See Princess Tea Party at Craftberrybush, I’m a Proud Mom, Blog Winner & More!!

Hi Everyone, 

I'm all gushy today!  I have the prettiest post to share with party samples that Lucy from Craftyberrybush shared on her Blog for her niece's birthday party.  I also want to gush about my oldest daughter Katie who is jet setting across Canada interviewing possible bachelorette ladies for the new Bachelor Canada Show!  We also have a winner for our Blog Giveaway for our new stamp sets with congratulations to Kathi # 46! and scroll down to see more great ideas!

I showed some links previously to Lucy's Blog The Craftberry Bush as I'm so inspired by her creative ideas and tutorials! I didn't realize she is also Canadian when I first discovered her blog. I think in 'Blogland' the world becomes smaller and I don't even notice  borders.  She is still over 4000 miles away but the internet allows us to all connect, share and inspire each other globally and that is a wonderful thing.
Our Vintage CD's work great for so many home decor and altered projects so I sent Lucy copies of the CD's and a few other goodies and she is has been playing and is also going to do a giveaway next month.
I love the way she printed papers from the CD's to create 'wallpaper' and party decor for her 6 year old niece's princess tea party.  The colors look so sunny & inviting, perfect for girls of any ages. You can see a bunch more photos HERE on Lucy's Blog .
Okay, why am I a proud mom? I'm so happy and proud of my family but I've been missing our oldest daughter Katie as she is traveling with an exciting new show. Here is one of my fave recent photos of all of us together, our 3 daughters, 2 boyfriends and the dogs and Katie (in pink with her pug George) has been working at Force Four Productions for a couple of years as a writer and production assistant and she is currently traveling across Canada with the crew doing auditions for their new show Bachelor Canada!  

Katie's last show Million Dollar Neighbourhood is a reality TV series on the Oprah network about the community of Aldergrove BC and the families who are trying to take control of their finances and the power of the community to help each other. They have weekly goals and 3 months until the $10,000.00 bonus is awarded. 

We had our annual Oscar Party here last night and each bet $5.00, printed ballots, voted and Scott won.  Katie's boyfriend Ryan & their dog George came - except we all missed Kate but are super excited for her.  Her crew did auditions for possible Bachelorette's in Montreal today and are heading to Nova Scotia before flying home.

I have a couple of more great projects to show you I like this idea Jan Hennings had to stamp on a dollar store muslin towel and then used to stitch a little bag. Jan used stamps from our Material Girl Small Clear Art Set.

Also look at the 2 layouts Julie Campbell stitched using papers from our CD # 2, Creating with Vintage Illustrations.  Pure shabby goodness and you can see her other layout and the details HERE on Julie's Blog.

 I really want to thank you for all the wonderful comments and fabulous feedback on the last post!  You have no idea how much it means to know you like what we are doing! I wish everyone could win that why we include a nice gift with every order. 

 I will be back soon with new eye candy and more 2012 show details this week.

Oh, this is so lovely Princess Tea Party at Craftberrybush. I am just in love with the photos. At a local event venue New York we also would be hosting a 1980s themed tea party for our parent’s 50th anniversary. If you have some décor inspirations, please share that as well.
