My Example of My Element Baby Book:


My element's name is Neon Nicolas and his nickname is Ne. His place of birth was in London, England. Neon Nicolas was born in 1898 with a birth weight of 20.18 amu and a height of 10 inches tall. His race is Noble Gases and his gender is gas. His attending physician was the amazing Sir William Ramsay. His personality consists of getting so mad that his boiling point is at -246.1 °C. His melting point is at -248.6 °C.

This is to certify that

Birth Weight: ________    Birth Height: _________     Race: _______
Gender: ________   Nickname: __________    

Was born in the year of _____
in the country of _______.

Physician in attendance was ___________
Signature of Parent: ___________


2 Ramsay Road

Helium is the father, Argon is the mother, Krypton is the oldest brother, Xenon is the oldest sister, Radon is the youngest daughter and Neon is the baby brother of the family.

When my element Neon grows up he will have a bright future ahead of him because he will light up advertising signs. Neon will end up marrying Helium and together they will combine to to make helium-neon lasers. He will move away from England where he was born and move to las vegas where he can make it shine. He will be traveling from New York to Las Vegas back and forth because Times Squares also needs him a lot.

Hey Guys, I made this quick video to show you guys how my brothers green theme birthday party turned out. This was Tumblr and Pinterest inspired. I made the invitations by using an online website that lets you customize your own party invitations by using some of their templates. I printed them out and decided to put them inside a clear balloon that had confetti inside it. It thought this was a fun and creative way to send out invitations since the guest got to pop the balloon to reveal the invitation.

Some of the materials were from amazon and party city. Most of the decorations were hand made (DIY). I also bought some decorations from the dollar store/99 cent store. For example the signs were from the dollar store as well as the balloons. I went the day of the party in the morning to buy the green helium balloons to the dollar store. 

The happy birthday and table cloths were also from the dollar store.

There was a tostilocos and birthday presents table as well. The clear balloons on the window had green confetti inside but you could barely see it.

We bought a long role of green table cloths but ran out of them very fast. The lime green balloons hanging from the top were from party city but they started to randomly pop out of no where so I couldn't recommend them.

 I bought green cups from the dollar store and wrote out my brothers name on the fence.

We also had bonfire area for the night were the little kids got to make s'mores.

My cousin was the one who painted one of the logs and drew a fire flame on it.

This party banner was from amazon and we hanged it on a fence.

I made these signs to put on the waters so the guest new which flavors they were.

I made these cardboard letters with paper and styrofoam paper from the dollar store.

Watch the video I made on youtube :D

        I found this amazing website that used to be called AMZ Review Trader but is now called VIPON. In this website you were able to get free things from Amazon in return for a review. If you had Amazon Prime this made it super efficient and completely free since you didn't have to pay for shipping. 
        Well, recently Amazon changed their rules and policies and now sellers can't demand a review from their costumers in return for a free product.  This meant that the purpose of this amazing website that connected sellers with reviewers was not going to work any longer, so AMZ Review Trader decided to switch their name and website style to Vipon. Now, sellers can still give costumers free products but they can't demand a review in return. This caused many sellers to leave and no longer use the website, so reviewers like myself were not getting any more products to review. 
          I decided to make one last video of some of the things I was able to get before the new rules and policies changed. I no longer use the website but it used to work perfectly. All the products shown in my video will be listed down below.

Wrapping Present Banner

I made this super cute and simple wrapping present banner with the name of the person for who it was. For the name tag I just wrote Happy Christmas on one side and from who it was on the other. I could of also done it the other way around and written Happy Christmas on the banner and for who it was for on one side of the name tag and keep the name of who was it from on the other. 

For the top bow I got the idea from FabDIY  

Black Ribbon Tie

Cute way to tie two christmas presents together. The black ribbon gives it a "Dark Christmas" sensation which I love.
