As many of you know, I will be the big 4-0 this year!  But I'm not the first one of my friends to enter this new decade!  My best friend celebrated her birthday this week, and the festivities began on Saturday with her surprise Forty-Licious scavenger hunt and after party!  I worked with three of her closest friends to plan a party she will not soon forget!  Above are the thank you cards I made for her as part of her gift.  The zebra print blank note cards are from Staples.  The image is an Inkadinkado stamps and the cool paper clip are from Michaels' Recollections line.

The invitations were created by my crafty friend, Michelle B., of Evermore Card Creations.  She not only creates beautifully stamped and hand-colored cards but she does altered art and is a digital graphics goddess as well!  Here are the tickets the guests received to attend this V.I.P. event!

Michelle also created matching backstage passes for our guests to wear in lanyards.  If you would like to see more of Michelle's work visit her blog HERE or her etsy shop HERE.

The group, sporting matching tour t-shirts, surprised the birthday girl at a local restaurant then divided into two teams to begin the hunt!  Departing in the "tour buses", each team then had to provide video documentation of the tasks completed.  Whether it was singing the Oscar Mayer song with a mouth full of Bubbalicious, miming in front of Walmart, or doing the hokey pokey in the mall food court, the ladies had quite the interesting evening!

 When the teams were done they returned to the V.I.P. venue for the after party!  No party is complete without delicious appetizers, yummy drinks, decadent sweets- including a forty-licious cake, swag bags, and compilation CDs!

There was even some, ahem, "entertainment" scheduled for the evening, but I can't show photos of that here!  lol  It was an amazing night and I think the birthday girl was a little over-whelmed by her rock star treatment!  Personally, I can't think of anyone who deserves it more!  Happy 40th!
