Happy Birthday Baby Girl!

Okay - so my goal of posting once a week just kind of flew right out of the window this month. It seems like we have been on the go since the beginning of the month and I am just now getting a break. What have we been up to? Well first we enjoyed a week away from home. Just us in a cabin out in the woods - no internet or cable tv. (Good news-it allowed me some time to make a few cards.) Next, after 5 months of looking for work I am happy to say I am back in the world of employment. I have been at my new job for two weeks and I love it. Also, my daughter started 11th grade and just had her birthday. So needless to say it has been a BUSY month for us around here.

This is the card I gave to my daughter for her birthday.  She loved the pink glitter frosting on the cupcake.
Stamps-The Stamps of Life
Ink, Cardstock & Adhesive Foam Squares-Close to My Heart
Blue Stripe paper & pink glitter paper-DCWV
Multi Stripe paper-MME

I promise not to wait so long for the next post.

Comments are welcomed.  :)

August Alreay?

I got the newspaper today and it was flooded with back to school sales. Ahh back to school, a time for parents to rejoice! My daughter is older and I kind of miss stocking up on crayons, colored pencils and glue. Now we just get to buy boring paper and pens. August is also important around here since my daughter's birthday is at the end of the month. Thus the birthday count down is on. She will be 17. How in the heck did that happen. I swear I only blinked once. I still remember her 1st day of kindergarten like it was yesterday and now she will be starting her junior year. She is still deciding what type of party she wanted this year. Last year for her sweet 16 she wanted a day at the mall with her friends and then dinner and a movie. I went through my photos and found pics of her invites so thought I would share them with all of you.

Supplies: My Minds Eye-Paper, CTMH-Stamps, Ink, Ribbon & Fibers, Cricut-Mini Monograms (scallop circle), Oriental Trading-Purse cards & Pop Rock Candy.
