You Miss 100% of the Shots You Never Take :)

Hi everyone! :)

I mentioned that Brookie's birthday party is later this month, and I made each of the girls that are attending her party a little canvas with an inspirational quote from Wayne Gretzky. Now, he was a famous (and the greatest IMO) ice hockey player, but I feel this quote can be used for any sport.

Brookie and all the girls that are attending the party play volleyball, so this fit them :)












Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Hey Friend :)

Hi everyone! :)

Normally I do not get to play along on World Card Making Day as it always falls on the Saturday after Brookie's birthday, and we normally do her birthday party that weekend.  But this year, she chose to do her party later in the month at "Our Creative Escape" (more on that later this month) -- and so I was able to make some cards on Saturday morning before I did some chores around the house :)


I made 4 cards on Saturday.  I used some Photo Play paper, Paper Smooches and My Favorite Things stamps, and some Adorn-It papers. 











And thank you all that left Brookie a comment for her birthday on her post this past Thursday!! She really appreciated them!! :)

Hi everyone!

It's me, Brookie, and today is my 12th BIRTHDAY!!!

Happy Birthday to me!! :)





This past Saturday, Mom asked me to answer the door, and MY BROTHER was there!!!!!! He came from Texas to surprise me for my birthday!! I LOVE HIM!! :)




Mom and Dad took us to Yogurt-Tini (our fave fro-yo place!) and of course Mom made us pose like THIS ....




And we REALLY wanted to pose like this! LOL!! :)






Sunday we celebrated my birthday along with my Nana Sue's birthday (her birthday was yesterday, we are birthday twins!!!) :)

Happy birthday Nana!!!! Love you!!! :)




We opened our presents!! :)










We ate the cakes that my Mom made!! And I promised I would show the photo of this one cake she made, before we decorated it!! Mom was joking that it looked like the cake was crying cause he was baked!! HAHAHAHA!!! 




And here they are decorated!! I did the one on the left, and Mom did the one on the right! :)





 Me and Nana singing Happy Birthday to each other!! :)





Trying to blow our candles out, and obviously one of mine was being stubborn!! Of course Mom would say that's because that candle is on my cake! HA! 







I love him!! :)





Happy birthday to ME!!!!!! :)

Happy birthday! -- featuring Simple Stories and Paper Smooches

Hi everyone!

We literally have THREE birthdays we celebrate on October 4th! Brooke's, her school principal and my former boss. (The latter two know I will never forget their birthdays, since they share it with Brooke! Lol!) 

I made them each a card this past weekend, using some Simple Stories goodies and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches :)
