The BIG Three-O (and a Giveaway)!

Credits: Papers by Traci Reed; crown and banner by Michelle Underwood, worn overlay by Danielle, of Something Blue Studios.

Today’s my birthday and I’m no longer a twenty-something :). I have had such a fabulous birthday!!!!!! Not only did I get to enjoy birthday celebrations earlier this month back home in CT, and go on a little getaway to Cape Cod with my sweetheart, but the happy birthday treats have just kept coming all the way up until today :)!

I even got some scrap-related birthday gifts:

DigiShop Talk emailed me a birthday greeting packed with coupons from digi designers, so I did a bit of shopping this morning and picked up goodies from Traci Reed and Michelle Underwood (thanks ladies)! And the other day I bought the worn overlays by Danielle, of Something Blue Studios, which EVERYONE is using lately. I usually don’t like to use something if I’ve already seen it a million times, but these are just too cool to pass up!! I got subscriptions to Creating Keepsakes and Digital Scrapbooking Magazine from my mom – YAY! Chris also got me single copies of Scrapbooks Etc and Simple Scrapbooks, PLUS my favorite scrap-related gift of all: ArtRage! Wow, I loooooove it!!! I have been having so much fun playing with it – here’s a little tribute to my new fun toy LOL:

But the sweetest gifts of all were not scrap-related! I got an adorable hand-made birthday card from Gabe and THIRTY emails from my awesome husband (sent from work) telling me why he is so glad to be my man (click here to see the list). Sigh.

So can you can see why I’m just over-the-moon happy today and feeling so generous :)!?! That’s why I decided last minute to have a fun giveaway right here on my blog – just leave a comment on this post for a chance to win!! I will randomly choose five winners to receive one of these Weeds & Wildflowers quick albums designed by me :). Thanks W&W for donating these!!
