Good Thursday morning everyone! Such a great day... I'm listening to my new downloaded music from Glee's Madonna episode. The baby and I are rockin' right now :). He he!

Thanks for all of the birthday wishes!! Below are some of my favorite photos from my celebration(s). But first, let's talk about my card for today.

It features one of the Sweet November fairies at ATS created by the lovely Amy Young. Speaking of creating stamps, I added another to my bucket list. Someday, I would love to have my own line of stamps :). But first things first, gotta get on a Design team ;)..wish me luck!

Anyway, when I started seeing the Kioshi line of Basic Grey, I fell in love. I especially adored what Camille did with it! I mixed some kol laj strips and added some bling and Prima flower and voila! I'm not too happy with how her hair ended up. Kept messing up with the blending so it got darker and darker. But I do like the texture on her skirt!

So my birthday was yesterday and I've been having lots of fun the last few days.


Here's Matthew checking his google reader....buwahahahaha!


A present from my DH... don't you just loved the 'whimsical' wrapping paper (aka newspaper)? Aww, men!! Sweet though! I got a camcorder! I think the gift was also for him....but don't mind at all! :)


I have a new niece -- Alyssa! She was born the day before my birthday. What a lovely present!


Some goodies from Baskin Robbins:






Breakfast with my BFF, Jo, who's also Mattie's Ninang (Godmother). You might ask why I put MK's hair in a ponytail... there's a Filipino superstition that we can't cut the baby's hair till they turn one for good luck! I put it up because it's getting so long! He keeps getting mistaken for a girl though :(.


Mattie and his favorite cousin, Alexander.


This is what happens when I leave my hubby to dress the lil one.

My sis with her Godson.

Somy yummy food from my bday dinner. Such great sliders above!


This one served plantains with guacamole --- so good!


Ahi tuna -- the best I've tasted!



A group pic with my best girlfriends. Love them!

Enjoy your day!
