Happy Birthday!

Thanks for sticking with me this past week as I have been busy with work, sports and too exhausted at night to stamp. This week I'll be at a conference for work which I am looking forward to, but will be glad to be back at home just in time to welcome my parents in to town for the weekend.

I'm having such a blast with this set and though I would put together a little birthday gift ensemble using Birthday Darling.

Like about a zillion other stampers I have bits & pieces of patterned paper all over and am really trying to use some of them up. I think I'm actually going to start some teacher's gifts for the holidays so I can use a lot of it up.

I had been going through some of my alterable items that I've got in a rubbermaid container out in my storage area and came across one of these older diecut boxes that SU! use sell. I thought it would be perfect so I went about re-creating on Chocolate Chip cardstock. After it was said and done, I like it a lot but think if I would have used Kraft instead I would *love* it!

Hope you enjoy the set!
