What happens to us as we get older? Why do we decide that birthdays are so terrible and dreaded? I mean we are going to get older anyway. Birthdays are supposed to be a day to celebrate the wonderful people God has put in our lives no matter how old or young they are. I started to think about this because Saturday is DH's birthday and my youngest can hardly contain herself. It is so cute. She has declared that Saturday is Daddy's day and was quite upset at the thought that she would have to go to gymnastics practice for part of his day. Keep in mind this is the same child that Wednesday, on the way back home from practice said, "Only three more days until I get to have gymnastics again!" I want to have that innocent excitement about birthdays again. I tell you, some of the best lessons I learn are from my girls. Love them!
I have another project to share with you. I did this layout using a bunch of Magistical Memories Chipboard and lots of yummy papers. Don't know what I would do without pattern paper. LOL
The background paper is actually some Halloween paper from Creative Imaginations. I just loved the pattern and had to use it. The bottom strip of paper is tan cardstock that I fringed to mimic the indian girl's dress.
The pilgrim and indian are called Potty People from Magistical Memories. They come in a set of about six with two large and four small people. These two large were holding hands so I cut them apart. I am not sure if you can see from the picture but I inked and then fringed the indian's clothes. The leaf also comes from Magistical Memories. I cut pp to fit, sanded it a bit, inked it and then applied UTEE. I put it in the freezer for just a couple of minutes and then cracked the UTEE.
Hope you enjoy your weekend. We will be celebrating. :)
