Good job on the widget! It worked well and it is such a cute mini book. I love the pockets and the bright colors!

Birthdays are so important to me that I like to make it my birthday week! It usually consists of a day with my hunny (usually seeing a musical), a party and being pampered the whole week! I would really be content with just spending my birthday with loved ones.

Thanks for the giveaway!

OOOOOOOHHHHH, so pretty! Love it!
My fav way to spend my bday is by sleeping in, then going to breakfast, then taking a ride with my dh on the back of his Harley, then maybe going somewhere fun, hmmmmmm how about the Grand Canyon, taking a little helicopter ride over, then zipping over to Niagra Falls to catch a view of some lovely water, then of course out to dinner someplace really scenic and lovely, have a wee little party with lots of friends and family and chocolate rapsberry cake and then a nice little ride home. :)
Realistically it's getting to sleep in an hour or 2 past my normal 5 AM get up time, and some chocolate cake. Maybe a bike ride with dh too. :) he he A girl can dream, can't she? ;)

Count me in on this PURPLE notebook. That's my favorite color, so I have to play for sure. For birthdays in our family, you get to pick what you want for dinner or pick a resturant. We get the whole family together on a weekend to celebrate and play games and eat ice cream and cake. Thanks for a chance.

Great job with getting the slide show thing set up...Works like a dream.

To me I love to spend my birthday with friends and family...I like to just relax and enjoy the pampering.

The mini book is gorgeous. Thanks for the offer.

I love this book! So many nooks and crannies and pockets and such!

I love to spend my birthday with my immediate family....not too much fuss. A good meal(not prepared by me!) and a few cards from loved ones telling me how much they love me!!! Well, if they wanted to shower me with gifts of a scrapping nature or a trip to a spa I wouldn't say no either!!! LOL! :D

Christina said...

The widget worked wonderfully!! And I love purple, so count me in!

How would I spend my birthday...In our family, we get the whole weekend. We get to choose the menu, movies, family night games, and color for the car game.

So first, I would pick purple cars. Then southern type foods for dinners, like country fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and fried okra. Family night would be spent playing Gin Rummy and watching Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Ooh love the mini book! Well, my favourite way to spend my birthday is to spend a bit of time on everything that I love doing, so getting pampered at a day spa with a facial/massage, spending some time eating a meal with friends, taking heaps of photos, and then scrapping about the day! :)

The best way to spend a birthday is with the ones you love; have a bar-b-q and enjoy a bit of company. Even though I'm over thirty...I still like being told Happy Birthday and even get an occasional song sung to me...that's always fun!!!

Karen said...

Wow widget works and double wow at the book !

I try not to count birthdays now but, given that my birthday is beg of March, it was once nice enough to go for a walk on the empty beach and I loved it so now that is what I always hope for.

Fab mini book!
I'm celebrating my 50th birthday in August with a bbq for friends and family. I've been through old address books and invited people who I haven't seen for years! To add to the excitement I'm off to Disney resort paris on the following day with my mum, sister and two teenage nephews. What better way to celebrate! As for my birthday itself I'm not sure what's happening but a friend of mine has been asking strange questions lately!! So, it looks like being a perfect birthday!!

Great minibook, just cute!!

My birthday has always been a blast! It's in the summer (just a month away...woot woot) and I always get to do the best things. I always try to spend it with someone I love- dear boyfriend, dad, mom, brother, friends, etc. This year my Dad and Brother are flying me across Canada to be with them on my birthday. I am uber excited!!!

I love that book. Tha's my favorite color.

Anyway, I love celebrating with my family and friends. I have a little celebration. My friends give me gifts which I open with them. Of course, we have our photos taken.

This year I have been invited to a BBQ with a group of friends. That was great! A wonderful party and no dirty dishes (for me) afterwards.
BTW - I love the book!
Greetings from Germany

What a Great Mini! So pretty!!! My dream birthday would be to spend 10 days with my scrapping friends on a cruise to just scrap and chat the days away, 10 days of mommy and me time with my girls at Disney, 10 days with my dh at the beach and 10 days hanging with my family that I am so close to. I guess I want it all. lol

I'm a June baby so my birthday typically consists of something Summery. I love to steal the day off of work. My boyfriend planned a get away trip for us to a park with a waterfall about 45 minutes away. We arrived, hiked to the waterfall, climbed the wall (;o)) to get a closer look and checked out all the wild life. There were turtles and cat fish, it was gorgeous. We decided to take a few more hikes around the park. Eventually we went back to the car for a mini picnic. Chomping on all my favorite goodies. Went for another hike around the park to view the gorgeous trees and forest. That evening we had a small cookout at the park before heading back home, where I had a lovely ice cream cake waiting for me. It was one of my best birthdays.

I am an Xmas eve baby, so the best thing to do is to spend the evening with family & some warm drinks; laughing and watching that christmas eve snow fall.

What a beautiful Mini Book. We don't have a tradition for my birthday. But I try to figure out a day close to my birthday that I can have the day to myself and scrap!

This is easy! Double chocolate cake covered with a chocolate ganache and a side of vanilla ice-cream. Candles are optional! As long as there's cake it's a good birthday in my book!
