Ooops! You need a gift, too!?!

So I was trying to sleep off the cold that hit the moment I finished the Luau cake, when Madison called.  She had been picked up for the sleep-over birthday party and had forgotten to take her sleeping bag, pillow, blanket, toothbrush...are you wondering what she did take?  The last thing sent me flying out of bed.  "Mom, can you bring that flower card, too?"  I suddenly realized that while I was busy making the invitations and the cake, I completely forgot the present!  Aaaahhh!  I so didn't feel up to it, but away I went.

Remembering this from last month...
I started on this...
It took about an hour, start to finish.  Print out the name, cut out the letters, grab some wood, cut off the ends.  Paint black...hold in front of the fan 'til dry...cough, cough.  Paint front of fan..sneeze. 
Hold cardstock stencil on top of sign and dab, dab, dab that paint.  Plug in the glue gun.  Leave stenciling to dry while you run around trying to find those @(&%!#* rhinestones....cough.  Sand the whole front...wipe...Glue.

Vwalahhhha!  -I SO don't know how to spell that-
Rachel is decorating her room with bright colors and leaning towards the Hawaiian theme there too.  Hopefully this fits the bill.
Now, back to bed :0]
