We're Having a Party ....

I'm having a surprise party for my brothers in December.   My much older brother, Allen, turns 60 in January, and my younger brother, Bruce, turns 50 in December.  I'm in the middle - closer to the low end!!  (Don't worry ... they don't look at my blog.   They're brothers right?).

I am serving cupcakes for dessert and made some toppers from old photos.  Here's a sample:

I have about 24 different ones.   Are these the cutest?

I know that Al will especially appreciate the one when he was 16 showing off his 6 pack abs!!!

I just scanned the old photos; printed them off  9 to a page, and cut them out with my circle cutter.  I also cut red and green paper circles with my cutter.  Glued a photo to a coloured circle with a toothpick between.  Voila ... toppers!


  1. Oh what a sweet idea - your blog is very lovely dear Sharon!!! And i thank you so much, for your nice comment!!!!
