Time to link up for the Birthday Party Challenge

Welcome back to the CSI Project! I am happy to say it is Party time!

This week has been all about birthday parties.We have had some great tutorials as well and I am amazed at the talent out there.

It was a great week and I can honestly say I am loving planning parties even more!

This week I have been busy myself planning a Lorax Movie Premier party for my kids and our friends. It has been so fun and I can’t wait to show you the pictures. Here is a sneak peek from my phone.

I made a direction sign for all of the places in the book, such as  “Street of the Lifted Lorax”, “Once-Ler House”, “Pipe  House” and one that says, “Get your sneeds.”

I just used wood and wood burned the words, then painted. I put all of that in a flower pot so it stands up. Also, in the picture you can see the Banner I made. I copied the pages from the book and then glued them on poster board so they would be sturdier. It is so cute!

I also have a fun Once-Ler game planned for the kids and snacks that are Lorax themed. We are having, Thneed Tacos for dinner too.

Are you going to see the Lorax? We are and we are so ready!

Ok, Let’s recap the week before we party!

First, we had a wonderful Birthday Memory Board tutorial from A Turtle’s Life for Me.

Then, we had a Universal Birthday banner from Lolly Jane.

Finally, we had tutorial of  tea party placecards from Under the Moon. These are so pretty!

You’ll find the linkup for this week’s challenge at the end of this post, following the challenge rules. This challenge begins at 10 pm(MST) Wednesday, February 29th, and ends at noon (MST) Friday, March 2nd .

1. All entries for this challenge need to incorporate the challenge’s theme. We are not simply a linky party. We have a specific theme for each week. All submissions are competing to be the judge’s top pick. If your project does not incorporate the theme we will have to remove it.

3. The CSI Project button must be in your blog post. HERE are the buttons. This makes it easy for other people to come over and join in the challenge if they like – and for us to know that we have the correct entry in the challenge when we’re judging. And if you use an older post, please update it so it’s current. If you don’t want to update it, please add the button to that post and to the sidebar for the week of the contest. Thanks!

4. The project you submit must be your own project and something you have made. (It can be inspired by something someone else has done, but it must be your creation.)

5. We ask that you are a CSI follower or subscriber to win the prizes. The more followers the site has — the more giveaways we are able to host
