Month-In-Review Swap

Another month gone by in 2009? Where is the time going? We'll be celebrating Thanksgiving here in the U.S. this Thursday. Then the shopping season begins on Friday. Did you know that the original Black Friday was actually reserved for September 24, 1869? It was a day when the markets crashed following a failed attempt by some financiers to corner the gold market and it led to a depression. You can read more about it at PBS.

Now it's used to draw people into stores with great deals and to get the retailers to a point where they make a profit after expenses. See? Now you have something to wow your friends with! Make sure you get those cameras out this week so you can scrap those memories with this month's quickpage made by Denise (aka wererich). Bonnie (aka bonbeechler) made you some gorgeous wordart too! Then run over to Rina Kroes' blog to get the coordinating template. Here are the items used to make this month's goodies:

It's a Special Day!

Another year has passed, taking with it all the difficult times and leaving us with the joys of memories. Today is Kimberly’s birthday (or Kimmi as she’s known to most). The Royal Muses team have created a special set of cards to share with Kimmi and you. We are giving them to you in plain format so that you can give them to your loved ones. Please join us in wishing “Her Royal Highness” a very Happy Birthday! Here is a poem I located that expresses all the thoughts we’ve had over the past week while creating these fabulous works of art.

Birthday Blessings By Joanna Fuchs

Instead of counting candles,
Or tallying the years,
Contemplate your blessings now,
As your birthday nears.
Consider special people
Who love you, and who care,
And others who’ve enriched your life
Just by being there.
Think about the memories
Passing years can never mar,
Experiences great and small
That have made you who you are.
Another year is a happy gift,
So cut your cake, and say,
"Instead of counting birthdays,
I count blessings every day!"

The following cards were created by The Royal Muses Team. You'll find their name above the card and then the gorgeous creation below. At the end you will find that we've provided a link to all of these fabu cards. If you have the time, please leave Kimmi a special message. I know she'd truly appreciate it. Special thanks to all the team members that created these great cards. **Happy Birthday Kimmi from all your Royal Muses. We Love You!**
