    You can’t plan this for yourself, but I would love for someone to throw me a surprise party one day!!

  • 18

    My step-dad and I have birthdays 2 days apart, so every year we go to dinner to celebrate. I would plan my next birthday the same as every year.

  • 19
    Alice says:

    My family is spread out pretty far from us so just being able to get everyone together in one place would be a wonderful birthday gift. I’ve always enjoyed a quaint bed and breakfast in the country. I think it would be lovely to spend my birthday there with my family.

  • 20
    Amanda says:

    Well, given that my birthday is just days away…I don’t have any plans other than to spend time in my art room and enjoy what my littles plan and make for me. IF I had been on the ball I would have taken a day trip to Paris the day before just to people watch and practice street photography.

  • 21
    Miriam Prantner says:

    I’d love to have all my friends fly in for a weekend somewhere relaxing so we could just hang out – and it would be all inclusive so no on has to cook!

  • 22
    Marci Snee says:

    Vegas and new PTI stuff waiting for me when I got home. My birthday is in a couple weeks!

  • 23
    Sandy Rizzo says:

    I would travel to a mountain retreat with a gorgeous view for lots of rest and relaxation! Then again I think I might stay home and spend the day stamping with your beautiful products!

  • 24
    Denise C. says:

    It would be great to have all my children and grandchildren in one place to celebrate my birthday!! They live all over the country which makes it hard to get everyone together.

  • 25
    sarah t. says:

    My next birthday is going to be spent at a banquet for my son’s swim team (lucky me!). However, if I had a choice, it would involve lunch with my whole family, with no one worrying about being anywhere else for once.

  • 26
    Karen says:

    Ahhhh, to plan my own birthday would be so fun. Some coffee and breakfast with my husband and the 5 kids first. Then they would all do chores involving deep cleaning around the house, while I’d have the day all to myself to play in my craftroom without guilt!!! Since I”m fantasizing, my husband would come in around noon with a prepared meal and would encourage me to visit my favorite crafting sites (PTI is tops, of course) and buy all of my wishlist items. Doesn’t that sound lovely?? Tee hee – what a fun question!

    My daughter and I both have “end with 0” birthdays this year and I’m taking her and my daughter-in-law to Hawaii for a week around the date of her birthday (May), but it will be my celebration as well!

  • 28
    Pam Young says:

    My kids and I have talked for years about taking a trip together. For my birthday I’d like to go to Paris or Italy!! Dream big or go home!!

  • 29
    ljhart says:

    A family trip to the Grand Canyon. It’s on the “bucket list” and since my brother recently died at 49, I’ve embraced getting older. I hope to celebrate many more birthdays, and why not make a family vacation out of it.

  • 30
    sano says:

    I would love to celebrate in a cabin in the woods where it is cool and nice with my sweet hubby!

  • 31

    My next birthday is 49 but the one after that….I wanna go on a big family trip, hopefully an Alaskan cruise!

  • 32
    Sharon W. says:

    Most family birthdays include a family meal and cake, usually at home, sometimes out. I think a day trip with the family to somewhere fun would be great! I think I will plan that this year? That would include about 17 of us!

  • 33
    Jill A says:

    I would plan a tropical getaway with my whole family. Enjoy the beach–sun–family!!!!!!

  • 34
    DGolly says:

    I would get on a plane and go on a trip throughout Europe. It would be great to go without any timeframe or worries about home.

  • 35
    Karen B. says:

    I would invite my out of state identical twin sister to come and celebrate with me…I don’t care where we are or what we do!

  • 36
    Sue D says:

    Great variety in this release and love the new stitching dies.
    For my birthday I would like my family to come visit our farm. It would be nice to take a walk in the woods, have a cookout and have fun with the grandkids in my craft room.

  • 37
    Kristin R. *jcmom04* says:

    My favorite birthday celebration so far was our cruise when I turned 40. We are already planning our next cruise (in a few years) and I just happened to plan it the year I turn 50- we will go on an Alaskan cruise! Very excited about that one!

  • 38
    Karen Walker says:

    Paris is always a good idea….

    I would want to go as a family to a good restaurant and come back home and EAT CAKE!!

  • 41
    Vikki H says:

    Since it’s in February we usually try to go somewhere warm so I choose Thailand beaches.

  • 42
    Margie C says:

    I would love to be in Europe with my family!

  • 43
    Birgit says:

    I would bring my son and daughter in law home and have a big family gathering.

  • 44
    Joan F. says:

    I’m sure it would involve my family in some way. We don’t see each other too often (once every couple of years), so it would be fun to spend time with one or all of them.

  • 45
    Kristie G. says:

    I would love to visit more of the beautiful USA with my lovely family! Time seems to fly by so fast. Need to make more memories with my children before they leave the nest. πŸ™‚

  • 46
    Mary Ann Evans says:

    I would visit my son and family in Japan.

  • 47
    Keysha Sain says:

    It would include my family and somebody’s beach – including the fruity drinks with umbrella’s in them!

  • 48
    Cris M says:

    I would like to make a huge bouquet of coloured balloons, go to a beautiful place and take pictures of me being carried away with the balloons!

