Happy Birthday To Me!

Yep.  Today is my birthday.  Forgive me if I don't sound too excited...it's a big number.  I don't like it.  I feel much, much younger, which I suppose is a good thing.  :oD

I was so inspired by this amazing layout by Tessa HERE that I made this birthday layout for myself:


(Man, that's a bad picture!   I'll try to take a better one later today in better light!)

I used this week's Design Dollies sketch and also w i d e l y interpreted their elements challenge "showers & flowers" (the layout is "showered" with tons of mist, lol!). 


I also had the Who's That Girl "Distinguishing Feature" challenge in mind when I made this.  I have been told as long as I can remember that I don't look "that old" whatever the age happened to be.  I was, no joke, still frequently carded until I was 37.  (And then, for some reason, it shut off abruptly like a switch...I blame the crazy kids. Bitter? Me?  Nooooooo...) 

And, if you read the journaling you may have a sudden urge to kick off your Sunday shoes and cut footloose.  I've used a line from the song Footloose which is the challenge song over on Scrapping the Music


Of course, I must send a shout out and wave a big hello to my girl Diana for the gorgeous flower!  You can find similar ones in her etsy store!!!!

Off for a fun day with the kids...the boy's basketball game and then to his school carnival!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HEIDI!!!!!! What a fab layout-- brings back memories for me! And by the way, I too was carded until I was 32...how funny. Let's hope our "young" genes stay put even in old age. I like the stitching and journaling...and that you used both Glimmer and Maya mists on this layout -- they're so radically different but you used them so effectively. Thanks for inspiring me today. xoxo
