WMS August Blog Party

Blog-Party-Logo 70%25  
Blog party time!
Welcome to my little entry to the WMS blog party this month.
Where we're celebrating all things birthday.
A special day to celebrate

So I did a quick layout.
Super quick.
As quick as fox.

I have been all about layouts recently.
Partially because I've gotten obsessed with Instagram.
I take pictures of everything I eat.
Everything I wear.
Everything I see.
Just everything...
And that's probably why only I have 5 Instagram followers.
(The 5 friends I conned into following me.)

So this pic was taken on my birthday this year.
And I figured why not make a layout.
Because, really, when am I going to turn 29 again?
(Oh right, next year... and the year after that... and the year after that...)


The stars are stamped from Midnight Feast.
To some of the stars I added a touch of glitter and then on some, I added a little gem.
Can you really have too much sparkle?


And then for the star of the show...
I cut out those numbers lovingly (with a machine)
And then stamped and embossed the background with Heirloom Patterns.
And there you go...

Thanks for stopping by and do make sure to check out ALL the fabulous projects here!

Belinda, this is so perfect for a birthday and I love all of the silver. Such a clever way to put your age, using the number dies. So fabulous!

B - you crack me up! but yes - sparkle is good! and the 29 is stunning - superb idea...! oh i pretty much take a pic of all my foods too...i think people are sick of seeing updates from me...but i'm a firm believer that food is a fun color canvas of tasty fun.
