! ! ! ! Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na - - - You Say It's Your Birthday! ! ! !

Today for my CSDivas DT Post, I am changing it up a bit.  

The CSDivas have been an avid part of who I am as a crafter and creator and have helped me grow tremendously over the last year.  Since they are so warm and inviting, I wanted to share their encouragement with Teresa, my BFF.   So for today, I am showcasing a few crafty projects she completed.  She doesn't have a blog yet (but this is on my to do list to help her out...he he he).  

She was  visiting this weekend to celebrate the 4 birthdays that took place this month just in our house....LOL.  Haylee is now 2, Lance Jr. is now 5,  I just turned 30 something, with the DH, Lance a day behind me turning 30 something as well.  Teresa and I have always shared compassion for art and I was blown away when she arrived today.  Look what she brought with her....

She said that she wanted to give us an Island Getaway!!!  LOVE IT!!!

Teresa spent a lot of time working on this fabulous cake for the entire February Birthday crew . . . and it was so so so very yummy.  The kids couldn't wait to dip into the wonderful waterfall of sugary sweet goodness.

After cake, there was crafty time.  Because, what is a BFF visit without some crafty time, right???
While I sat at my computer to show Teresa some inspiration and enable her to join Pinterest (LOL), she got started right away.  She knew she wanted to make a Birthday card for her dear sweet SIL, Jenn.   Isn't this lovely?  I think Teresa is really a true natural at this....don't you?

She will love it!!!

Keep Crafting

WOW!!! That cake is amazing! When I first saw it, I thought it was a sculpture!! My cakes are always very plain...just don't have the hang of using frosting to decorate. So when I see something like this I am so impressed! Glad you had a great visit and even got in some crafting time!
