May Studio AE from Technique Tuesday Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the Technique Tuesday Blog Hop for May!

Today we are featuring the Heartfelt kit


I used stamps from the kit on my Project Life page for week 17, April 21-27.


This was a big week, with my little boy Willie turning 6 on the 23rd and me turning 46 on the 24th.

Anytime someone tells me that they want to do something special for their 40th birthday I tell them to have a baby the day before they turn 40, then spend their 40th birthday in the maternity ward with a brand new baby.  Best birthday ever!

Besides the Studio AE stamps I also used From the Heart, which is the vertical journaling block.


I made this special card with an old picture of Willie and I in the hospital when he was 1 day old :)

So there are a few more stops on the hop:

Ali

Tobi

Daniela

Nichol

Laura (you are here)

Teri

Sharyn

We are doing a random draw from comments for a $25 gift certificate to the Technique Tuesday store.  The winner will be announced on the 15th on the Technique Tuesday blog.

Thanks for stopping by.


Supplies:  Technique Tuesday Studio AE May 2013 Heartfelt stamp set; Technique Tuesday From the Heart stamp; Technique Tuesday Story Cards; Tsukineko Memento ink; Copic markers; Simple Stories Sn@p patterned papers; MME Hootenany patterned paper; Echo Park Everyday Eclectic patterned paper; Elles Studio Calendar card.

Congratulations on all - I have a friend who used to say that every woman should have a baby at 40. Don't know that I agree with her but you sure got a keeper! Beautiful layout, too.
