Quickie Birthday Treats

Morning friends!  Thank you so much for Abie's birthday wishes yesterday.  She is so funny, she wanted to cook dinner for us last night.  She's been talking about it for weeks.  We're going to take her out this weekend since she cooked last night, plus we had nasty icky weather and once we got home we were NOT getting back out! 

I sent treats to school with her yesterday.  Every year I've done something homemade.  Our school is not one of  those that has the no homemade rule.  At least not yet :)  But this year I just couldn't do it, not enough time.  So here's what we came up with...

I bought the little buckets at Dollar tree, three in a package for $1.  Then I bought fruit snacks at Target and took them out of their original packaging and dumped them into pretty cellophane bags, tied up with twine.  I finished each bucket off with a bamboo stick topped with a lime green birthday hat which I ran through the Cuttlebug and glued a puffy ball on top.  Abie was a huge help with this project, we had quite the assembly line going :)

That's it for me today.  Hope you have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by!!!!
