Happy Birthday!!!

I'm a day early with a very special birthday surprise....
tomorrow is my dear friend Korin Sutherland's birthday!
 A group of her friends are getting 
together today for a fun early birthday party, since
 tomorrow is the fantastic 
April Release Blog Hop for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps,
 and we didn't want to take the spotlight from that.
 After all, our sweet girl deserves 
her OWN day in the spotlight! So please join us as we
celebrate Korin's birthday a little early! 
After all - you can never have too much celebration, can you?!?!

I've had the pleasure of spending time with Korin,
and she has got to be one of thenicest, caring, most compassionate
 people that I've ever had the pleasure of meeting!

I hope your day is as special as you are Korin!!

I used my newest set from SNSS -
and I just love it!!! The set is called "You"
(Also got the paper from Korin)

Below is the whole birthday party train....prepare yourself
for some fantastic cupcakes and ice cream from these talented ladies!!

And feel free to leave Korin some early birthday love, either on her blog,
