Celebrations R good!

I know it's only Tuesday but it's been a week of celebration so far!

My daughter Amanda's birthday was yesterday so after making plans for her to come over for dinner, I had to put my butt in gear to make her a card, shop for home-made lasagna fixin's and bake some yummy cupcakes. Of course all of that took time I didn't have but after your kids leave home, you find yourself agreeing to almost anything, just to see them there again. In the end, the stress of Monday at work combined with the running around to get it all done ended as a lovely family dinner of catching up and laughing, the perfect end to the day .

The other celebration is over at the Scrappy Tree, where we are celebrating our first anniversary! It's been one heck of a year but my two partners in crime make it all worth it. They are beyond creative, great listeners and people I am proud to call friends and I couldn't do it without them. This month we combined Julie's November Inspiration Challenge with our anniversary so this was the inspiration piece Julie picked.

It's not too late for you to give it a try, head over to The Scrappy Tree for more details or our Scrappy Community to upload your inspired piece. This is what I came up with for the challenge;

I hope you find a reason to celebrate this week too, thanks for stopping by :)

  1. So many yummy cakes in today's post, which reminds me that it's MY daughter's birthday tomorrow - yes, I've still got to make the card, the cakes, etc etc (she's only going to be 14).

    I'll pop over to the Scrappy Tree to see about the challenge - love your entries - are they ATC's?

    Have a lovely day!
