First an update…. TODAY is the last day of kindergarten. Tomorrow, he turns six. I’ve finished ALL of the school projects (good thing, they were due yesterday for the class party). I will be continuing my teacher gift series tomorrow! Stay tuned. AND don’t forget to play along with my challenge over on the A*Muse*A*Palooza blog… PRIZES are to be had!
But first thing first… My dear, dear friend Sharon (her and her husband are our BFFs!) had a birthday Memorial Day weekend. She and I go way back and we both like to craft! So, we try to give each other crafty goodness for presents! But we rarely make anything for each… it’s usually more about the "goods" 🙂
She likes Flamingos for as long as I’ve known her. She even has tasteful flamingo lawn art! Anyway, back in our days with Stampin’ Up!, one of her first sets was the Tickled Pink (flamingo) set. She still owns it and it is now sought after on places like Ebay, etc.
Well, A Muse to the rescue for all of you bird lovers! We have a flamingo… and A "HAPPY BIRD-DAY" stamp, too!
I really wanted to decorate a bag for her… that’s part of our thing… we (actually SHE is much better at this than I am) take the packaging to a whole new level. But wait, I have some of the full 8.5×11 sheets of A Muse polka dot paper! WOHOO!
Here’s what I did…
Oh, the Spicas…they made all the difference on my little bird.
We had a great time (as usual) celebrating with them. We went to the drafthouse (our favorite place to go!) and we watched the new Indian Jones flick.
Happy birthday, my friend!
