I've always felt that I didn't enter adulthood until I hit 30.
For some reason I was always the youngest at any job I held, always felt like a kid...I guess it's good to be a kid at heart, right? Well, when I turned 30 I went out and got a new hair cut...I told the hair dresser that I wanted something to make me look older...I don't know if it worked, but 6+ years later I want something to make me look 29 again, lol (secretly, I want my big permed hair from the 80s!!).
Well, for me and my 3 siblings.....we are all married and my younger brother's wife is finally crossing over into her 30s!! She's the last of us, we've all crossed over....some are well beyond ;) ... I won't go into ages, in case any decide to take a peak at my blog ... te he he. I don't know if any do, well I think my sister does, but for the rest of them, I don't think they do, so posting this before my sister-in-laws birthday wont spoil what she'll get in the mail.
I've been wanting to use my new "Golden Oldies" set and I thought this would be the perfect time. Welcoming her to the ripe-not so old-age of 30.
While visiting blogs this past weekend, I found this layout over at "In Stamping Mode" and I even told her that I'd be using it for this. The card came together so easily. She got it from somewhere else...the cirlce/life of a sketch I guess.
You know what? I read on another blog this weekend a great tip!! I don't know why I hadn't thought of it, but apparently she was on the same page as me and since she found the way off...she helped me as well. So many times I will take an image....stamp it and then color....then try to find papers to go with my beautifully colored image. DUH, she put a light on for me...(I wish I could remember who it was, she's one on my blog rolls, I know that much)...pick your designer paper first and then work from there. You are sure to have a wonderfully matched image every time!! I did this with Old Bessie here.....so she matches my paper!! Yippee!
Gotta love other people's blogs....that's why they are all out there, to give us such great tips as this one.....something so simple even!
