Being a grandmother is a true blessing...unbelievable!

Grandchildren - They are so my friends know our family grew very quickly with Michael's children, Elias, Ezera, and Emersyn. Then Mark got married and we were blessed with Joshua and Victoria. We already had our sweet Garrett and Jessica, so we have been incredibly blessed.

Elias and Emersyn share a birthday, their mother and I sat together and made their invitations. Since the children share a birthday, there is one party with two separate themes. This is what we came up with...

Emersyn's birthday theme is "Strawberry Shortcake" and Elias chose "Power Rangers".

Now for their birthday cards....
I'll start with Elias.
Again I used Penny Black stickers, however, I also used Penny Black "Zoophabets" to create Elias's name. The stickers and stamps rock. The paper is a shimmery orange cardstock from Archiver's. The layered paper is from a Creative Memories set called "Rockin Rainbow", and I must say it really is rocking. The colors are vibrant, the non-designed paper has two colors on each side, one being very bold the other is a softer shade of the same color. I really like that.
The paper is pretty old, I'm sure of it..too bad it is really nice.
Meet Elias....just look at the smile on this child's face, isn't it wonderful to see kids enjoying their time? He is a treasure, we adore him.

Emersyn....this is her card, I was up until the wee hours of the morning working on this.
This image didn't turn out as I had hoped, but
Em's card is supposed to be a flower garden.
I used diamond stickles on the wings.

Now, I saved some of the best for last....look at my sunshine. She was laughing with such joy today. You will never know what a blessing that is to this grandma's heart.

Happy birthday sweet Emersyn, we love you!
