Helen, I decided that you needed a special room to celebrate your birthday. I found the perfect QP Room in Shabby Chic Rooms Part 2 where I also found some roses to place into your vase and a book where I marked the perfect place for you to read. I tucked many little surprises inside the hat box just for you...but, I accidently opened the lid and you'll find them floating around your blog throughout the day! In the DP "Ever After" kit, Deb had whipped up a silver and gold cake that is just perfect for your room and Diane's silver leaded hearts and alpha were perfect to add some birthday decorations to your birthday room. If you tire of reading, just relax on the gorgeous pink pillow from Shabby Chic Rooms Part 2 and dream about the blue bonnets you planted from Diane's seeds that will hopefully return again in the spring. With all the snow it might be hard, so I added a visual for you to gaze upon.
Happy Birthday, my friend...I hope you have a perfect day!!!
PS...Oh my! I decided to play with an animation program and the writing birthday wish turned out so big and I'm not sure why it has the white edge. It's 25 frames so I don't think I will redo it since it will only be up for a few days. Fun practice for me anyway...guess it's one way to send a "BIG" Happy Birthday message.
