P is for Party...........


P is for Party - Pity Party that is!  I am a member of Mary Fish's downline group  - the Pals.  We have a great time staying connected on Facebook and our Convention Going Pals kept us informed with updates on FB last week.  Since so many of us were green with envy that we weren't at Convention, Margaret Moody suggested our own Pity Party.  We created a green card and posted it to our FB site where the convention goers could see what we were doing at home :)  It was silly but such fun to see the "green with envy" cards.  

I missed convention this year due to lots of baby stuff going on around here.  Some pictures from our baby brunch:



mmmmm........desserts.......


If you look carefully you will see that I labeled all of the food using the sweet little jar from Perfectly Preserved.  I am not a good cook and rely on my friends to supply me with simple - but fabulous - recipes so I wanted to give them credit!


And finally a shot of my baby girl as she awaits her baby girl - 5 more weeks!  She is with her cousin Sarah - can you tell that Sarah's mom and Erin's dad (my husband) are twins?

That has got to be the happiest pity card I've ever seen! Love how the colored drinks pop against all the green! What a gorgeous shower--beautiful settings, beautiful food and one beautiful mama-to-be. :-)

Your pity party card (green with envy) is too cute. It reminds me of everything we drank on our golf get-away... Speaking of party I'm still trying to get back "into" work mode from gal pals trips... whew! Too much fun, and your shower looks like everyone is having fun too. LOVE your little jar labels for the dishes. So clever.

Adorable card! Such a cute new stamp set.

Love the idea of using the 'jars' for 'food identification!'

Your daughter looks great.

Love this card Linda, so sorry we were not able to meet at this year's convention, maybe next year. That baby party looked fabulous, such a great touch with the little jars. Best of luck to your daughter!
