Yesterday my sweet princess turned 9! WOW does time fly. The biggest hit of the day was having her dad home for her birthday. I remember when we sat the kids down to tell them Russ was going overseas and the FIRST thing Alexis said to him was, "You're going to miss my birthday!"
We celebrated her day ALL day yesterday. She really was treated with royalty. Brandon wanted to start her day off right by serving her breakfast in bed. I couldn't believe this was his idea. The kids are going through the "stop looking at me" stage. I was relieved to still hear kindness from there mouths.
Here is the start of her day!
Brandon was wearing the Justin Bieber hat when he woke Alexis up. He told her it was cold and maybe she should wear it. Again, I wanted to faint from all the *LOVE* I was seeing.
Russ and I had lunch with the Princess at school. She really wanted to go to the American Girl Doll store in DC but the only thing I could think about was the traffic getting there. I compromised with her and said we will go this weekend. Instead I took her to have a Pedicure. Of course I enjoyed one too. <smile>
Extremely relaxing! We both enjoyed. We came home to pick up the boys and then we were off to her "spot" for dinner. After dinner we topped the evening off with a fun birthday cake and 9 spankings and a pinch to grow an inch!
It was a GREAT day!!
Here is the card I made for my princess.
I used all kinds of new products on this card. The stamp set is called Sweet Cake. Super cute and the BEST thing I love about this card is something you cannot really SEE or SMELL! I added the Vanilla Scented Stampin' Emboss Powder to the swirls on the cupcake. LOVE that we have these embossing powders. We also carry Melon and Cherry. How fun is that? I used a VersaMarker so that I could emboss in that tiny area. She could smell the Vanilla as soon as she opened it.
Other fun products on this card that I used would be the Sweet Shop DSP. I love that this DSP can be used for so many occasions. From Birthday, Valentines or just a Candy kind of card. Very fun. I used the new pleated ribbon along with some new Lucky Limeade Bakers Twine. I even used some Seam Binding ribbon. Lots of fun things.
As always, you can find all these fun products in my Online Store.
This weekend Alexis has her birthday party with friends. I'll share her birthday invitation soon. She is having a Doll & Me Tea with her friends at a special tea shop. I'm not sure who is more excited, her or myself.
Have a fabulous week!