  • 49
    maryrose says:

    My next birthday is a big one. Starts with a 5, ends with an OH! I’d love to take a trip with my mom and sisters for my birthday…maybe a long weekend somewhere warm.

  • 50
    Tanja S. says:

    I would love a High Tea with all the friends and family I love, followed by a trip to a beautiful garden or a gorgeous Art Gallery. Better still a High Tea in a beautiful garden location, in a state not as dry as where I live.

  • 51
    Cindy O says:

    My favorite is a quiet lunch or dinner with my husband.

  • 52
    Fritz says:

    I could never top the party my daughter threw for me on my last birthday (50th!). She planned a Scottish themed surprise party complete with Scottish food, music and, the icing on the cake so to speak, a bagpiper! Every time I thought it was as good as it could get, she surprised me with something even more wonderful. All of my best friends were there including the last surprise, a friend who had just moved 11 hours away 2 weeks prior flew in just for my birthday. AND the men wore kilts! It was, without a doubt, the best birthday ever.

  • 53
    Donna M. says:

    No travel. No work. Just me, at home, doing what I love!

  • 54
    Betty H. says:

    A few days at the ocean with an ocean front room!

  • 55
    Donnah says:

    I like to shop, craft, eat cake and spend time with family and close friends

  • 58
    Betty Sue says:

    It would definitely be to travel somewhere wonderful!! Italy maybe??

  • 59
    Jackie Killorn says:

    Spending girl time with my best friend and getting pampered.

  • 60
    adele says:

    Hugs and good wishes from my sweet husband, kids and grandkids. The best would be being all together somewhere, anywhere, with plenty of laughter (we’re good at that!)

  • 61
    Rebecca says:

    Sand, Ocean breeze, and Margaritas!

  • 62
    Victoria h says:

  • 63
    Penny P. says:

    I’m going to be 50 this year so I hope to spend it with my closest family and friends!

  • 64
    Patricia F. says:

    I would love to take a trip to Banff nestled in the Canadian Rockies with my entire family via the Canadian Railway. It has always been a dream of mine! The vistas are breathtaking & the trip by rail is scenic & restful. Maybe one day!!!

  • 65
    Lea Ann H. says:

    If my next birthday were to be a “dream” celebration, my family and I would travel to Australia. I was able to spend a year there as an exchange student decades ago. I’d love to introduce my family to that beautiful country, and to my host sister (whose birthday is the same day!) and her family. Other than that once in a lifetime birthday, my ideal celebration would be a quiet day at home, with a homemade cake and a simple meal.

  • 66
    Rita says:

    I get to spend lots of quality time with family, so a special day for me would be a day with my friend, Dianne. If I planned my next birthday with her, it would a day of shopping and surprises, ones I’ve planned for her and vise versa. She knows me so well and is so thoughtful in how she finds ways to make me smile. I imagine that we would meet up at a coffee shop, head to the book store, then move on to an office supply store, and finally a local stamping store. After a full day of laughter and girl talk, we would wind down the day in my craft room, creating with any new stamps and dies I’ve added to my collection since our last visit. Any day I get to spend with her is a special day to celebrate.

  • 67
    Diana F says:

    I’m not real big on celebrating my birthday, though I do love celebrating others birthdays. I think I would like to keep it simple and just have the entire family together to celebrate being with each other.

  • 68
    cindy c says:

    Well my birthday is Sunday, but it’s a little late this time……but I would love to go on a little road trip with my family, head up north, do something fun!

  • 69
    geri says:

    A warm sunny day…family and friends…the outdoors…a good old fashioned family picnic with lots of laughter and fun!!! Where I live, I would need to celebrate it about 3 months late to pull that off!!! Beautiful inspiration, once again, this month!!!

  • 70
    Shelly says:

    Well I would go out to eat somewhere for sure…depends what mood I am in as to where. Sometimes I crave Chinese and sushi other times burgers. It would be great to go out not only one meal of the day but all three! Breakfast and lunch as a whole family and then have someone watch the kids so hubby and I could have supper out ourselves. I would spend the hours in between the meals in my craft room with music on and no interruptions using a whole bunch of new PTI goodies. Thanks for a great release and the opportunity to win.

  • 71
    kelly says:

    i am turning 50 on my next birthday so i am planning to walk a marathon to mark the occasion. at the actual time i hope to be on a little getaway with some fine people.

  • 72
    Jayell says:

    Birthdays should always involved cake but apart from that as long as I’m with my nearest and dearest I don’t mind how we celebrate.

  • 73
    abrash says:

    How about a great day of stamping and crafting!!

  • 74
    Jane C. says:

    Today IS my birthday and for once I would LOVE to win the
    Papertrey ink question contest! Aside from the obvious, I
    would love spending my birthday on a beach vacation with my husband and kids just kicking back and relaxing.

  • 75
    Chandana says:

    Definitely go on a National Geographic Antarctica Cruise & tour with my immediate family! This has been a dream for sometime now….

  • 78
    Vicki A says:

    My birthday is in December when everyone is busy getting ready for Christmas. My plan for my birthday celebration would be a relaxed dinner with our children and grandchildren.

