We all love a party and this week at STEALS.com we are having a doozie.  To celebrate BabySteals 5th birthday, we used Graphic 45′s Little Darlings Collection to help start the festivities.  Our Monday Craft Madness Theme this week is:

Babies!

Create something either with a baby theme, for a baby, or a layout with a photo of when you were a baby.

Now when having a birthday celebration we need to start with invitations and decorations.  Check out the decorations the party!

I created a banner to celebrate this awesome milestone.  I can’t believe BabySteals is already 5 years old!

The invitations to the party are simple, but with a little added extra.  Don’t be afraid to have each of your hand made invitations a little different.  This way you can use up your stickers and embellishments and save a little money at the same time.

My favorite item is the party favors.  While crafting, I asked my daughter (who doesn’t scrapbook ) to help she kept coming up with crazy ideas.  ”How about we just put all of these things in a pile and tie a bow around it all” was her best advice.  Well while she was playing with the Fancy Pants Chipboard Banner, we came up with creating some party favor holders.  I am kind of in love.
