And, in mom fashion I have a few things I made. And, that her sister made too.

I’ll start with this –

libbystamps, Stampin' Up, August Paper Pumpkin, Nugget Birthday Cake, All Shook Up Paper Pumpkin, Chalk It Up To Love Paper Pumpkin

Everyone loves cake, right? Especially this one. Another view –

It’s little wrapped nuggets!

When I received the August Paper Pumpkin, I knew exactly who I was going to use it for. My daughter loves pink and gold.

I used the card bases, and box, to wrap the nuggets in the layered cake.

I won’t go into a tutorial today, but this fairly was easy. It just took a while to complete.

I had a crafting day while Emily was here on summer break. I taught her how to make paper flowers. So, she made these for her sister –

Aren’t these lovely? We all love flowers – especially ones that last! Twenty five fabulous flowers here!

Lastly, I made a simple, fun card –

After several attempts at that perfect card, this was it. I used some gold foil letters from my stash of paper crafting supplies for that WOW factor.

Here you can see just how shiny there are –

The ensemble was great! Dark photo or not!

The only thing missing was a banner…….Well, there are only so many paper crafting hours in a day before the post office has to take and deliver this……speaking of which, I hope it arrived it pretty good shape!

So, to our oldest twenty-five year old daughter,
