A candy party for Sophie....

I had such a nice day yesterday! My little friend Sophie was having her birthday party and I was going to help her and her friends celebrate :) Sophie decided that she wanted to have a candy themed party this year, and that's exactly what she got! We jammed as many sparkly, girly, and candy themed activities, crafts and games into 2 hours as we possibly could! 

We made the cutest and extremely blinged out magnets. Those girls seriously appreciate the rhinestones ;) We played some fun and silly games, and made candy kabobs, and little marshmallow cupcake treats which I loved!

After all the crafting and giggling, the girls enjoyed red velvet cupcakes with the yummiest cream cheese frosting you've ever tasted (courteosy of Mama Em). I think I might need to "borrow" her recipe :)

Here's a few pics from our afternoon....

Thanks so much to Emily and Sophie for having me! Hope you have a Happy Birthday Miss Sophie!

Now Seeking Guest Bloggers...

I love sharing ideas. One of my favorite things to do is to search the Internet for inspiring and creative things. It's such a great moment when a photo you see or a party idea you read about sparks other ideas for you. I've often created entire parties, or theme camps for my Brownies based on inspiration from a photo, or a little blurb I've read somewhere. My love for inspiration and sharing of ideas is where this little idea comes from.

I thought it would be kinda fun to have a few Guest Bloggers on my site! I know so many of you have tons of great ideas to share! Maybe you have a no fail best ever party recipe, or maybe you love photography, and want to share your inspiring pics, maybe you're the party queen, and set a table fit one! Whatever your passion, if you think our readers, would love to hear about it, then we'd love to hear from you! Posting on our blog might be a one time deal for you, or maybe you'd like to do it a bit more regularily. If you've got something you want to share, please let us know!

Just for fun...

I saw this cute little picture on Pintrest (my newest obsession) ;) and thought it was just plain lovely. So many times we find ourselves swept away with life's little to do lists, and sometimes while completing that list, we don't get to see our loved ones as much as we'd like. I know I've said it before, but I really am truly blessed with all the fantastic people I have in my life. I love them all. This little pic just reminded me that no matter what comes up and even if we don't get to see each other as much as we'd like, we're all still here, and always will be :)

Happy Tuesday All!
Tam xoxo
