Kimi's Super Surprise Birthday Blog Hop


We at LoveBug Creations are super excited to share Kimi's special day with you! Since we are mother-daughters and we share this blog, it's been rather a challenge to keep this quiet, but hopefully we've surprised Happy Birthday, Sweetie, and Little Sis!!

First of all we want to say thank you to the CT and Guests for participating in this!  Here's the line-up of talented "buggies" who are showcasing their affection for Miss Birthday Girl:

I (Missy) bet you are picking yourself up the floor with such a shock - me crafting!  Yes, I did and I absolutely had the best time using the newest Rumple Ribbon collections to make you a twisted rumple ribbon bracelet - love the colors and love you!

Aren't those colors gorgeous!! Great job, Missy!!

Well, Kim, another year older and yet I (Mama LoveBug) remain the same - 39 so you must have been born when I was 8.......hummmm, well, maybe that's not quite right!?!  I can still remember you as a child screaming at strangers and hating to get your hair washed; pointing out "people in buggies" as we traveled to Ft Wayne; being sad when your sisters told you were adopted (which wasn't true) as they showed you the birth certificate of a Cabbage Patch doll (hey, you couldn't read yet so you didn't know they were messing with you); and begging GG to open just one more present at Christmas time when you were supposed to be in bed, waiting for Santa to drop by! And what about the time you did something unmentionable at the dinner table when Jennifer had her first boyfriend as a guest.........ah yes, there are so many memories of you growing up - Daisy Scouts, Synchronized Swimming, Lightshines, the saxophone, and cheerleading.  You've grown into a wonderful daughter, wife, and mother.  We are blessed to have you in our lives!

I (Mama LoveBug) know you are a very loyal Hicksville Ace's Fan so I made you a paper brooch to wear at the kids' events - can you spot the LoveBug Creations White Simply Sheer?

Next, I spent a lot of time viewing tutorials to learn to make a 3-D paper armoire - can you spot Mama's Mesh and our new Dahlia rumple ribbon? Like the faux drawer and the handmade buttons?
And what's an armoire without a tag - the new greeting card for the b-day gal? Do you see the new Blue Bells rumple ribbon too?
You are truly Queen for the Day!!

We hope you like your gifts!
Happy Birthday - there will be paddlings with the cheeseboard later and potato soup to make it better!!.....LOL
Bye from Missy and Mama!
Our next surprise blog spot to check out is with the "flower guru" TANYA
