On another note...the girls and I accepted the challenge to raise funds to support the Hawaii Affiliate of the Susan G Komen for the Cure in its efforts to end breast cancer forever.  We will also take part in the Komen Hawaii Race for the cure on Sunday, October 16th at Kapiolani Park.  Your tax-deductible contribution will fund breast cancer education, screening and research programs.  It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause--Please consider supporting the cause by visiting here.  If you prefer, you can also send your contribution--checks payable to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Hawaii Affiliate to me.  Please e-mail me for details.  I invite you to join our team, Smiles for Millie!

Kurt, the girls and I are also participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk over the Ford Island Bridge...  Can't wait...It'll be our first time for this event--up to now we haven't been able to make the date.  Anyway, this event is on Saturday, October 29th.

Nothing like supporting a great cause, enjoying family time and getting some fresh air and exercise too! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

A Hello Kitty Birthday...

Yikes!  Has it been that long since my last post?!  Oh my!  How time flies!

I wanted to share a couple of photos from Leah's 7th Birthday...  I made her a Hello Kitty birthday cake and Mani/Pedi Caddies (want to think of a better name...but for now this will  have to do....I found a version online--can't remember the site.  Will post it when I find it again)

It's hard to believe our "baby" is 7 years old...  I can't imagine how that can possibly be when I don't feel a day older...ha, ha.  Anyway, here's the photos...

Leah requested I make her a cake...even though cupcakes were provided... ;)
She said she likes my frosting.

Here's part of the goodies for the girls to take home...

"back" view

side view

It was a Hello Kitty/mini manicure party at Cupcake Boutique at Ward Warehouse.  They are so wonderful!  Excellent to plan parties with!  The girls enjoyed pizza and pog, made beaded bracelets and had mini manicures.  Then a special visit from Hello Kitty herself and a photo session!  Thank you ladies!

I found some cute things to put in the caddies.  The purple bottle is nail polish remover.  I wanted pink, but they didn't have enough at the store.  In the front pocket is a little box of Hello Kitty "fake nails", a Hello Kitty emery board, Hello Kitty band aids, Hello Kitty nail polish, Hello Kitty Marshmallow candy.  In the back pocket a Hello Kitty plush key chain with a little lip gloss attached, and a Hello Kitty lip balm.  I also found some cute Hello Kitty foam toe separators, but I couldn't find enough for all the caddies.

I used Stampin' Up Melon Mambo card stock, Pretty in Pink Designer Series Paper and White Satin Ribbon.  The Melon Mambo retired polka dot ribbon would have been cute!  I also used the 1" circle punch.

I have more to share...will be back real soon!
Thank you for stopping by!

Stampin' Smiles,


It is time for another open house and I'd love to get together with you all for some stampin' smiles.

Many of you may or may not have seen the new Occasions Mini and the Sale-A-Bration Mini Catalogs.  It is always nice to touch and feel the new products in person, see some super samples and some fun ways to use the products. This is an invitation to our upcoming OPEN HOUSE on Saturday, January 15th from 11 am to 1 pm and on Sunday, January 16th from 10am to noon. There will be make & takes, tons of new samples and a great BOGO sale!

Looking forward to seeing you!
