Birthday Fun!

Thank you for ALL of the birthday wishes yesterday! I appreciate them very much! I have some photos to share with you!


I wanted to show you a photo of me in my new t-shirt. I bought myself a birthday present at Archiver's on Monday. It's a Rusty Pickle shirt, and it says "Scrap Addict". Around the circle, it says, "Caution: Scrapbooking may be addictive and hazardous to your pocketbook" Well, isn't that the truth? Princess posed with me!


I got a gorgeous card from Deb at Stampin' On the Mountain. Deb is so sweet and kind, and I'm so happy that she's one of my blogging friends! Deb put some scallop die cut stamped images plus some Primas inside the card. How sweet! I love the image on the card, and the ribbon is so pretty! Thank you so much Deb!


My girls made cards for me all by themselves. My husband and I did not help them at all. This card is from my daughter Emily. She owns the Olive You Stampin' Up set, and she used it to make my card. I absolutely love it! She added some Stickles for a little sparkle! She even used my ticket punch!


My daughter Jessica used this magazine cover as her inspiration. She wanted to do an ad inspiration like I did a few days ago.


Didn't she do an amazing job? She chalked the pots, and they really feel like they're terra cotta! I'm incredibly impressed! My girls are both so creative!

I got some wonderful goodies too! I'll show you those tomorrow! I have a very nice birthday, and the best part was spending the whole day with my girls! How nice to have them at home on my birthday! Unfortunately, my husband worked a really long day, so I didn't get an opportunity to spend too much time with him. We did rent movies yesterday, and my girls and I watched Waitress, Martian Child, and then in the evening, we all watched August Rush. All three were pretty good movies! Fun birthday! Thanks again for all of the fantastic birthday wishes, and thanks for stopping by!!
