The challenge theme at THE PAPER PLUNGE  is April Showers.  I have some fun ideas for a party centered on Dr. Seuss!  I can't take credit for the all the ideas cuz the party was done last week by my daughter in law!  Here is the fun day!

The Lorax Sour Cream Treat Containers

There were Thing 1 and Thing 2 and not just a few!
I also saw Horton who hears a WHO!
The Lorax arrived to "speak for the trees".
There were treats galore "oh my, oh me!"

The Cat in the Hat shared a lot about that,
Then Sam I am brought green eggs & ham!

Sally & Ted were at the window to greet,
The buffet was filled with drinks & sweets.

You could color or draw, paint or slide.
Mold with play dough
or take a pose and say HI!

In the  bathroom was one fish or two.
I may have saw a red fish and a blue.

At the end of the day was a bag of fun,
and a hug good bye, enough said, well done!

My daughter in law- Alyssa has a delightful spark for throwing a party for the kids. Her theme was Dr. Seuss. There were around 20 little ones and many parents stayed to enjoy the day (and a beer!).  I didn't get permission to share all the kids pictures so I will stick to posting Addy & Harrison's.

I was tickled to make the Lorax sour cream styled treat container with an orange tootsie pop inside and the green eggs and ham pretzel bites!  Alyssa takes credit for the rest of the spread!  Her artwork and the help of her sister in law with the photo booth area were amazing!

Join us at THE PAPER PLUNGE  for some more April Shower ideas!

I've been crocheting dish cloths.  I only know basic crochet stitches, and review how to do them by watching youtube videos! I don't know how to read a pattern, so videos work for me!  After collecting a small stash, I decide to share them, hence the gift tag to go with them!  This one is quick and you can customize it to compliment any gift. Get your Stampin'  Markers or Blender Pens to color in the tulips! Love is Kindness is a single stamp that is available only on a wood block in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  

Tip:  I made a double tag and tied them together with a Linen Thread Bow and wrote a note on the inside.

Stamp Set:  Love is Kindness
Ink:  Momento Black, Old Olive & Rich Razzleberry Markers
Card Stock:  Whisper White
And More:  Linen Thread, Angle Tag Topper

Ready for Spring?  These flowers are!  The Flower Patch Stamp Set has Framelits that cut out the fussy cutting for you!  BUT- I did fussy cut the center layers of the large Zennia flower.  The background was added using the Striped Stencil and White Craft Ink. I applied it with a sponge dauber.
