Me at 37


PTI stamp "through the trees" and Studio Calico Cloud rubons.

 Babbling Brook Background stamp from Studio Calico. I heat Embossed with Mustered ZING. Diecut the numbers using my PTI "by the numbers" dies and found the paper on the back of a Studio Calico advertisement that came in the kit. Love it when I find little goodies I can use.
I die cut the "life" using PTI Mat Stack 4 and found the paper from a backing in the Studio Calico packaging from the wood butterflies. I wanted yellow but not solid, and not floral. As soon as I saw it, I thought "that's it". I had to heat emboss the "life" because the paper was glossy and would not have dried without smearing. I used the Outlined Alphabet from PTI, my new favorite alphabet stamp set.

What a nice change to see a scrapbook layout in this challenge. You did a great job and made fabulous use of recycling the advertisement. I returned to study when my children were small and I remember how tired I got so I hope you enjoyed your birthday.
