50 is Magical

What a Party! I'm surrounded with Tim Holtz products and boxes! I'll be cleaning up my Birthday Party for a few days!

While we were partying this weekend I received a great birthday gift. My husband brought in the mail and there were several magazines in the pile. We were going through them, "Adam's, Adam's, Adam's.....{{{Scream}}}}." MINE! On page 82...the whole page...is my canvas of my uncles when they were young in Somerset Memories. I did a happy dance all over the house and I'm still a bit giddy. My son's fiancee thought I had lost it. It's been a long time scrappy dream.

If that's not enough I also received an email that Scrapbook News and Review is publishing 3 of my layouts in just a week or so. You can click on the icon on the right and it will take you there. It is an amazing magazine. I did the happy dance on that one too. Can you believe it?!? It's like being 50 is magical. I highly recommend it!

While we were partying I was also creating. I wanted to do something crazy and fun. Since I was going through all the old photos I picked this one of me up, scanned, enlarged and cut it up. I had fun with grunge, inks, Maya Road pins, Prima, Studio 490 stamps and paint. It's cool to just play sometimes.

Winners of the Celebration Birthday Party are:
1. Inks, Marla
2. Stamp Set, Regina
3. Grungepaper +, Tona
4. Grungeboard +, Lesa
5. The Hardware Store......
