I am looking for ideas for an 11 year old girl's party, something cheap and super. Maybe some sleepover ideas.

I did a Hawaiian spa party for my daughter. I went to Dollar Tree and got handbags and filled them with spa stuff like soaps and lotions. The girls had fun giving each pedicures and manicures. (03/30/2010)
How about getting some inexpensive beading kits and let them make their own jewelry?
For my daughter's 10th birthday we did a sleepover party with five or six other girls who brought sleeping bags (if they had them). They had a pizza dinner. (You could let them help make their own by providing different toppings.)
For their activity, I bought some inexpensive white T-shirts and let them decorate them with fabric paints, rhinestones, sparkly strings, etc. (You need to put a piece of cardboard inside the T-shirt to provide stability and prevent the paints from seeping through.
You can buy pre-cut ones at a fabric/craft store or make your own. The girls spread out on my tile floor and went to work. They had a blast! We let them dry over night. If they aren't completely dry, just send them home with the cardboard still inside. This makes for a very fun and memorable birthday. (03/31/2010)
We did this at my daughter's party last year. I bought some small foam photo albums at Hobby Lobby(or Michael's or any craft shop) along with foam letters, decorations, and sticker sayings (best friends, etc.). I took pictures all night of the girls (playing outside, opening presents, making pizzas, hanging out etc.) with a digital camera, downloaded them and printed them (several sheets for all girls). The girls then placed them in their albums and decorated. They had a blast! (04/03/2010)
If she likes science you could always make slime,
(did it once really fun!)
Dress-up and make a slideshow of them on your phone (if have one.) Also cooking,soccer,scavenger hunt, and Payday is a really fun board game. Twister is also a great
Movies- "Night at the Museum" 1,2 or 3 (all good) or "Star Wars." Wait! also "My neighbor Totoro" is good for anyone.
Food-Pizza,Sushi or Pasta is all good.
Have a great time!!!
