Birthday Surprise…

We have just returned from a trip to St. Petersburg where we celebrated one of the “littles” birthday.  Lyla turned seven on April 26th and her mom wanted to surprise her with a ‘big girl’ room.  Well…that’s right up my alley so we started conspiring how we could get her out of the house and transform her room before the big Soccer Birthday Party.

You might think I’m just being a braggy g’mom, but this post is really SU! related.  My daughter-in-love found some ideas she liked on Pinterest and asked if I could help her with them.  Here is a picture of Lyla as soon as her dad uncovered her eyes and she walked into her room…


She was really surprised.  Little bro’ not so happy, but he will probably be due for a room upgrade soon.  But here is the SU! part I wanted to show you…


She loves butterflies so she was thrilled with the wall.  They were all made with the Bigz Beautiful Butterfly Die which I think is being discontinued.  And even though the flower globes hanging in the corner from fishing line are not SU! related, they were on Pinterest and we thought “what an easy project”.  Wrong!  My goodness those things took forever.  We were up til midnight two nights before the party trying to finish those buggers.  They do, however, add just the right reason for the butterflies to be traveling up the wall.

Hope you liked seeing a little different post.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”A grandparent is a parent with more sleep, less rules and more cookies.”

Get Inky…Be Happy!
