Friends Rock -- Birthday Party

So this past weekend I went to my cousin Sarah's MYO (Make-Your-Own) Sleepover.  She invited me so I decided that I would demonstrate a fun and girly 8x10 page using Stampin' Up's set Friends Rock. I didn't know what to expect with 5-eight and nine year olds, but we sure did have a blast! And I was soooo surprised to hear that a couple of the girls' mom's used Stampin' Up! Products! (And don't worry, I sent those girls home with the lovely 2009 Holiday Mini Catalog :))  Anyway, I came up with an easy and very basic layout for the girls to use, but of course they did their own thing! :) We added a black frame
(big enough to fit the 8x10) and some fun pictures (throughout the night) to use, and the girls loved it! They now have a keepsake they each created from Sarah's 9th Birthday MYO Sleepover!
