A month ago (HOLY COW–where did April go?!) I had a party for Kyle’s 7th birthday. It was Muppet-themed and I scoured the internet (ok, Pinterest) for cute ideas to go with our Muppet theme. I found a ton of cool things from and the directions for making this wonderful Kermit pinata from Alicia Policia‘s blog. I followed the directions mostly to the letter, except I made the sides and back flatter than she did on hers. It took me about 25 hours to do this from start to finish, but I love, love, LOVE how it came out, and it can be used again and again! Here is a page I scrapped one evening for my favorite one-hour Speed Scrap at DSP. I just adore these photos, and the party really was spectacular (even if only one kid from Kyle’s class came–he was perfect guest and there were lots of family there to party it up and appreciate my efforts).
