My family threw a surprise Birthday Party for my twin sister and I last weekend! It was really a surprise since our birthday isn't until next month! We had a fabulous time! We wanted to send everyone a Thank you card! I fell in love with the Double Pocket Fold Card by Heather. You can find her easy instructions here-
Here are a few more pictures of the cards. We found a Magnolia stamp of TWINS!!! How cute! I love how you can decorate and embellish them all differently!

Here is another shot of the 32 cards we made-
I also wanted to share a picture of the finalize Christmas Advent box I made for my Grandson. His mother came to visit this weekend and took it home. I added more bling around the edges and a few store bought made Christmas packages to add to Santa's sleigh and under the tree.
We bought a Sharper Image foot massager ( for my sore feet) and it turned out to be the perfect size to store the Advent calendar in!!! It even has it's own handle at the top. I decided to decorate it so my daughter could use it to carry the calendar to the island. I used Graphic 45 paper which is my new favorite paper! I love how it turned out!
Lastly, I wanted to share the cute Birthday cake my family had made for my sister and I to celebrate our upcoming birthdays! They planned a surprise party that really did turn out to be a BIG surprise since our birthday isn't for another month!!!It was such a fun time. I am still talking about it!! Since they know both Connie and I love Mickey- They had a Mickey cake made! It was fabulous- I won't forget that party and all the work that went into it. They chipped in to give us a spa gift certificate!! I can't wait to use it! Thank you to everyone- I love you all!!
You can check out my sister's blog to see more pictures of our Birthday party. Rochelle make a framed picture using our names to fill in pictures of Connie and I when we were, ahem, younger! I love how it turned out! Thanks, Rochelle for this special gift!!

I bought Kaiser's Advent Calendar Kit this summer for half price! I have wanted to make one for my grandson, Ezra. I have finally finished it- Well almost- finished it! I have really had fun working on this project- A little bit each night after work. Now, my husband and I have the challenge of filling each little box with a little "surprise". It really is a challenge since the box is only about 1 1/2 inches. I am thinking candy, coins, and little cars ( Ezra loves cars) hmmm.. what else? That will be the challenge....
Check out a few more pictures from start to finish-
I used Sizzix's 3D sleigh and Reindeer dies to make my Santa fly! The "reins" are Memory Box Jingle bells die.
