a spectacular birthday!

ABC’s Blog Hop ~ F

ABC's Blog Hop

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter “F”. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “F” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at LINDA’S Blog ~ SCRAPPY THERAPY

If you came from LINDA’S Blog ~ SCRAPPY THERAPY  then you’re on the right track!

For my “F” design element I chose a fire truck.  I am part of a moms club here in Spokane, so we try to organize activities for moms and our kids.  I organized a tour for our club at one of the local fire stations.  The fire fighters were so nice and patient with all the kids.  I wanted to send them a thank you card, so I designed this fire truck card.

ABC's Fire Station Thank you

For this project I used all Close to My Heart Cardstock and my Silhouette to cut the shapes.  I used Cranberry, Honey, Black, Sky, Whisper and Slate.  I used the Embossed Metal Badge Buttons from the Proplayer assortment.  To create the little sparkle for the siren I used the Ruby Shimmer Trim.  The clouds were stamped using the clouds from a retired stamp set Now Departing B1309.

Your next stop on our Everything ABC’S blog Hop is JOY MCHARGUE- STUDIOWOW.
