Dad's Birthday

so my Dad turns 55 this coming Friday. Hard to believe that! He still seems so young to me and i don't like to think about my parents aging.... as that means i am as well! I admire him for the Father he is and was to me growing up and will always cherish the 'kid' in him that he allowed us to see.
Happy Birthday Dad!! Love you much!

Top Note pocket

so when the big shot does all the work for you how easy is THAT?! Using the top not die, we cut two pieces out in the real red(adhered them using sticky strip) and again once more w/ the gorgeous Sending Love Specialty paper out of the Occasions Mini. Then i just trimmed along the edge of the dsp so it's matted on the real red. the pink ribbon we used is the new 5/8" satin ribbon we used out of the O.M as well and my upline called it 'yummy'.... i thought that fit perfectly!
