Happy birthday with the Scrapbook Circle Anniversary kit

So I needed to make some more birthday cards, and this FANTASTIC kit was just sitting on my desk! :)  the 5th anniversary kit from Scrapbook Circle. Last I checked they still have some left!  I'm telling you these bright colors are just FABULOUS!!
 I added some bling from my stash, and the silver pearls (I bought them at Michael's on an end cap and don't know the manufacturer--wish I did they are worth another couple of packs!)

Anyway, need to make this one a quick post as I need to figure out dinner for tonight--we have a band concert.  Tomorrow it's an awards ceremony for sports AND a play!  Can you tell it's the end of the year?

**little bragging mommy moment....my middle boy had straight A's this year and was honored with the other students who accomplished that at a special awards night last week--he even tested in to ALP (advanced learning placement), it will be GREAT for him--he needs a challenge! :)  My daughter had her last meet on Saturday (it was hot!  SO grateful for the umbrella and ice chest FULL of ice, water, and Gatorade)  Anyway, she did her best and did well.  placing 4th in the hurdles, and 2nd in the long jump.  She also did well with her grades and just missed being honored for national junior honor society.  (so glad that something has clicked with her and she is doing well with school, it was a REAL struggle when she was younger....)  My youngest is now in the middle of apple valley school, they get to dress up as a 19th century person (they take on their name) and do things like they would in that time period's school.  Today for extra credit he took a quilt his grandma made for him--he was VERY proud he could do that! :) **

Thanks for reading all of my post if you did! :)  Thanks for stopping in--make today a GREAT one!
