It was a surprise...

This year Hadley really wanted a surprise birthday party! I thought that was such a funny request for a soon to be 6 yr old! We always have family birthday parties, and I knew she really wanted one with her friends & SIX seemed like a good age for a friend party!

I made favor bags, so I'll add these to the Moxie gift wrap challenge!





I used more of that Girls' paperie paper & stamped each girls' initial with CTMH stamps.

Inside were some random goodies, as well as a headband I'd made & these flowers:

I used PTI's button set & dies & packaged them in clear cello bags- so I'll add these to the Moxie little gifts challenge! that's it for the craftiness- the rest of this post is about the surprise!

She went for a date with her Daddy so I could get to the skating rink & set up-

She was VERY surprised- of course my pics are blurry- but she had a huge smile when she realized what was going on!


And we had a great afternoon of skating with her cousins & several great friends!


She even loved being in the spotlight for the birthday song & the hokey pokey!!!



So glad we could give you this fun surprise, Hadley! We love you to bits!
