Happy Birthday, Susie!


Today is my daughter Susie's birthday! She is 19. It's hard to believe I--I mean SHE is that old! LOL She was the teeniest little thing when she was born--only 6 pounds even. Now she's my grown up college daughter!

We pre-celebrated her birthday in December, while she was still home, but of course we still sent a package for her actual birthday! How did I send her off to college without a few blank greeting cards, you may ask? Well, I have Swiss cheese for brains apparently. So I sat down in my craft room last week to come up with a few that might suit her.

First, you should know that my mojo has been seriously missing for a couple months. Ok, maybe more than that. LOL It feels like there has been so much going on, I haven't just sat down and crafted for my own enjoyment. First I shoved everything to the side cleared off my table, and then I started looking through all my pretty new things from the Occasions Mini and Sale-a-bration brochure!

The Welcome Neighbor DSP pad (a FREE Sale-a-bration reward!) caught my eye. My hoarding gene immediately raised its head--"What if you need that paper for a more important project later?" But it's for *Susie*, so I knew I could do it! Once I got started, the ideas came easily! This paper is really easy to use!



I didn't even stamp on this one! {gasp} It seemed just right the way it was, and now Susie can use it for any occasion that comes up! I'll have a few more to share over the next few blog posts. Open up that paper and USE it!

Happy birthday, Susie!
