It's birthday time!

Myrna and Verna (Mary Ann & Shannon) are celebrating birthdays this week. Mary Ann's is Sunday and mine is on Tuesday. If you remember from one of my previous posts we were known as Myrna and Verna, twin sisters during the shop hop in June. On Thursday we celebrated at the shop by ordering take out from Art City Trolley. They have the best salad in town and the most delicious carrot cake. We also had cupcakes from the Sweet Tooth Fairy. I think we were on a sugar high all afternoon. We had a blast celebrating another year together.
This is the gift Mary Ann gave me. Isn't it the truth, we have so much fun working and sharing many laughs together. I am so glad that I have such a friend as Verna! If I were to get in trouble she's the one I would want to do it with, just so I could say "WOW, that was fun".

Our cupcakes,

and carrot cake.

And excitement was in the mail today. I received a package all the way from the Netherlands.
Who else could it be from but Yvonne. She was so thoughtful in remembering my birthday.
Everything was wrapped so cute.
I couldn't even wait to get cleaned up before I opened my gifts, that's how excited I was. Yvonne just celebrated her birthday on the 1st of September. She sent me a birthday favor from her big 50th birthday bash.
One would think Yvonne was sending back her Utah quilt, but she took the picture of the quilt and used it for the cover of a book that she put together. In the book were pictures we had taken when they were here in August. I had a hard time holding back the tears. It was a "picture" perfect gift to remember our meeting and all the fun times we had while they were in Utah. I will cherish this always. She also knows I love jewelry, she sent me a really awesome necklace as well. She really spoiled me. Here is an example of some of the pages in the book. These couple of pages are from the quilt show here in Spanish Fork, where I presented her with the Utah quilt I made for her. It also has the article which appeared in the Spanish Fork Press telling of our blogging relationship.
These pages are from our adventure to the Strawberry valley. We stopped and let Alex and Yvonne shoot. They loved every minute of it. I am so glad I have something to remember these fantastic outings by. Thank you Yvonne and Alex for such a special birthday gift. You just made my day even happier.
