Party Day...

I am awake very early this morning... have such a busy day & I know I will need a nap in about 2 hours! Probably not very likely today! Brooke's party is today so I thought I would share a couple more pics with you... sorry no stamping today. I spent quite a bit of yesterday balling 2 watermelon & then carving both watermelon into turtle shells... I will have pics to show at a later time of that... I also cut up cantaloupes & honey dew melons until I was all sticky. *ö*

Last night we went to decorate at the hall where the party is being held... above you will see the turtley cake my sis carved out of cake... 2 - 16 inch round cakes for the body, 2 - 6 inch cakes for the head, an 8 inch cake cut for the legs & other various pieces... so although you can't tell in the pic... it is a GREAT turtle... oh btw it is chocolate & white marbled cake... yummy!

Also, here is one the table decorations I helped my sister put together... as you can see she used her Big Shot die cutting machine for the flowers. As I've said we can be a little over the top, but Renee really wants this to be memorable for Brooke... especially at this time dealing with the fire & being "homeless"... Renee wants this day to be so special... they really need a celebration of Brooke's accomplishment... and her parent's accomplishment too... parenting the hardest job in the world, but the rewards are priceless!

ok, I have rambled on enough... with a grateFUL HEART, carin

This cake and decorations are all so neat. I can't wait to get there and see them all in person. Looking forward to spending time this afternoon w/ family.

What a great celebration party. Everyone coming will be amazed at everything you girls have done to make it so special. Thanks for sharing with me. Great picture of you and Brooke. Today I am taking Sloane Verhagen to see the movie 'Up' - it is the new Disney/Pixar movie and they say it is really good. Have a beautiful day!!!! - Sharon
