It's Time To Celebrate!

Good morning!!! Yesterday was my birthday and I got an AWESOME gift from Keith and the kids!! You know how I love photography, well, they bought me a new Nikon D90!! I'm so excited to get out and play with it! I had a chance to play a little last night, but can't wait to really get out there! The kid's bought me an ice cream cake from DQ (yummy!) That was my dinner! LOL! I had made a roast beef dinner but when I opened my gift, I was over the moon and couldn't eat! LOL! It's ok to have ice cream cake for dinner on your birthday, right?? Ashleigh and I love the show "Cake Boss" and she is super sweet and made me a cake! I got lots of awesome gifts and on Saturday I'm going to my sister's for a "Girls Only" get together and I can take my new cocktail shaker!! The other great news is that I got the order from CTMH yesterday with my new book "Magic" which is in the upcoming catalogue and it is a MUST HAVE for all you scrapbookers!! I LOVE it and can't wait to try some layouts!! Alrighty, here's a couple pics from my new camera....

So, in honor of my birthday, I'd like to celebrate with you by giving away the new and upcoming CTMH Autumn/Winter catalogue!! I may even throw in a little something else too!! It's a SURPRISE!! All you have to do is leave me a comment (one per person please) about your favorite birthday memory OR just leave me a birthday wish! That's it! Contest closes Friday, August 20 at 9pm EST and winner will be announced on Saturday, August 21!!

Happy Belated Birthday, Karen!! Sounds like it was a great day, how awesome that you got a new camera! It takes some very nice pics!

My favorite birthday memory is from a few years ago...I spent the day shopping with my mom and we had dinner at Red Robin. For as long as I can remember, that was the first time I spent one-on-one time with her for my birthday. It was very special!

Happy Birthday Karen! Sorry I missed it... I was away for my birthday too! This year we were camping on my birthday. Got up early, did some fishing, drove for a couple hours, did some more fishing and had a nice big fat juicy elk steak! It was a great birthday! Sounds like yours was too!

my most memorable birthday was my 11th. i was to go with my aunt to west virgina. the day before i slipped in a friends wading pool, fell on glass and had 22 stitches in my knee. never got to go. but had a great birthday because EVERYONE (like the whole neighborhood) came by with birthday AND get well gifts!!!!! still have the scar too!

hope it was super. and i'd love to get my hands on that catty
