Happy Birthday Margie!

Jarrod and I had a birthday dinner party for his mom's birthday this past Saturday. It was the first party we have hosted in our new house. We had a fun time! On the menu: Beef Enchiladas, Chicken Enchiladas, Stuffed Bell Peppers, Mexican Layered Salad, Chips & Dip. . . .and for Dessert, a Oreo Cookie Torte!
The cake didn't turn out as pretty as the one in the cookbook looked, I tried to hide my mess ups by decorating it with Oreo's! Even though it didn't look so great it was really yummy!

As a present I made Margie personalized notecards, enclosure cards and address labels and packaged it all in a custom decorated paint can.

I think it turned out pretty cute, considering it was my first try at decorating a paint can!
