Upline Birthday Celebration!

Yesterday was my wonderful upline Pat's birthday. She got to spend it at Invesco Field listening to Barack Obama accept the Democratic nomination for president. I know that it was a great experience for her. But today, we are meeting to take her to lunch (it's a surprise) and I made a few things for her and for the other gals that will be joining in the celebration.

I got the idea for these notepads from Angie on her blog Chic' n Scratch. She used rectangular coasters and I used SU's 5 x 7 1/2 chipboard. They feature new designer papers from SU and grosgrain ribbon from SU along with some recycled paper Post-It note pads that matched the colors of the paper really well I thought. Plain old generic black binder clips covered with coordinating dp finishes off these cute gifts. I think they are fun!

The love note boxes contain 6 notes and envelopes. The paper is PTI and SU and the alphabet is SU's Lovely Letters and the daisy is from Inkadinkado in their Personal Impressions collection.

Her birthday card features dp from the new Basic Grey Ambrosia collection - ooohh do I love that stuff!

I've been a bit of a bad blogger this week - playing catch up on a lot of things that got put on the back burner with our vacation and my trip to AK last month. Thanks for hanging in there with me! I appreciate you!

What a great mix Chris! Loving that Ambrosia but I have yet to see it. Maybe I should sneak in over at the LSS...

I love these gifts. I have been trying to think of something to give my fellow teachers as a back to school gift and the clip boards would be perfect. Great job!
