My 39 & Glamorous Birthday Blog Hop!

Welcome to My 39 & Glamorous Birthday Blog Hop!

First I would like to thank Bonnie for putting this blog Hop together, and

allowing me to join in on her Birthday Celebration!

Happy Birthday Bonnie!

Hope all your dreams come true!

If you just arrived from Linda's

you are on the right track!

If you are a regular follower of my blog, and just

stop in to say hi and would like to start at the beginning

Please click here

The Hop begins at Bonnie's (she's the Birthday Girl)

For my Birthday project, I decided to make a layout from a cruise

we took to celebrate my Hubbies Birthday in 2007.

This was just before I became very ill and had to quit smoking!

So I was four years younger!

and at least 30 pounds lighter!

The ship was made from a die cut and my Cuttlebug ,

I just cut it out a few times, so I could layer it.

I used paper tearing for the ocean, and chalked all the edges.

Doesn't it look real?

Makes me want to hop on a plane and find a beautiful beach some where!

Cartridges used in this layout were:

George and Basic Shapes

Pack Your Bags

Paper Doll Dress Ups

Life is a Beach

Fabulous Finds

3 Birds on Parade

I just love the way this layout came together!

So now for the fun stuff!

Super cute layout..... Love all the details you put into it!


Anniebee said...

Wow! This is one awesome layout! I can't believe you achieved the effect of the ocean just by the strategic tearing of paper. Yes, it really DOES look like real water! Incredible! I can relate to the problems of quitting smoking too and I sympathize with you. I'm working on 3 years tobacco free and it was the best thing I ever did, even with the weight gain. I was already following and now I have your blinkie posted on my blog too.
