As you all know, Kenzie just turned 8. It's amazing to me that she is so big already. Well I decided that since I am making changes, one of them is that I am beginning to blog on a regular basis again. In order to do this, I need to be sure I share with my friends more often. I am starting with the most recent event that has happened in our family. We had Mackenzie's birthday party last weekend at Yaya and Pappy's house. As normal, I made her cake for her after she decided the theme. As you can see, she decided that Tinkerbell was what she wanted for her party, so I made her a cute little cake for the party. Complete with her friends! She loved it! I have to say I was highly satisfied with how it came out! The purple and green were perfect and then adding a frame to add some spice to it from Corel was just perfect!
First thing Saturday morning, the Tinkerbell jumper arrived and the kids were totally game for it. Kevin got to the party early and played in the jumper with Maddie, Kenzie and Shelby. They had a blast! They were even happy to give me a pic of them all!
I put a poster on the wall so if we got time and wanted to do pics with Tinkerbell, it would be an option. I did a test pic with my friend Kevin. I wasn't totally pleased with the way they came out so some of them I did edit, but this one was pretty cool.
Kenzie's friend Abby from school came to her party. I didn't like the way the pic turned out for tinkerbell, so I simply extracted her from the picture, then added a background from Wee Faerie and then her name down the side. I also added a soft focus and then blended her into the background a little for a great picture of her! Loved it!For present time, Kenzie was so excited to open her present from Deb, Kevin, and Kevin. She has slept with her Tinkerbell Snuggie every night since! She got so many fun presents and couldn't say thank you enough!As the party winded down, I took the tulle I had on the back of one of the barstools off and hung it around Pappy's neck. He is such a good sport!!!
All in all it was a great party. We had a light rain all day, but that didn't stop the kids from playing in the jumper!!! And there you have it! The birthday party in a quick summary.
