Me at 45


The challenge this month at Once Upon a Sketch has to do with birthdays, and many of their DT chose to highlight their current age - and I thought that was a great idea.  I wrote about who I am at 45 on a tag, that slides into a pocket underneath my Horizon Coved Rectangle die cut.  You can see the journaling card pulled out in the picture below.

Beautiful work! Your layout is very well done and a nice design. I love the papers you've chosen to use. Great colors and patterns! Love the pleated ribbon and bits of doilies and laces, too. Your pull out journaling tag is also a nice touch. Great picture, too! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
