June is always a busy time in our household. With two young girls there are always year end activities and parties to attend.  And at our house there are birthdays to celebrate. I'm happy to report that both parties were a success. Here are a few photos of the highlights.

First for my Rebekah, I made these little cuties for her to take to school for her classmates.  They were time consuming to make but easy and well worth it. They got rave reviews. I found the instructions on Pinterest if you are looking for the details.

Rebekah was turning 11 and wanted to celebrate by having a few friends over for a sleepover.  But every birthday requires cake and her dream cake this year was to look like a fish bowl.  So here is my attempt at the fish bowl cake. 

With that party over I then concentrated on Emilia's 9th birthday party.  She is an aspiring veterinarian so had her heart set on a pet themed party.  I contacted our local pet store to arrange for them to bring over some cute and cuddly animals. So all that was left to do was loot bags and a cake. 

For the loot bags I was happy to have Emilia help me make these cute and simple bags. 

Who wants a bag of sugar at the end of a birthday party? Not us.  So instead I found these cute Webkinz puppies at our local dollar store. What nine year old girl wouldn't want to adopt him?

The party was a busy one so I wasn't able to take many pictures of the craft.  Although a little tricky to assemble the fastener at the top, these birds in cages were a big success. Another pet to take home!

For this party the birthday girl had her heart set on a cake in the shape of a cat.  
 So this is what I came up with.  So what do you think? Not too bad eh?

Both parties are over and it's time to take a breather. 
Looking forward to a great summer with my girls.
