bag and birthday recap

The gifts for our precious mothers are still in the works (meaning I haven't figured that part out yet.) But at least I sewed the gift bags together...
At one of my recent ventures I picked up a little felt bag for Avery with some goodies in it and was excited to recreate my own for presents. I love it because you can reuse them but they don't look like they've been reused. My sisters and I are always giving each other presents back in the same bags-makes me laugh.
If anyone is interested I will put together a tutorial... It was pretty easy, so let me know.
Corduroy Flowers, buttons & large flower are from the Scarlet Lime May kit.
Speaking of which, the winner of the Scarlet Lime May Kit is:

kreativeimagination Yay!! You won! Send me your info via email.

Thanks for all your birthday wishes and sweet comments! Big hugs to you for making my day even more special!
Turned out to be a great day! Lunch with Collin at Cafe Rio blasting Adele in the car. Later we all met for a mad game of kickball/baseball, ate pizza, opened presents. Our fam-love them!
Can you believe my birthday blog card? haha! Yes, Collin is hilarious! Yes, he has me laughing all the time and I'm glad you get an idea of the kind of craziness he brings to our home. Yes, I am going to make him live up to his giveaway promise-speedo and all. :) Nope, he doesn't have a blog. (Not sure if the blog world is ready for that;) but he has a photoblog here and follow him on twitter for some more laughs (PixelPop is his username).

Wellll... THAT explains a lot! I was wondering how it is that you have so many great pictures of yourself. I am the photographer in the family and I have to search through months and months of pics to find one of myself. It's inevitably taken by my daughter and my head is cut off. Haha!
Love the Pixel pop blog. Your man is v. funny. :)

Glad you had a great birthday and have such a fun family. Question: Did Collin also dye his hair dark brown? C'mon, you can tell me...You guys are twins again, right?

The Lonely Scrapbooker said...

I just learned you're the June guest designer for Studio Calico! The news made my day. I was lobbying for you (not that that had anything to do with it, as I started lobbying way after when you would have been asked to do it.)
I'm a huge Studio Calico fan (I've been getting their kits since November) and I can't wait to see what you do with their kit. I'll probably order all the add-ons for the kit so I can have everything to do some major scraplifting of your pages.
I'm really looking forward to the reveal now!
