Celebrating My Birthday at Paper Niche

Good morning! Today is a very special day for me as it's my 54th birthday!  As a young girl growing up in South America, I could not even imagine being this age and being where I am in life!  How things change as we grow older!

I spent this past weekend in Ft. Lauderdale celebrating my birthday at a crop at Paper Niche.  Tammy and her crew were incredibly gracious!  The crop room was really decked out.  Here's a photo of the name tag and goodie container each cropper had waiting for them at their table.

The entrance of the crop room was decorated with beautiful black and gold balloons and my chair was  decorated  as well.  (You can see in the background the large balloon that was tied to my chair.)  They also gave me a beautiful crown to wear all weekend!

Mindy baked & decorated these delicious cupcakes.

Here are some pictures we took on Saturday.

Tammy planned this project a few weeks ago.  She asked those who were coming to the crop to make ATC's as birthday cards. She hung them all on a Melissa Frances crown.  It turned out sooooo beautiful.  I will treasure it forever.  Thank you all!!!

Mindy and I got to play again on Saturday night and this is one of the layouts we made.  The balloons are from an Accu-Cut machine die.

Thank you, Tammy,  Paper Niche girls and all my sweet friends who participated in this special crop.  I love you all!  I am soooo blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life.  Have a great and blessed day!
