Thank you to so many of you that sent me birthday greetings and well wishes! It was yesterday and was a great day! I went into Nathan's class for craft, went to Adam's football game at his school with the kids, ordered in and went to bed early! Who can ask for more??? (is this a sign I'm getting old:)
On Thursday I had my downline meeting and my tricky ladies sure pulled a fast one over on me. It was actually very much appreciated (thank you Stars!) and was done in such a fun way - thank you!
Renee made me this sweet birthday hat....how cute is that??? I'm really not sure how she did it, but will find out. I love how everyone used Spice Cake on my surprises. I think the curled paper on the top of the hat are my favourite, thank you Renee!
During my downline meeting, different members of my team do presentations. My mom offered to do a presentation and conveniently asked me if she could go last as she was nervous (starting to think this was in the works for a while!)
My mom demonstrated interlocking cards (that are super cool!) After presenting the cards and a some fun templates, she demonstrated a box. I thought this was so super cool and that the circles that folded over the edge actually interlock and "lock" up the box.
My mom then said she needed a hand to open the box as the circles were catching (yes, I still have NO idea what's going on!) and when I opened it up.....check it out! I love that when my mom ordered the cake she asked for Pool Party icing and Soft Suede (OK, maybe she didn't say those colours...but could have as the colours were a great match! I did laugh when she told us that she asked the cake store for an extra box as she had to embellish it up! And it sure was embellishted....check out all the lollies...one is trimmed with ribbon and the other with a dotted edge scallop.
The cake made it home in one piece (although was enjoyed yesterday...thanks mom!) For the downline meeting we had cupcakes that were so yummy! But of course my mom couldn't just give out cupcakes they each needed a little holder. So, all 36 of the cupcakes were in these little gems that each had a lolli flower on it and a scalloped edge top! WAY too much work and a ton fo fun!
Thank you so much for a memorable meeting, a fun night and being treated so nicely! I hope your day is GREAT! Mine is as we are the fundraiser all day today! Can't wait!
