You're invited...

because tomorrow is Isiah's first birthday party! :D
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by on this great Friday.
Our little guy is turning one! As I said before, if we were back home in Hawaii, we'd be setting up a huge tent for a pa'ina (party). It would start out as inviting the aunties and uncles, and then turn into an all out, all day event with 100+ people! haha! Or I could be one of those moms who plan a 300+ guest luau. Yes, you read that right, and complete with matching shirts for the entire family.
Nevertheless, I am sooo happy to be announcing his bday here with you all! Here's a card I made that I'll throw in his scrapbook with a picture of him and his cupcake (cupcake tomorrow, real cake on Sunday when oldest DS gets back from a trip).

Isn't this doggy adorable? He's not sure what he's doing. I am sure Izzy will have that same expression tomorrow even though we've been showing him how to blow. :D The image is from The Digi Shack and is just the sweetest thing. I love his cartoon eyes, very expressive and confused. haha! I colored in his party hat to match the scrap DP in my drawer. It was the perfect size as I wanted to do a fun shaped card. The ribbon was just one long scrap piece that I looped repeatedly and then adhered in between the DP and the cardstock.

For my week finale picture of Izzy, I decided to post this one:
He is soooo well loved in our household. The kids literally fight over who gets to watch him when I'm making dinner. This is our Nala holding him at the top of a slide at a nearby park. (He loves pulling on her hair because she says, "choo choo!" when he does it. :D ) His expression was sooo funny, he was about to go down for the second time and was anticipating the adrenalin rush.
As I said yesterday, all parties have goody bags, right? So to celebrate my baby's 1st bday, I am giving away party favors to one lucky guest! All you have to do is leave a comment today, I will let Izzy pick a number from a party hat after he blows out his candle. I will announce the winner on Monday. Here's a picture of the treats:

I went with an all boy theme, haha!
Karen Foster Dinosaur embellishments
Adirondack dabber
stonewashed Bazzill oversized brads
Prismacolor premiere silver pen
baby blue bear ribbon
Jolee's hand and foot prints embelli
Reminisce bday transfers
Mini Marks Show & Tell rub ons
Thank you all for stopping in today, I hope you have a great Friday and an even more wonderful weekend! *Love and Aloha*

This card is so cute!!! I am so dreading Tucker's 2nd birthday for some reason I like them little and each year they get older it makes me sad because they grow up so fast!!!

I am glad you had a wonderful Birthday Celebration for your baby!!!
