Why not celebrate everything?

This card is over on The Rubber Cafe blog.  This map paper from My Mind's Eye is so beautiful.  
If you know me at all, you know that I am not a fan of glitter.  If you even say the word, it is all over my face.  I don't even wanna touch it.  So now, imagine this card without the glitter, it just wouldn't work.  Sometimes, glitter is necessary.

READ - anytime and anywhere!

During the school year, Roman had to read 15-20- minutes a day.  I used to have to set a timer to get him to stop so he could journal about what he read.  Or, so we could start doing math and have our nightly fight!!  I would often times find him in the silliest places.  Under the wierdest things.  
This summer, if it is a book of his choice, he would read and read too.  With this layout, I thought I would highlight his favorite reading spots.  

  I found an awesome cut file over at The Cut Shoppe and started pulling papers from this months Studio Calico KOTM.  I added random enamels and some of my favorite flair from A Flair for Buttons

I took the negative of this heart and covered it with washi tape, backed it with foam and added back to the center of the heart.

Hardly any paper was used for this layout exempt the backgrounds, the cut sheet and a touch of the black and white stripped papers from the SC Kit.  It is mostly the embellishments that make this page.    See you soon.

Desperately trying to forget I'm 43!

I guess if you can't forget it, you might as well announce it.  
I am divulging too much information about myself over at eclectic Paperie today.  Ugh, can you believe it?  I often feel 43, if not older.  I have just recently started seeing things in the mirror that didn't used to be there.  I could list them but you probably don't care:o)  
So instead, I will share a layout with you using Fancy Pants Me-ology line.  
I don't often scrapbook about myself, so this is new.

Head over to eP and see more closeups of his layout.  But please,  do not wish me a happy birthday.  It was last month and I refuse to celebrate.  Until next year of course!

Anniversary Card using The Rubber Cafe KOTM

Today I am up over at The Rubber Cafe.  
Be sure to head over and see how this big bold beautiful card came together for me.  It is simple but fun.  Of course, once each month, I MUST doodle!  I think it is my new favorite thing.
