The birthday girl's treat boxes.

Happy 10th birthday to my sweet Abie girl.  I can't believe she's 10.  Ten.  A decade.  Mike and I have a ten year old.  Crap.  That's crazy.  She is so sweet, funny, smart, cute, amazing and kind.  I love her.  She is beautiful on the inside and I am overjoyed at the choices she is making with her life.  I am so proud to be her mom.

Bless her heart, she got up this morning, put on her brand new outfit, fixed her hair, we painted her nails last night.  She gets on the bus and...threw up.  Ugh.  Isn't that the way sometimes?  I must say, she's recovering nicely, in bed right now.  We'll see how the day goes.  Hopefully it's just a 24 hour thing.

Her party is tomorrow and these are the treat boxes for the girls.

I bought the zebra take out boxes and tags at Hobby Lobby.

I embellished the tag just a little bit.  My favorite part is it white mailing label that I stamped birthday candles on and then die cut.  It was already sticky on the back which made it super easy to peel and stick right on the tag!  I added each girls initial with a black foam Thicker.

We're taking it easy tonight, here at home and then tomorrow afternoon is the beginning of Abie's party.  Dinner out, bowling and then a sleepover.  Hoping to have a 10 year old at 100% so she can enjoy it.  If not, we'll have to reschedule :)

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'll see you soon.  Enjoy your Friday and your weekend!