  • 79
    JohannaM says:

    As my birthday is in November, a garden party is out of the question. However, I’d still like to have one, so I’d try to create a similar atmosphere indoors with the help of flowers, fairy lights and mismatched vintage tableware and furniture. All my nearest and dearest would be invited, and the party would be an uncomplicated and relaxed little gathering.

  • 80
    Judie A says:

    Definitely travel to a new place and have a meal of local food!

  • 81
    Linda M says:

    I would plan a birthday where my kids (who all live out of town) could join us in one big house on a vacation, maybe Colorado or on a beach somewhere, but just all together playing and relaxing.

  • 82
    Teresa beg says:

    Would love a trip to a art retreat. All my family around.

  • 83
    Jan Elmore says:

    A week off from work to plant my garden would be step one. Oh, and several days of treating myself to fancy coffees!

  • 84
    Amy Kolling says:

    I’m not a big celebrater of my birthday……I like casual with no surprises or hoopla. For my kids however, I love to spoil them with a party every year!

  • 85
    Audrey says:

    I actually have a birthday coming up in a few weeks and I will be spending it with my family, having a nice dinner ( that someone else will prepare ) i always like to have party favours and loot bags for birthdays, mostly because my grandson loves that.

  • 86
    Donna Phelan says:

    Hmmmm my next birthday I will be 55 on Christmas morning…..How about a BIG Birthday Bash with all my friends and family at The Chatham Bars Inn, an iconic place to stay on the water here on Cape Cod! Providing that cost is no object lol Let’s make it a week long celebration straight through the New Year! C’mon Lottery!!!

  • 87
    Kristi says:

    Birthday trip with my family to Arizona to see family and The Grand Canyon. That would be a perfect gift.

  • 88
    Tricia T says:

    Just not having to cook for the day would be wonderful! : )

  • 89
    Jan G says:

    I would love to find a nice quiet place with no one except my husband and just relax. And when I return home to find my house completely clean! So not going to happen!

  • 90
    debra f says:

    With my birthday right around the corner, I have nothing planned! But if I were to plan something for my birthday, it would be a destination family reunion! I would just love for everyone to stop what they are doing, take a break and to get together to celebrate family.

  • 91

    A gathering of family and friends at a quiet lakeside resort where no-one had to worry about cooking or cleaning up afterwards.

  • 92
    Vicki Finger says:

    A nice dinner at Mahogany Prime, a good bottle of wine (although my opinion of good apparently isn’t a wine connoisseur’s) and my favorite cheesecake from my girlfriend’s family recipe that has been handed down through the years and makes cheesecake factory’s seem pale by comparison. It has 4 1/2 blocks of cream cheese in it and some other secret ingredients.

  • 93
    kc3 says:

    Just to be with family and friends……there is nothing more important.

  • 94
    Leigh Penner says:

    I would invite my friends and family over for a bar-be-que in our backyard. πŸ™‚

  • 95

    Definitely a trip somewhere outside the US. Just me and my hubby. Italy, maybe.

  • 96
    Dee says:

    I will be 60 on my next birthday and I can think of nothing better than having all of my family together to celebrate the day! Oh! and maybe have a yellow cake with chocolate icing πŸ™‚

  • 97
    June says:

    I would plan my own party with family and friends. Instead of them bringing me gifts I would give them a gift because it’s always more rewarding to give than receive.

  • 98
    Sandy says:

    I would love to rent a large pontoon boat on Torch Lake and have my children and grandchildren spend the day with us grilling and swimming, fishing and relaxing on the water!

  • 99

    I want to go to Dave & Busters with friends!

  • 102
    Donna Gourley says:

    Wow…no one’s really ever asked me how I’d like to celebrate my birthday…hmmm…I think it would definitely involve a trip to the beach (even in March) just for the getaway aspect. Of course, if we could incorporate some stamping time that would be even better!

  • 103
    Sarah says:

    A lovely day with my family…..

  • 104
    Julie Bitner says:

    Oh, definitely a trip with my family. Somewhere we have never been before!

  • 105
    annheidel says:

    Either a trip to Europe or a big party with a live band and all my friends/family.

  • 106
    Amy McCue says:

    Planting flowers, eating cake and having a glass of wine. I would also like to do a little crafting, of course!

  • 107
    carol says:

    My perfect birthday would see me spending it with my husband and family. My niece and nephew would help me blow out the *many* candles on the biggest carrot cake (yes, with cream cheese icing) you can imagine! Thank you for the gift certificate opportunity and all the inspiration that accompanied this amazing release!

    If I could plan my next birthday, I would just get a great cake and spend it with my hubby and kids. I would also be sure each of them made me a card. That would be a great birthday.

  • 111
    Becky M says:

    I’d absolutely love to visit Ireland for my next birthday! However, I know that’s not going to happen… maybe in 20 years! I’d settle for a day off work and a nice dinner. πŸ™‚

  • 112
    Amie Hamman says:

    My birthday is in the summer so I would love to have a big cookout with my family and friends. We would spend the day eating and having fun and at night, light a fire and roast marshmallows!

    It would be a Girls get-a-way… all enclusive tropical location! Can you please make that happen? Hugs!

