Sunday was my husband's birthday. He entered a new decade: the 60's. That sounds old, but he is still young at heart & very active. We had a family dinner. Of course one can't have a party without a banner. Using my Wishblade I cut triangles out of  Scarlet Jewel cs &  My Mind's Eye: Playground Stripes.  The letters were cut using Lemon Tart cs.

Since I have two young granddaughters, they love to wear party hats. I made these.

Somehow, I was successful enlarging a black & white high school  picture from his senior year. Once I printed it out, I used a template to make the hat.  The little pom pom is made from some silver ribbon, I had in my stash.

I wasn't sure how my husband would react to the party hat, but he loved it.  So did everyone else in the family.

Last but not least, a party needs goodie bags. This is what I came up with.

I used the same pattern paper on the banner.  I stamped the # 60 using Tim Holts's distressed ink: Peeled Paint.  A close up shot.

This is what was inside the bags.

Thanks for stopping by.
