Woooowee! We are having some fun! This party is just a-rockin’! If you haven’t entered for a chance to win some yummy gift cards, do that in yesterday’s post.

I gave my girls the assignment to think outside the birthday box for this party. I gave them the challenge of making a fun gift or packaging or cards or anything that would be awesome for a birthday for that special someone in your life.

Layle asked if I could make a phrase for her project: Today Is A Good Day To Have A Good Day.

I, of course, was happy to oblige…because look what she made!

i. love. this.

The whole ensemble is just beautiful! Love the combination of the frame with the gold lettering….and the star on top. I would love this as a birthday gift. (hint hint. ;) )

Here’s what Layle has to say:

You know when you see something and it spurs an idea and you just can’t get it out of your head?  That’s this project! A few months ago I was watching a show on HGTV and I saw the saying ‘Today is a Good Day to Have a Good Day’ on a piece of wall art.  That was the first time I’d seen/heard the saying; I love the meaning of it – it’s up to you to decide what kind of day you’re going to have, every day.  I emailed Kerri right away and asked if she would create a cut file with that saying and voila, she did!  Just love that about Miss Kerri :)  Anyhoo, I knew I wanted to take that saying and frame it.  I picked up the white frame at Michaels and used that lovely piece of sky patterned paper (by Simple Stories) for the background.  I cut the saying out of gold glitter cardstock, adhered to the paper and inserted it behind the glass.  I thought the frame needed a little something, so I added the metal gold heart to the top.  Quick and easy project, but super meaningful.  This now sits front and center in our family room to remind me, and hopefully my husband and our 2 teenage boys, that it’s up to you to make today a good day!

So true Miss Layle! Attitude is everything. And now, I think I need to go make me one of those. :)


The normal Two-Fer Tuesday is on hiatus this week due to our current monster sale, but we do have a brand new kit for ya! It is a possibility we may see this in action. It was requested. But sometimes things don’t always work out like we plan, so I’m not making any promises. :)


Just some yummy words to use for a plethora of projects. And they don’t even have to be food related. :)

Got more great stuff comin’….all week long, so stay tuned!