  • 117
    Martha B. says:

    My birthday is just around the corner, and i haven’t given it much thought about celebrating, but since you are asking I would involve Family and Friends, a get toether for some food (cake) and laughs.

  • 118
    lisa808 says:

    I would plan to go to Venice for my birthday. We had planned to go for my 40th birthday and weren’t able to. It is unlikely we can go this year, but it’s nice to think about.

    Vacation to a tropical island

    A trip with my family would be a great way to celebrate!

    Cristina says:

    I wish I could spend it with friends and family, but since they are split in two continents it would be really hard to make it happen!

  • 123
    Kim says:

    If I could plan anything for my next birthday, it would be a gift for my Mom–who was obviously there that day! I would take her on an Alaskan cruise–something she has always wanted to do–and just spend the mother/daughter time together. πŸ™‚

  • 124
    Cyndie says:

    Wonderful release! I’m a homebody, so my ideal birthday does not involve going any place; just being home but not having to cook dinner would be nice!

  • 125
    Dana W says:

    Assuming money was no option and my schedule was clear, I would go to Scotland!

  • 126

    I would love to spend it with my whole family on a weekend getaway!! Thanks for the chance to play : )

  • 127
    Katie Skiff says:

    Beautiful creations ladies!! Birthday’s always involve family and I would add in my friends. As fun as something exotic would be, I would much rather be gathered around a fire pit, spending time with loved ones.

  • 128
    Donna Hoppe says:

    Birthdays for me are more about the people I get to spend them with than what we get to do. It would be great to get my favorite people together in a big cabin by the lake. Great release this month.

  • 129
    Liz mcallister says:

    Being with my whole family is special since my parents are aging and my daughter is becoming an adult. The other things about a party don’t matter!

    This year my entire family will be at the beach: kids, spouses, and grandkids. We have three birthdays that week, so we’ll have lots of cake!

  • 134
    Kristina says:

    My hubby already planned my perfect birthday for my 40th last December. He surprised me with a trip to New York with two of our best friends. We saw numerous shows and spent New Years Eve there. It was perfect! Wonderful release, ladies!!! Love all the beautiful projects and ideas.

  • 135
    Karen Kochjar says:

    My perfect party would be to have all of my family together. We would be laughing and playing games. Nice music, good food and even some card making.?

  • 136
    Claudia says:

    If I planned my own birthday, it would involve a trip to somewhere mountainous, with all of my friends, and there would be a dinner at a fabulous restaurant where we’d stay until closing drinking fine wine. Then we’d go for a hike in the morning. All of my gifts would be PTI gift cards.

  • 137
    Debbie says:

    Any celebration that I planned for myself would have to include travel…travel to islands, other continents, other states, other counties! Just travel! That’s why my family doesn’t let me plan my own parties!

  • 138

    If money was no object, I’d take my whole family to Disney World for my birthday! But since that’s probably not realistic, I’ll just be with my family here at our home. πŸ™‚

    with my kiddos? Disney world. Totally. Without my kiddos? My hubby and I have never taken a really honeymoon-ish trip, and we’ve talked about going to Mexico for a couple of years. I think ocean breezes, daiquiris, and sunscreen sounds like the perfect way to celebrate my birthday.

    My next birthday is two days before our 25th anniversary and we are going to Ireland!! We will be staying in a small cottage by Waterford. Much more special for the birthday than we would normally do and I am sure it will be lovely!

  • 282
    Edie B says:

    Birthdays are special in our family. We usually plan an activity and/or a special dinner. I like to do a family outing for mine. One of my favorites is playing putt putt golf!

    I’d be flying to the other side of the world with DH to spend my birthday with our two sons and their partners in the Australian sunshine!

  • 289
    Janet S says:

    My next birthday would be spent renting a large house on a beach and having all our kids and grandkids there with us.

  • 290
    Holly Havnaer says:

    Well, being that my 46th birthday was yesterday, this question is close to my heart! I’m sick, have pink eye and had to give and correct final exams all day yesterday until 9:30 pm. The only thing I really wanted to do on my birthday was play in my craft room all day ;).
    Love the new release!

  • 291
    betty lou says:

    It would involve my family and me being in a cabin in the mountains enjoying the snow and each other!!

  • 292
    mary t says:

    i would want to take another trip to Vietnam, this time with my mother and sister.

  • 293
    Tracy K says:

    My next birthday would be very similar to what we do every year. We celebrate both boys’ birthdays along with mine (one shares my birthday and one is a few days before) with family and lots of good food.

  • 294
    Peege04 says:

    For my birthday, a dinner out with family, some thoughtful cards from my children and a PTI gift certificate would be perfect.

  • 295
    Meg C says:

    Going somewhere with my husband we have not been to before and attending a hot air balloon festival. Maybe go up in one!

  • 296
    Heather says:

    I would definitely go all out-tiramisu in Italy with my husband!

  • 297

    Planning my next birthday would involve my passport, an airplane and my husband to share it all with.

  • 298
    Julia L. says:

    If I could afford it, I would plan to go to Disney World on my next birthday. I would love to be there in the Magic Kingdom! That would be so cool.

