Now for my turn:

  Kathy is celebrating her 60th birthday and the anniversary of her blog with this hop.  It is a two day hop so you will want to make sure you come back and check things out again tomorrow.  The first day we are celebrating the birthday and tomorrow we will be posting about different forms of cancer since Kathy is a survivor.  I will be posting about my husband's Melanoma.  But for today I have this layout of my daughter Katie's 21st birthday at her favorite restaurant the Olive Garden.  The staff came to our table and sang to her.  We had a great time.  As I am looking at this picture I realize I forgot to use brads!!  Now how did that happen?  LOL                                   

I am offering blog candy..It will be a nice selection of some fun embellishments so please leave a comment today and tomorrow for a double chance to win!!
