A Survivor Celebration!

Yesterday marked the 2 year anniversary since I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I mentioned in my last post about having a "survivor" celebration. The party was last night and boy, did we ever have a good time!
I changed a few things on the cupcake tier and reused it for my party.
I wrote out 42 random facts about me to share. (In case you're wondering where the 42 comes in, that's how old I am :)
Party decorations made from coffee filters and cardstock die-cuts. I went to my local scrapbook store and cut the breast cancer ribbons myself using their die-cut machine. You buy the paper (55 cents) and the first 20 cuts are free. Not a bad deal!
My sweet cousin made this adorable "Celebrate Life" banner using her Cricut.
I wasn't expecting any gifts at all but several people brought some very nice things. Not pictured is a Pandora bracelet and pretty charm. The bracelet had to be sized. Some family friends also made a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation in my name. Sooo, so sweet!
Our wonderful pastor and his family brought this beautiful rose bush. Now I've just gotta find the perfect spot in my yard to plant it!
I can't begin to tell you how loved and special I felt last night! I am truly blessed to have an amazing family and wonderful friends!
