Costume party preparation.. in pictures

Like promised, i will post here some of the things i did for the costume party, the crafting part ;)

The invites..

The costume of Tinkerbell , which I sewed after making a pattern using two layers of fabrics , one of which filled the whole house with glitter :P
The wig was made using an elastic band and yellow wool
( the Mario costume was made by Mario's talented mom , mashalla great job )

The favors.. Made with felts and embroidered with black

The favor boxes.. made from an online pattern for the box, the tag was stamped using black ink

The cupcakes...

All the decoration was made easily using a few colors of crepe paper.. And lots of fun and love

All the balloons ended up in the kiddo's room after the party

We had a good time preparing for that evening , and cleaning up afterwords , especially after all the pop up metallic paper shreds we had

We then traveled to Jeddah to attend my friend's wedding, it was a very nice trip and a very good wedding mashalla, may Allah keep them happily ever after.
I said good bye to my friend who is traveling to Canada with her family, and I visited with my other friend in Jeddah and talked about the good old days.

My sisters were there too, both of them since I very long time , it was great spending time with them bonding , and I enjoyed every minute of it with dad and their mom and cats too..

They had two mashalla, but only one was a cutey , the kid loved it so much and we spent the evening cuddling it.

Ok, hmmm then what.. I bought lot's of new stuff for the home, after it all came in the place look more messy than before lol But I need to work a bit on re arranging the furniture and then on decorating inshalla.

Dad dearest got me a Blackberry, I love it so far..

And my cousin celebrated his boy's 7th birthday mashalla, it was a great party mashalla his mom is a very talented lady and we had a lot of fun :)

Oh and we went to bahrain twice, and watched lot's of movies, I loved inception, eclipse and the sorcceror's apprentice.. good ones :)
