My birthday weekend at Paper Niche

Good morning! I am back from an amazing weekend in Ft. Lauderdale. I got to teach and crop with fabulous friends and had so much fun! Let me tell you  about it.... Sharmila brought dinner for everyone in the class and red velvet cupcakes too!

They were soooo yummy!

The following day Mindy brought cupcakes too! Yes, I gained about 5 lbs during my visit!

This is  the "Rum in 'da coconut" cupcake. A yummy and fluffy coconut-rum  cake drizzled in coconut cream with a buttercream topped with sweet coconut! (sinful.... very sinful....)

We got a chance to play with chipboard hearts and this is what the talented and sweet  Mindy  made:

She also made these two fabulous pieces:

My dear friend Cassia was there too. I was surrounded by so much love, hugs and smiles!!!

She made this adorable house made out of chipboard.

I am officially 53 years old (since last Sunday) and at least 5 lbs heavier.....Thank you Tammy,  Paper Niche, Gine, Krista, and everyone who made my weekend totally amazing. Can't wait till next time! Have a fabulous and blessed day!
