Going Pink Donation

How is it November 1st already? Where has the year gone? My birthday is Sunday, and it feels like I just had my birthday. Rick is taking me to the beach for the weekend. He has taken me to the beach every year for my birthday for the last 17 years. Wow, we have been together that long -- amazing. The best part is the kids stay home. Not that I do not love my kids, but an entire weekend with just hubby -- is a once a year thing.


Remember this post, the one about my donation? I ended up having 95 comments so I am rounding it up to $100. I will be mailing the check to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure next week. Thanks to everyone that helped me reach my goal!!

This is the only thing that I have created lately. I made some more Designer Paper with stamps. I used the Beautiful Blooms stamp set from Paper Trey. I am going to take this with me this week, and create some cards with it.

Happy Birthday! Enjoy your weekend away with the hubs! I've been able to spend a couple of birthdays at the beach, but the kids were with us, so it's not quite the same. I would LOVE to get away without the kids for a weekend soon. Have a blast and enjoy every second!!!

How wonderful of you to donate that money for breast cancer research! God bless you!

This paper is beautiful - I thought it was designer paper until I read that you had made it yourself! Great job!
