It's my Birthday!! Birthday Blog Candy Give A Way!!

**Comments closed at 40**
Hello Crafty Friends!! I am so excited because today is my Birthday!

Yippee!! Last year when I turned 40,  I faced it head on and now that I am turning another year older I have decided to start it off with a smile!

This past year I have some how managed to cram in all the things on my to do lists, family, crafts,  running, working and everything in between. There were many times that I struggled but always managed to find my way. This will be my 5th year celebrating my birthday with my blogging friends, Thank you for all your support, comments, emails, texts and phone calls. I can't imagine my life any other way. And thank you for the support of my Skittles! I hope everyone has been enjoying the new colors and releases! 

Thanks for sharing the today with me!

Most of you know that My Step-Dad and I share the same Birthday, he is the BBQ King! He makes me the best BBQ baby back ribs ever! And he will make them anytime I ask him to,  I'm so spoiled! So this year I thought it would be fun to get him a Mounted light for his BBQ and a very cool BBQ mitt. And a handmade Happy Birthday Card to go along with it:

Barbeque Grill from Block Party Cricut Cartridge
Gingham Paper from Scrap Pile
Gingham Ribbon
Little sticky hot dog embellishments
Hemp, button, liquid Pearls, stickles, gem
Happy Birthday Stamp from Docerela
Spots color Skittle from DoubleClick
