So tell me what you want, what you really, really want...

So this week I have been planning my friend Christy's surprise 40th birthday party. It was tonight and it went off without a hitch! She had not a clue. I love that. We all even scrapped together last night and no one let anything out of the bag. My friend Amy helped (well did it herself really) make a video which I think she loved. We put her life in pictures to the sound of the classic Spice Girls! LOL So tell me what you want, what you really, really want. I'll tell you what I want, what I really, really want. I wanna, I wanna... Makes me want to drag out my Scary Spice and Ginger Spice Barbies! I was seriously in love with Mel B's afro. It was so HUGE!

Anyway, the party is over. Christy still has til Tuesday before she turns the ripe ol' age of 40 and I told her to enjoy her last days in her thirties. lol I was hoping to cap off this birthday weekend with a trip to the movies to see Mama Mia but it isn't on in the big city of Independence yet. Sad times. Christy and I saw the musical last year in Tulsa. We didn't really know each other then so that is really the begining of our friendship I guess I would say. I'll show you all pictures later. I have to retrieve them from the other girls first.

So I have a layout to show you all. The one I did with a bunch of scraps that got it's inspiration from my Inspire ATC swap.

This layout is about what inspires me. I'm inspired by color, especially bright colors. Nature, the way my birdies tweet and the personalities of my 4 cats. Like how did God know to do that? I'm inspired by faith, recovery, love and giving. I'm also inspired by a challenge. So what inspires you?

Hope you all are having a great weekend. Catch ya' later!