  • 299
    Suzanne A. says:

    If I could plan my next birthday, I would love to rent a huge house on the beach somewhere and have all of my family members there with me. Also, must be pet friendly so all of the doggies could go too!

  • 300
    Jeni says:

    My first choice would be to head to Disney World but, my birthday’s in August so it would be a little warm πŸ™‚ . So, one of the things I want to do when DS gets a little older is to take a Disney Cruise to Alaska so let’s go with that instead.

  • 301
    Shelley G says:

    I just celebrated my birthday a few days ago, and next year it will be the big 5-0! I have a simple wish. My husband is always gone the month of March, so to be able to go visit him on my birthday would be great!

  • 302
    joybells says:

    I would love to go to the mountains for a family reunion.

  • 303

    I would love to take a trip to Disney with my family for a week, and a enough cash to buy all the crafting supplies I want.

  • 304
    Jodi L says:

    Since stamping is my passion and Papertrey Ink is my favorite company, I would love to spend a weekend with all the Papertrey Ink designers and staff and see all the behind-the-scenes, work together with them side-by-side and learn directly from them all to see what keeps your company so fresh & new!

  • 305
    sue says:

    I would get all my family and friends together and spend a week up at Yosemite. Cake would definitely be involved!

  • 306
    Leanne S says:

    I would love to spend my birthday with all my kids. Missing the two at University.

  • 307
    txgrandma says:

    I will most likely celebrate my next birthday the way we usually do and that is surrounded by family and a few close friends. I usually let them decide where and when and they always plan something wonderful!

  • 308
    Karen Hetherington says:

    My birthday would be a home cooked meal with my husband,two daughters,their husbands and our grandchildren. They would cook and clean up and cake and ice cream would be plentiful.

  • 309
    Julie Rae says:

    I would celebrate my birthday in a way I learned growing up, watching the adults in my family; give to someone else. Even though it is not my ‘happy place’ climate-wise and this is pie-in-the-sky wishing, we would spend a few weeks in the Mediterranean with my husband’s family so my father-in-law could return to the land of his father, Greece. I know it’s not a particularly great time to visit Greece, but Dad has never been and he’s 94 so…!

  • 310
    Kathy Pronovost says:

    My dream birthday happened last year when we planned a vacation to Hawaii and it worked out that the best time for all of us to go was during my “birthday week” so I kept calling the vacation my destination birthday celebration. Would love a repeat of that at Disneyland this year!!!

  • 311
    Carolyn says:

    I would have all of my children and grandchildren, extended family members and friends stop by ( wherever that location may be) for yummy food and fun together, catching up, sitting down together to talk. And it would definitely include delicious cake with gobs of buttercream icing to enjoy:)

  • 312
    Annmarie miller says:

    I share my birthday with my youngest child. And when she was little we go do something special togeather, but know that she is a teen she has other thing going on. It would be nice to spend this birthday together again .

  • 313
    Marianne M says:

    I would be happiest having all my children and their families with me! We don’t have to go anywhere special, but I wish we could have another cook-out at our old family home and enjoy the sun and fun together πŸ™‚

  • 314

    I’d love to fulfill the one dream on my”bucket list”: a trip to Italy’s countryside, to write my own “Under the Tuscan Sun” story!

  • 315
    amy gutknecht says:

    Spending a week at Walt Disney World with my son and husband. Pure heaven!

  • 318
    OmaGloria says:

    I will be 50 on my next birthday and would love just a quiet celebration with close family and friends.

  • 319
    Noreen says:

    I would have a reunion with my whole family (some of whom I haven’t seen for several years). I’d hold it in a wooded area with several cabins available for us to use for a week. And why not have it catered so we could just enjoy visiting.

  • 320

    If I could plan my next birthday, I would love to have dinner at a special restaurant with my family.

    My wish would be to celebrate both my birthday and my cancer going into remission.

  • 321
    Lisa G. says:

    A trip to Italy with my family. We’re hoping to go next year.

  • 322
    Beata says:

    My next birthday will begin with a concert, Stone Roses in NY, and then the family will drive over to the ocean for a few days of sea shell hunting and sandcastle building. Then a couple days back home in Chicago, making cards with my sisters (who also celebrate their birthdays, one on the same day as me and one a few days prior). It’s a beautiful thing!

  • 323
    Suzette says:

    My next birthday dream would be having all of my family together for a wonderful meal that I don’t have to cook a thing for!

  • 324
    Marianne says:

    I would love to have all of our (Dutch) friends and family come over to Crete and have mezedes in a local taverna with live (but not loud) Greek music and have them experience why we love living here in Greece. But since this is unlikely to happen (both money and age wise), I’ll ‘settle’ for a quiet meal out with my husband who will hopefully have fully recovered after his past operations and chemo treatments…

  • 325
    Sheryl W says:

    Nothing fancy – just spending time with my kids and grandkids!

  • 326
    Debbie Wright says:

    I would choose to go to Maui with my family. We go as a family every other year in the Spring. My birthday is in December and I would love to be there for the holidays too!

  • 327
    Lynn Hardy says:

    I would like to spend my birthday with my sweet daughter at a stamping workshop if possible. Then out for a meal and cocktails with her and my husband. It won’t happen though as she is away at University. I’m really missing her!

