Smashing birthday

If you are a regular follower of my blog you will know that I celebrated my birthday last week.  I was in Krakow in Poland and spent the day sightseeing, walking and then had a meal at a Mexican to finish.  It was a really lovely day and after recent birthdays being some what melancholy that is a really big thing for me. 
I was also overwhelmed by the messages and cards that I received, thank you everyone x

Yesterday I was surprised by friends with a cake and presents by way of a late celebration over a Raclette (Swiss cheese meal), so that was lovely too...

So of course must share some of the cards with you along with my Smash book pages (as promised)...

Featureing the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies of course :).

I'm now up to date with my travel Smash book, with just a few snippets to add when time.  I have lots of other bits and pieces that I am looking forward to 'Smashing' into my general Smash book, but have yet to properly start it. 

Of course, I have used a few Stampin' Up! products, can you spot them?  Here's a close up to help:

I've used one of the label stamps from the Apothecary Art stamp set (excluding the flowers) to make a record of my day and also included one of the sentiments from the same set inked in Chocolate Chip onto Melon Mambo to co-ordinate with the lettering on the left hand page.

Here are a few of the handmade cards that I received too...

A gatefold card from Pam, beautiful.
Birthday cupcakes from Vicki, she's getting the bug!

I've saved the cards made with Stampin' Up! products for other posts, as I have been away and not had time to make much and am struggling a little for post content!  So, check back to see these later this week.
