Reasons to Celebrate

Reason No. 1: She's 8 years old todayShe's happy, healthy, sweet, obedient, generous, kind, funny and such a good kid - I have so many reasons to be thankful.

We had a few school friends over for some cake, ice cream, ribena and shrink plastic fun. (Laine's has some in stock right now by the way).

She made these:
and I made this - couldn't resist joining in the fun.Reason No. 2: My First Time...
I got this in the mail....
(Stamper's Sampler Aug/Sep 2009 issue)
Then started jumping up and down like a mad woman (not kidding - ask my husband) when I saw what was inside:
The fine print reads: "All samples on this page were created by Sharon Ong who lives in Singapore" - that's me!!!!!!!!!!!

All this is possible because of Michele (head Onion), who suggested I send my work in to them - wouldn't have even considered it if not for her - thank you Michele

The jumping up and down has stopped but the grinning is going to be around for at least a little while longer I think...
