Rub Ons, Color Ready Alpha Stickers and Daydream Papers

I know I's been a whole week since I posted.
No excuses.
(I could never tell anyone that it took me a whole week to make this layout)
It didn't. It only took 6 days!
Here's some cool new techniques and toys.
Color Ready Alpha Stickers. Pretty Cool!
Tresa Black showed us how to stamp right on them to give them some personality!
First place them on either wax paper or Craft Sheet.
Stamp right on them. Go on! It's cute!

I then stuck them on black cardstock then trimmed out to make them "pop" .
Here's a close-up.
What's that bubble thing you ask?
It's one of our Clear Window charms to magnify a cute necklace.

Here's the whole left side of the layout.
Don't I look great?!

Not no, not really don't I look's not really me!
(did the name on the cake give that away?)
Here's the right side of the layout.
Rub ons on three sides of the bottom picture
See those little pictures on the right edge?
It was a display board with a collage of pictures of the birthday girl. (ohthecleavernessofme)
And rub ons with the saying, "Zero 2 30 in a blink".

Yup...the first 30 years of one's life goes in a blink.
I remember 30
I was 6 months pregnant with Haley.
I didn't feel flirty.
I sure didn't feel young.
And I'm pretty sure I waddled.
I remember 30.

Awesome layout - as always. Catalog doesn't do that paper justice at all. Saw the sampler. Loved it. I remember 30, too. I thought I had the world by the tail - that my life was going to be perfect. By 40, I knew better. At 50, I was glad it hadn't been. Live n' learn! Thanks for sharing!
