Happy Birthday Rissa Roo!!

Okay, so today is almost done but I am getting this in under the wire.  Today is the 5th birthday of my sweet niece Marissa!  Together with Maya, they are the M&Ms.  These two are fabulous cousins and friends!  I guess that's because there is only 9 days age difference between them.

Ruby Roo is the sweetest and funniest girl!  I love her!!  I love her especially when she is singing Ruby Tuesday to me! 

"Goodbye Ruby Tuesday. 
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still Im gonna miss you..."

Anyway, here is sweet Marissa in her "last day to be 4" picture.  Don't you just love those blue eyes?!?!

And here are the cards Maya & I made for her....

First up is Maya's using the kids2love set from The Stamps of Life.....

And a shot of the inside.  Don't ya just love her little girl printing?!?! 

"girls are rainbows" is the message she insisted on writing.  Not sure why......

And here is the card I made for her using my new set from My Favorite Things - First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics & Stamp Set.  Love it!!!

And now, here is the reason why this post is so late today.  I bought a new shelf the other day in order to get my scrappy space organized.  (long story with the shelf.  NOT FUN to put together!!!)  Anyway, I spent the day neck-deep in scrappy goodness - cleaning, purging & organizing!!  It feels good and I really hope I can keep it this way!  Looking at these pictures I actually have a table.  It has been a LONG time since I have seen more than about 12 inches square of it.

And the shelf that caused major hassle but is so very handy! 
And my baby girl who insisted on being in the picture!!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by!  Have a fabulous weekend!
We are off to the beach in the morning to celebrate Rissa Roo's birthday!