  • 328
    Pam Hollie says:

    I would take my whole family to Disneyworld. My dream vacation, lol.

  • 329
    Linda says:

    My dream birthday? To have the winning lotto numbers so I could stay home from work!

  • 330
    Linda says:

    I’d spend it in Paris with my daughter who is one of my favorite traveling partners. We’ve been in Europe together a couple times before, and Paris would be perfect.

  • 331
    Amy Young says:

    A trip to Hawaii, because I would much rather be on a beach in November rather than stuck in the cold and snow! πŸ™‚

  • 332
    Lisa R. says:

    Dinner at a favorite restaurant with family and close friends would be perfect!

  • 333
    Kathie B says:

    I just celebrated my birthday last week and I wouldn’t mind doing it all over again on my next birthday… I was treated to a great meal out with a good friend at Carrabba’s Italian Grill and then went home and had a slice of Sander’s “Bumpy Cake,” an old time Detroit favorite and a happy girlhood memory.

  • 334
    StephH says:

    My birthday always occurs during the NFL playoff’s, for which my entire family gather’s to celebrate, regardless of which teams are playing. My dream would be to be able to take them all to an actual playoff game to celebrate, ideally in a Southern state where the temperatures are above freezing ?

  • 335
    Linda says:

    Spend a wonderful day with my husband away from everything or stamping with friends

  • 336
    Angelique Vela says:

    If I could plan my next B-day it would involve bringing in people, in advance, to clean it and organize it just so. I won’t have to do a thing. It would also involve delivery of our favorite foods, in abundance, ready to eat. Again, I won’t have to do a thing. Let’s not forget a driver. This way I can spend the day (prepared by somebody else)with my family doing whatever we want to do. A gal can dream! ;D

  • 337
    Erin S says:

    If I could plan how to celebrate my own birthday…..it would be to spend a two or three days without kids or husband, making cards with friends. A card retreat! Lol! Most of my card making time is spent alone and I relish when I get to do it with others!!

  • 338
    kimgyu says:

    I’ve never been to a tropical island so I would gather family and friends for an all expense paid trip to an island of luxury!

  • 339
    Mary Guikema says:

    No work and all play with my family.

  • 340
    kathyL says:

    I would like to have a relaxing weekend away somewhere. Locations really doesn’t matter, just a weekend where my family and I can just relax and enjoy each other. No sports games to run to, no work commitments, just fun.

  • 341
    Quyen says:

    My birthday is coming and I hope we could go to a fancy restaurant with all family members, and come back home with a box full of PT goodies πŸ˜‰ That will be perfect!

  • 342
    Alesa says:

    It would involve family, an ocean & a beautiful view.

  • 343
    Kathy D says:

    We are not so much on big celebrations here, so, I am going to say I am hoping my next birthday celebration includes someone else doing the dishes (from baking the cake & from dinner!). Greedy of me, I know. πŸ˜‰

  • 344
    Deb H says:

    I will stick with our tradition. The birthday person gets to pick the restaurant and all family members are invited. And sometimes friends and family members of family also come. My birthday is in the fall so I have lots of time to decide on the restaurant.

  • 345
    Carol D. says:

    Money no object? I’d fly to Rome for dinner in my favorite ristorante.

    An entire day in my craft room without interruption and the ol’ MOJO in high gear would be a great birthday for me.

  • 351
    Kathy McDonald says:

    Time spent with my friends and family at the beach.

    LOVE this release!

  • 352
    B Soo Hoo says:

    I would plan a family trip so that we could all spend time together. The destination would be a place we’ve never been before so that we could all discover something new.

  • 353
    Tosha says:

    I would spend my day with my husband, with a treat covered with raspberries, a steaming hot pot of coffee and my favorite quilt on the very top of Pikes Peak.

  • 354
    Veda says:

    If money was not object, I would plan a Disney cruise for my wonderful husband and I. We haven’t been able to go out and have fun much, so this way we could both celebrate with some R&R!

  • 355
    Maeghan m. says:

    My next birthday isn’t until November, but I’d love to go to Walt Disney World for the Christmas season!!!

  • 356

    It would definitely be spending it with my boys.
    A trip to Italy would be the best trip ever!
    I love those guys so much!

  • 357
    Julene says:

    I would plan a trip to the mountains, staying in a huge log cabin, for hiking and nature trips with all my family and friends, complete with a tour guide who knew what they were doing. And someone else is paying for this, right? πŸ˜‰

  • 358
    Rubina Pantoja says:

    Wow – what an amazing release. I’ve seen all the sneak peeks but when you look at them all together it’s breathtaking! I don’t own a Papertrey product yet so a $150 gift certificate would be awesome – thank you for the opportunity!

  • 359
    Karen Cash says:

    If I could plan my next birthday, it would be with my grandmother, and she would still be alive. I would get her in my craft room with me, and I would ask her to make my invitations with me, and we would scrapbook pages from her past. I would ask her to tell me stories about her and our family history while we worked on each scrapbook page. Then, we wouldn’t send out any invitations, and I’d just split the cake with her!!!!

  • 360
    Karyn S says:

    Bringing my family together would be the best birthday ever.

