Pieces of Me & It’s My Birthday too!!!
Holy! It’s been a long, long time since I have scrapbooked, I really, really want to get so much more scrapbooking done than I do, but, for some reason I don’t. I MUST! because I love it & I want my kid’s to have these pages forever. My kid’s mean the world to me (even when they drive me nuts!) & one day I’m hoping they will know just how much I love them.
I stayed up way to late last night finishing this layout, I wasn’t sure when I left it last night, but, when I went downstairs to look at it I was happy with it, I still might add some doodling around the border, not sure yet because I have never free-handed doodling & I don’t want to ruin it, it originally was just going to be on the white 12×12 cardstock but, I messed up around the top bornder with SU’s All in a Row stamp set, I really hate that stamp set, nothing good ever comes of it!
I followed a layout on page 28 of Scrapbook’s etc April 2008 issue. I used different heart shapes thru-out, some on dimensionals, I used heart rub-on’s on our clear buttons, I used Bazzill’s scalloped “just the edge cardstock” found here, love these, I just bought white ones & used SU’s Apricot Appeal Craft ink to apply ink all over the borders with a sponge, they are really reasonable, $3 or something for 20 strips. I’m not quite sure if the title really goes but, I like it & it fit!!!
Today is my 35th birthday! I can’t say that I’m particularly excited about turning 35 today, I’ve never really cared what number I turned, but, this one is an exception. This AM I have a very dear family friend coming to visit with me & than tonight we go to my in-laws for a yummy Lasagna dinner, very low key. Maybe I’ll post some pics later!
