It's My Birthday

{singing 50 cent's song} Go shorty, it's your birthday, you gonna party like it's your birthday...

I am 34 years old today...woot woot!!!!! I was born August 3, 1974 at 7:23 pm in Cooper Hospital, Camden NJ. (notice the time this post was created...it's officially official! LOL)

Today, my guys took me to lunch and then sang happy birthday to me over this super yummy chocolate cake, complete with the lights out, a candle and a wish- all directed by Sir Donovan!


It's my birthday and I am in a generous mood...that's right, instead of receiving, I am giving...scrap goodies that is! It's my little way of saying thank you for all of the great comments, the support and well wishes. I feel pretty blessed as far as scrapping goes. This is a hobby that allows me to express myself, record my family history in my own way, make great buddies, and receive lots of fun stuff to work with either via other RAKs, scrap purchases or design team products. I went through my stash and picked out some things from various companies that I design for (acrylic buttons from myacrylicalbum.com; paper, die cuts, chipboard alpha, and an overlay from My Little Shoebox; 6 feet of ribbon/trim from savvynsassy.com; and some scrapbook film chippies from Zsiage) coupled with a ton of Primas, old and new, buttons and some other fun stuff. Just check it out! The best part is I haven't decided how I want to split the RAK...do I want to give it all to one lucky blog poster or split it up between a couple? There's only one way to find out- post a comment here and check back next Sunday, August 10th and see if you're a winner. Everyone who posts here by the August 10th 8pm EDT will be put in a random drawing! So it's kind of like your birthday, too! I can't wait to see who wins- I just love giving happy stuff away!!!!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Look at my latest LO! I love the colors, they just scream summer! Those beautiful lace trims were part of savvynsassy's August kit- they are just so yummy IRL! The chipboard hibiscus flowers and seahorse are from magistical memories.


here's a close-up of the seahorse- I covered it with doodlebug's sugar coated cardstock and used a flower brad, coated with stickles for the eye.


I covered the hibiscuses with MM noteworthy and added freehand details with stickles. The stamen was created with hand stitching and brads. I didn't have anymore round orange brads, so I used white ones- I just covered them with butterscotch alcohol ink and orange stickles.


TFL and good luck with the RAK! Birthday girl signing off!
