Surprise Party!

My BFF, Karlee, is moving away from me in 3 short weeks!!! I decided to throw her a surprise going away party with just the girls. We had a blast!!!! We had lots of yummy goodies, girl talk (which I won't be sharing!), fun in the Jacuzzi, eating very HIGH CALORIE popcorn, singing American Idol WII, taking lots of pictures, and watching a chick flick. Did I mention I had a BLAST??? Here are the highlights.

Yes, of course my Cricut was involved!!!

Karlee is showing off my cute banner I made for her using Hello Kitty Font Cartridge.

Love my Karlee!!!

Look at all the yummy food!!!  I made lots of chocolate covered fruit which was DELICIOUS!!  I took the night off from counting my WW points.  Bad Robyn!!

I made this tiny little purses as party favors using Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge and they were cut out at 3 inches.  They were super SMALL and soooo cute!!!


  1. I love the little purses! Is there any way to make something suitable for little boys too using the Tags cart? So-o-o-o-o glad all of you had a good time.

  2. So sorry you are losing such a good friend. Is Karlee moving too far for you to get together once in awhile? Looks like you had a great time. Nancy

  3. So sorry your best friend is moving away!
    It looks like a fun party!
    Anonymous #1...I think you could use TBBM cart for boys. There are bags that look less like purses that you could use boy colors for and attach something like a star instead of a flower, or maybe a car or frog or turtle...

  4. Robyn these are so cute! What did you put in it? A nugget or mini snickers? I can't tell what size treat is in there, but I know I have to try this. I don't have TBBM yet, just completed an order for 6 and it didn't make the cut. Now I wish it had! I am hoping one of my other carts will have something similar to use!

  5. ROBYN! What a sweet friend you are. I love that banner, the food and those purses. TBBM is my true love! I love the colors you used. What a fun party!!

  6. WOW you are just too cool! Tricia

  7. Looks like you gals had a wonderful time. Love the decorations and puruses.
