A Great Saturday!

What a great Saturday it has been.  I was awake early, but turned Pandora on and went back to sleep.  The house was so quiet.  I got up and baked a cake to decorate for pickup tomorrow.  I then received a text from my baby girl Brookie that she was going to come out and craft with me and she brought lunch.  Could it get any better?  We made the most adorable project using my Cameo.  She loves turtles so of course she wanted to make something turtle-ish.  I found a download from the Silhouette Store and we went to work.  Here is what we made.

Is this not the cutest turtle you ever done seen?  I know, bad grammar.  LOL!  We used Pistachio Pudding, Wild Wasabi and Chocolate Chip cardstock.  The bow was made from some retired Primrose Petals ribbon and of course we had to add some bling using the Self-adhesive Pearls.  The eye was a pearl too that I colored with a Sharpie black marker.  Everything used was Stampin'Up! except for the marker.

Then as if the day couldn't get any better, my hubby added a couple of shelves in my stamp room so that I can get a few things up off the counter and leave me more work space.  He got home from work and Brooke asked him if it would be possible (she always has such good organizing ideas) and he ran uptown and got what was needed and put them up right away.  Yay me!!!!  Thanks Brookie for the idea and thanks my Frankie Boy for doing it so quickly.

Then to top the day off, the order from our Origami Owl party came.  My sister Michele is a designer for them so my girls and myself had a party for her.  She needed someone to practice on and I guess we were good practice.  We had a great party and got lots of free stuff.  You can check out her website above if you are interested in ordering or learning more.  It's really nice quality and it's fun to create and put together that special piece of jewelry that has real meaning to you.  I will try and take a pic of some the things we got and post later.

Ok, I guess I've rambled on enough.  I need to go and finish decorating that cake.  I got distracted somewhere along the way.  LOL!