  • 361
    Kim Rendino says:

    My next birthday is the big 4-0. I’d love to go on a vacation….maybe a cruise!

  • 362
    Carol says:

    I would have family & friends paint a daisy on a frame so I could hang on my wall as a collage.

    I would go to Disney World. I’ve been to Disneyland and it’s definately the happiest place on earth!

  • 364
    Elle H says:

    For my next birthday, which is soon…..in April, I would love to celebrate with a big festive party with all my family and friends. There would be lots of tasty things to eat, drink & we would all have so much fun celebrating together!!!!

  • 365
    Julianne says:

    It would include taking the day off from work, good food, lots of family and friends to help celebrate, a massage and facial, and time to do some crafting!!

  • 366
    caroline says:

    I would take the family and go to Disneyland.

  • 367
    Michele F says:

    If I could plan any birthday party I’d like, it would involve traveling to a country I’ve never been, with the one I love the most!
    =]

  • 368
    renee m says:

    That’s a fun question to think about! I’d have breakfast (that I didn’t have to make!) with my hubby and sons, and then fly to California to see a best friend from high school I rarely get to see and we’d have some fun girl time doing some crafting!

  • 369
    Jeannine j. says:

    As long as I don’t have to cook or do dishes it would be a good day. Oh, and of course cake!

  • 370
    Lyn says:

    Birthdays are always the best when celebrated with family and friends. Dinner at a favorite restaurant with my family, and my grandchildren helping me blow out the candles would make the day super special!

  • 371
    Michele F says:

    Well if we’re dreaming … I’d travel to a never-before-visited country, with the one I love most!

  • 372
    Sarah A says:

    I would spend my birthday with my husband, parents, sister, BIL and their kids up at our condo in Winter Park, CO. Some of my best memories take place out there, and it is just so relaxing in the summer.

  • 373
    Harriet Skelly says:

    I would like to take a river boat cruise on any of the rivers of Europe with my DH and our best friends.

  • 375
    Peg Smith says:

    Oh, this answer is So easy! For 3 years I’ve been telling my kids and husband I’m throwing a Birthday Party for my 75 th birthday! That is next February. I’m taking them all to dinner in Seattle. It will be fun! Thanks for the chance to win! I Love this release!!!

  • 376
    Deborah Sheffield says:

    My birthday plans would include surf and sand with the love of my life.

  • 377
    Sandy S. says:

    This is not for real, but a pleasant fantasy: a French-speaking fairy godmother would whisk me away to France, and be my tour guide there!

  • 378
    MaxMak says:

    I would have lunch at a fun park with all my grandchildren for my special Bi8rthday treat.

  • 380
    Jen Carter says:

    If I could plan my own birthday and money wasn’t a factor (which of course it always is!) I would plan a get away with my husband to one of the “must see” places on my travel list. I’d love to travel abroad. That would be an ultimate birthday trip!

  • 381

  • 383

    My next birthday is the big 4-0, so I would gather my family and friends and have a week at Disney World!

  • 384
    L. Sunn says:

    Vegas baby! A week would work perfectly!

  • 385
    Niki C says:

    My next birthday celebration would involve packing up the family and heading to my hometown in Canada. It would be Christmastime and the kiddos have never seen actual snow before, so I think it would be a fabulous experience!

    Kathryn A says:

    If I could plan my next birthday, I would take a bike ride around my favourite lake and have a picnic.

  • 391

    Frosted cake and word games!

    Gerry S says:

    I’d love to celebrate in London with my children and grandchildren. But just to celebrate another year is a blessing.

  • 394
    Susan says:

    My next birthday would involve cake of course, lots and lots of cake. And NO candles – we don’t want the Fire Department to be in attendance. And a special birthday cake for my dogs to enjoy as well since I spend the most time with them.

  • 395
    Cheryl I says:

    It would be some sort of adventure and good meal with my family! Perhaps an overnight stay at the beach with a delicious dinner and breakfast. Anything where we’re all together with lots of opportunity for great laughter and conversation.

  • 396
    Greta H says:

    Well, I just turned 65, so this is a little late, but the best BD ever would be to have my brother & sister meet me for a week together (with spouses!) in a big house on a lake! Next best would be a stamping retreat where I could meet my blogging friends in person!

  • 397
    Beverly Perdue says:

    My birthday is in April. I would love to go to the beach for my birthday and be able to spend time with my sons and my husband. I don’t get to see my sons as much as I’d like.

    If I could plan how to celebrate my next birthday it would involve a cruise to Alaska with my husband.

  • 401
    Sally K says:

    That’s an easy one – spending the day with our two sons who live far away in other states going to college. Hard to be away from them, but we are so happy and proud that they are realizing their dreams!

  • 402
    Natalie Lapakko says:

    If I could do anything I wanted for my birthday, I would take my whole family on a trip to someplace warm. I’d want to sit on the beach and drink something with an umbrella in it, then build sandcastles.

  • 403
    Joyce M. says:

    I would love to go to London with my family. I have not been there in a long time, and my kids have never gone. I think we would have a great time and it would be a birthday to remember forever.

