Birthday love - Part II

Hello!! How's ur weekend so far?  Hope it's going well. :)
I'm here to share the rest of my birthday cards and projects.  Now getting back to the sharing.  Let's start it off with some cute cards from some lovely crafting friends.

From my crafty friend Angie made this cute stack of cupcakes using some SU stamps and a wonderful new set of stamps for me to play with. YAY! Thanks Angie!


Next some cute Aloha fun using some Taj of Honolulu stencils from my Lollipop Crafts sister Cyndi Kim.  Mahalo Cyndi!! :)


Super cute!  She also sent some pretty flower gems and an adorable Birthday Monkey to play with.  :)

Lastly but certainly not the least is an awesome project made by my buddy Renate.  She went all out for the box and my letters using some awesome aloha prints and terrific accents and flowers.




The honu are suspended on acetate, they look like they are floating.
 Check out this box she decorated using the same papers, embellies, flowers and other accents.  So awesome!!

And on the inside were some really surprising/generous gifts that I definitely was not expecting...

(l to r)  Yumi & Fumiko
Also tucked inside the box were two very generous gift cards to use for anything I wanted.  I was so blown away with everyone's generosity that I was pretty speechless for a few minutes.  Needless to say I can possibly buy any craft product without worrying about denting my bank account.  For now, I'm going to save them and spend them wisely.  We shall see where they go; to crafts or something else.  I know I have one more present that she hasn't finished yet.  It's really not her fault, she's waiting on a couple of people to get their act together and get her what she needs.  Maybe I'll get it by Christmas...  hahaha!!  But I love what she made me and cherish everyone who participated in my wonderful day/night.
I wish I had pictures of the party, but alas I forgot to take any.  I was sooo busy catching up with friends and family that I totally forgot.  So bummed, because you all would have been so impressed by all the ono food and the decorations! 

I wanted to take this opportunity to say MAHALO to everyone that made this a fabulous night.  Renate, Zach, Jesse, Liz, Chuck, my parents, brothers, sister and future BIL.  Kat, Zach, Mrs Winter & my dad for cooking all the onolicious food.  Renate & Liz for the awesome decorations (it was the hottest day possible and they trooped through it like champs to make it look so wonderful).  Jackie, Jesse, Nicole & Paul for distracting me.  The Corias, Wongs, Gils, Rudingers, Paulsons, Wachs, Winters, my wonderful cousin Chuck Garcia, Janelle, Char, Janet F, Susie W, Randi, Yumi, Ash, Rose & Daryl Thank you all for coming to the party and helping me celebrate and making a wonderful evening special. And to the Rodriguez, Garcias, Dungs, Alan & Greg I, thank you for the generosity even though you couldn't make it.  I felt the love across the miles. 

No one could have been more surprised and happy that day then me.  Love you guys!!

Thanks for letting me ramble on and share.  Hope you all enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Hugs,
