It's a 60's Party!

My dad celebrated his 60th birthday back in February and we threw him a surprise 60's party... so much fun!!! Below are pictures of my dad and I, as well as the cake I had made. The tie dye t-shirt invite is actually one that I made for a party that the boyfriend's mom is throwing... totally groovy, right?

Chic Boutique

I love my Chic Boutique stamp set from Stampin Up! I just love how girly it is... It almost makes me wish I lived in Paris! So below are the birthday cards I made for those with summer birthdays. My best friend will get the one on the left today... Happy 26th Birthday, Hadar!!!

Father's Day

Happy Father's Day! Below are some of the cards I've made over the years for my dad... of course, none of them quite measure up. Now as most little girls will say that they have the best dad in the whole wide world, I REALLY mean it when I say I HAVE THE BEST DAD IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD!!! His initials even spell D.A.D... how cool is that? So happy Father's Day to all the dad's in the world, but a VERY SPECIAL happy Father's Day to my DAD!

Thank You

So I spent last week up in Hume Lake with the boyfriend's parents and thought it appropriate to post Thank You cards... all three of these were made using Stampin' Up!'s Pocket Sillhouettes. I tend to like simple. Anyways, a HUGE thank you to the boyfriend's parents for hosting me (and humoring my rediculous eating habits) for a week!!! I had such fun enjoying the great outdoors! Happy crafting!

Polka Dots

Black and white polka dots were the theme of our Teacher Appreciation Brunch for Sunday School this year. I made water bottle labels with a polka dot border and "Thank You" written across the middle. I also made cupcakes as the "thank you" gift for all the Sunday School volunteers... red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, then wrapped them in some black and white polka dot wrapping paper. Yum! The cupcake wrappers were super easy to make as I found a template on the internet, cut, traced, and cut again. And I even thought to wear my black and white polka dot wedges so I totally matched the theme! Happy crafting, everyone!

Cheers to You

Cheers! Today is the boyfriend's birthday... Happy Birthday, Daniel Jamal!!! So I thought I would share some birthday cards. I made both of these using the Stampin' Up! Cheers to You stamp set for all those with summer birthdays, mainly all my aunts and uncles... so to my aunts who might possibly be reading this... happy birthday and the pink one's for you! I'm off to celebrate. Happy crafting everyone!

Crab & Company

Keeping with the claw theme: Crab & Company has got to be one of my favorite stamp sets... it's just so versitile! Stampin' Up! makes some pretty awesome stamp sets and this one is no exception. There's "shore do love you" for the boyfriend, "snappy birthday", and even "jingle sheels" and "sandy claws" for Christmas! Ha! I love it! And I haven't even used "a pinch to grow an inch" yet! Oh, the possibilities! Happy crafting!

"Here Lobby, Lobby, Lobby"

That would be my lobster call. We used to vacation with my mom's family during the summer in a rented beach house in North Carolina. Crazy! My mom has three sisters and three out of the four of them have two daughters each. The girls pretty much run the show and the boys run for the golf course. We played lots of card games and ate plenty of lobster. My mom's family is from Maine so we would eat Maine lobster, but as kids, we were told that we had to call them out of the ocean. We would all stand at the end of the boardwalk and call for lobsters which would then come crawling up that same boardwalk, rubber bands around the claws and all! So this was a care package I put together for my mom as she went back to Maine to visit her mom. It contains two lobster bibs and a lobster claw cracker all wrapped up in a lobster stamped bag. I can't get over how cute the claw cracker is! Happy crafting!
