Lauren's Birthday

August is certainly a month in our family for birthdays!!  My son's girlfriend has a birthday on August 25th and I need to get his in the mail pronto because they live in California and it takes a while to get there.  Eric and Lauren are headed to Maine in September.  Lauren has never been here.  Their first request is a lobster dinner which we will definitely have.  Check out Lynn Pratt's blog for all the punches that she used.  I love the way she made the claws, very creative!  This is one giant lobster!  Great for a scrapbooking page. The lemons are from SU Tart and Tangy set. I thought this was a perfect card to represent the State of Maine.
This is the inside of the card.  I used MS punch for the crab and sizzix for the shells, fence and seagull.  "Shore" hope she likes it!   Thanks for stopping by!

Get Well Soon Aunt Nan

My husband's aunt fell recently and broke her hip and now she is recovering in a rehab facility in Sun City, Florida where she lives.  She is 94 years old and is doing very well.  We were a little worried at first but she is making a great recovery especially for her age. Of note, just before she turned 94 in March she jumped out of an airplane!!  Tandem skydiving and I won't do it  at any age!  Amazing lady!  Anyhow I saw this card on pinterest as a birthday card and I  thought it would make a great "Get Well" card.  The paper is Bo Bunny and SU. The tulips are made from SU's bird punch. I used nestabilities for the sentiment and background for the tulips. Sponged a little Pixie Pink around the tulips so they would be a little more vivid. Love this card!  Thanks Pinterest!! What a great website! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday to Me!

My birthday was August 11th and my sisters gave me a cupcake party! I wanted to share some pictures of the gifts and cards that I received!  It is always great to get together with family. We even got to watch "The Lorax".  Fun film!!!

We decorated the cupcakes ourselves!
Love my new spinner!
Krista's in Cornish, Maine
To make the day complete, I had dinner at Krista's in Cornish with my good friend, Jan!  She picked a perfect place to celebrate.  We ate outside under the umbrellas.  It was a terrific meal!  Need to hurry back to this place for sure.  Check out our meals.  Thanks to all who made my day a happy birthday for sure!!!