    I would take a trip seeing our great United States, get in the Motor home and go, maybe to the Smoky Mountains

  • 409
    Tammy W says:

    I think having family near is the best way to celebrate. For my 50th birthday my husband surprised me and rented a beach house (in Virginia Beach where we live, my husband is retired military) and had my entire family come in from Milwaukee (1,000 miles away and I don’t get to see them often). There were 23 of us in the house, including my 5 week old grand-nephew. πŸ™‚ It was a fabulous week full of so much fun and great memories!

  • 410
    jen shears says:

    I would have cinnamon rolls from a local restaurant to start the day, maybe some time for creating and then gather with my husband, sweet daughter & parents for a relaxing afternoon! Nothing fancy- just time together! (If my birthday was in the spring or summer rather than December I might try to add a garden tour!)

  • 411
    Jennifer L. says:

    I would be with my husband and kids at a beach resort with someone else taking care of all the food, etc.

    Carol S says:

    It would have to include the three Fs Family, friends and food – then I’d be happy!

  • 414
    JulieZ says:

    Hmm, I’d say either going on a trip (1st choice) or making something (really) – maybe an all day workshop, class, make & take – I just love going in, not having to bring anything and then coming out with lots of handmade goodies πŸ˜€

  • 415
    Tracy says:

    I’d celebrate my next birthday on a cruise with my husband and children.

  • 417

    I would chose a Huge rental for a week somewhere that there is a lake with mountain views and lots to do. Then I would invite my son & his family, 5 couples I love dearly and a chef to cook for everyone. Mine is a big dream.
    Or dinner out at my favorite restaurant and time to spend several hundred dollars picking out Papertrey products. That would be more attainable.

    I planned last year’s birthday when I turned 60 and went on a short cruise with my best friend from high school who was turning 60 as well. This year, I’d plan for a quiet birthday with my husband, going out to dinner. I think Cheesecake Factory will be calling my name!

    I love working with wool. This includes wool felt, repurposed wool, yarn and unprocessed wool. My dream birthday would be a day out visiting some of my favorite fiber and crafting stores, then enjoying some of my purchases by making things with friends.

    My birthday is tough it’s Christmas Eve and I live 45 min away from 98% of my family. It’s never easy. But money would need to be involved, for a beautiful catered Christmas Eve dinner in a beautiful banquet hall. Where someone else would decorate, cook and serve!

Long story short, he stressed himself into a gallbladder attack so bad, he needed emergency surgery the NIGHT BEFORE we were to leave on our trip!!! He was fine & released from the hospital 2 hours AFTER our flight left.
    Five years later (present day) I would like to go to Tahiti for my birthday!

    It would involve travel with my family with everyone happy, my three year old not acting crazy, and each of us can find something good to eat in the foreign country we were visiting. Sigh, I can dream!

    Amazing release!!!

    I would LOVE to be on a beach, maybe Bora Bora. Enjoying the water and just relaxing.

    This is a good question. Made me think. I would like to celebrate my birthday with a pampering spa day followed with a mini party with my close people.

    This is one of my favorite releases! . I will love the ultimate shock I will get from my Dad when I give HIM a thank you for helping me reach MY “29th” birthday. He is such a beautiful soul and I like to remind him.

    If I had my dearest wish, I would take my family on a cruise to Alaska. However, my Lupus would land me in the hospital after being in the sun for 20 minutes or more! Therefore, I would be happy with a couple of uninterrupted hours of crafting followed by a nice dinner with my entire family without quabbling.

    I would like to spend my birthday somewhere I have never been before, preferably London, but I would be happy with Mt. Rushmore too.

    Hi Nichole,

    If I could plan my next birthday I would ask for all gifts to be in cash in order to have the craft room of my dreams! You know what I mean, the big, fabulous, expensive, dreamy, spacious and OUT OF THIS WORLD MOTHER OF ALL CRAFT ROOMS!!!
    That is what I would do….and someone to pick after all the mess that I make!
    Just imagine one huge armoire for all of my PTI goodness and candy. And the others for the rest of my stuff, a counter so lengthy that no matter how many things i use for a single card, it will have space left just in case….Sigh! A girl can only dream,right?

    CariΓ±os,
    MarΓ­a Alba

    I would have a magnificent Tea with all the fancy tarts & little sandwiches, lace table cloths, china & crystal. And of course, a birthday cake with FRUIT! I always like cakes with fruit. Oh, & everyone would dress up & the ladies would wear hats! πŸ˜‰ As we’d eat, we’d just sit & talk & enjoy each others company & maybe even have lawn games… πŸ˜‰ JUST DREAM’IN HERE!!!! πŸ˜‰

    Erin says:

    Because my birthday is in the dead of winter, I would meet my girlfriends somewhere warm and spend time at the beach, chilling poolside and taking in some spa treatments. Top that off with a great dinner and good wine!

    That’s easy! Our boys and their families live way far away from us, and so we don’t see them as often as I’d like. My wish would be for all of us to be together on my birthday. Doesn’t matter where, as long as we could celebrate together!

    The next one is the big 5-0. I very much want to take the family on a photo safari. Been saving for years. I believe this one will have to wait until the big 5-2 or 3. Still need funds and need the kids to grow up a little so they can withstand the long, long journey.
