Ryan's 4th Birthday

We celebrated Ryan's 4th birthday way back in July with a robot themed birthday party. We collected lots of recyclable junk like bottle caps, lids, Chinese take-out handles, cans, aluminum pull tabs, and popsicle sticks for the kids to use to create their very own robots.

So, what started out looking like this....



Turned out looking like this....
[Note: man in background, is NOT a robot, but my father-in-law] :)

Mark made a robot pinata out of cereal and other food boxes.


And no robot party would be complete without the robot cake, which was fun to make and decorate....


Happy Birthday, little man! I can't believe you're 4 already!!
Speaking of birthdays, here's a scrapbook layout that I just finished about Ryan's 3rd birthday...



I was inspired to do the "party" banner from Chrispea's post and challenge. You still have until next Monday to try one on your own and post it to the Ally Scraps forum and it's a great way to use up some of those scraps I'm sure you've got laying around.

Oh my gosh Amy you are so creative! When it comes time to plan Colin's birthday party I'm so going to you for advice!

Very cute LO, I love the banner and the numbers around the LO's.

That layout is adorable!! It really turned out great. Did you get the Ally Scraps link to work yet? Did you sign up on the message board? Try that if you haven't and then just add the link if you can.
