2: While at Clix Photo Studio, waiting for Josh to take his Senior pictures, I saw an album on the table with girls having a Birthday Party at Clix. The package included, the Birthday Girls' own photo shoot prior to the actual party. When the party happens, each of the girls at the party also get their own photo shoot, to be a model. This gave mommy a wonderful idea for an exciting 11th Birthday Party for Marissa! Part 1 of Marissa's Party, consisted of her own private photo shoot.. Mommy decided to go all out for this Birthday Party and make it a very memorable one. We got some beautiful dresses, shoes, went and had your hair done professionally, added your makeup and accessories worthy of a "Glamorous" Model for her photo shoot.. TThis was a 2 part Birthday Party. - Part 1/Day1, the girls came to Marissa's home for 2 - 3 hours and each girl was able to try on all the dresses they wanted, pick one out to wear for the actual day of the party! Each girl was fitted to that dress (for alterations later). Then each girl was able to pick out a pair of shoes, boas, a pair of glam sunglasses, and all the accessories they chose. We ended up running out of time all day, with the groups of girls. But it was fun watching all the girls go crazy with excitement while picking out their dresses, shoes, gloves, boas, sunglasses, and other accessories. Their accessories were placed in a bag, marked with their names and saved for the actual Party day!
3: Part 2/Day 2 - The Actual Birthday Party! The girls each had assigned times to arrive at Shelly's Hair Design; there the girls got their hair "Up-Do'ed" by Shelly, make-up done by Samantha, Aunt Lory, or mommy, then sparkly hair pieces/accessories added to their "Up-Do's" (Hair) by Samantha, Aunt Lory, or mommy. Then their girls got their shoes, dresses and accessories on that they picked out on Day 1. After everyone was "Glamorous", we went outside for pictures and waited for the Limo to arrive. (It was icy, snowy & very cold outside) Brrr. . . Once in Limo, all the girls, plus Aunt Lory (adult) drove to Clix Photo Studio, taking the scenic route, so mommy, Samantha and other helpers (Amanda, and Milan) could help set up tables, and decorations at Clix. However, the Limo got their first!; So we did all the setting up while you girls were coming out of the Limo and coming into the Studio. We worked fast and it was done within minutes! So Beautiful, like the girls. Dad and Armand arrived later with Beautiful Cupcakes (Red Velvet, was your favorite) were a hit! Then the Party started, with each of the girls getting their "Photo Shoot", and then walking the Red Carpet RunWay! So cute! Then followed by eating and drinking! Party of course ran over a bit! All the girls had a great time, and looked Beautiful! Each girl wore their dresses and accessories home, so mom's took take pictures, and brought back the dresses later to our home. Super Party! All the girls had a great time, and mom's loved it too!

After their hair was styled, they got their make up done, sparkly hair accessories, and hair glitter done by Samantha, Aunt Lory and mommy. Then it was off to change into their dresses, put on their shoes, put on all their accessories, and then add their own lip gloss. While the "Finished" girls waited (For the rest of the girls to get done) each girl made their own beaded bracelet and chatted amongst themselves. When all the girls were finished being glamorous, mom's were invited back to take pictures of their daughters and watch the girls get into the limo! Then off the girls went in the Limo to Clix Photo Studio!
