storage for my paper projects...come take a look!

A quick post...

...and a happy birthday!


Not to me, though: to my husband! This day marks the beginning of the one month and 5 days that we're the same age. Then, I get old again ;)

Used some paper from Basic Grey's Obscure line -- an oldie but a goodie. It was just too white, so I hit it with some brown Glimmer Mist. The focal point is die-cut from cardboard (very manly), inked and stamped with PTI's Say it with Style. Speaking of oldies -- see that big ol' grommet? Remember them? I dug out my old Making Memories tools for setting them, couldn't remember how, gave up and used a 1/2" circle punch and a screwdriver instead. Inventive!  The die (and the inked-up tissue tape) are Tim Holtz. Card is 9 by about 3 inches.

Well, we're off for some birthday-fun outings. Hope you're having a lovely day!
