Milestone Birthdays - entering into the Top Tip challenge & a few others


WOW, this year has been full of milestone birthdays!!!  First, I turned 40 - don't feel 40 so that's a good thing!!! LOL

My sister turned 50, my brother in law turned 50, my mother in law turned 60 and my Dad is turning 80!  Crazy eh??  Here are a couple of the cards I made - one isn't finished yet & the other I forgot to take a picture of before I gave it to my sister! 

I have used the same GUS image from Bugaboo Stamps with different sentiments.  The top one is for my brother in law who just got back from a year in Australia so thought this image suited him perfectly! LOL The bottom one is for my Dad and I used the same image because it reminded me when we were kids at our cabin in the summers.  Dad never wore a speedo (thank God!) but its a funny image anyway!!!





 I am entering this into TOP TIP CHALLENGE this week (my TIP is:  If you want to add dimension to elements in your project, use CRYSTAL LACQUER.  I used it on the beach ball and the pail.  It looks and feels "real"!!!)

I am also entering this into the following challenges:

One Stitch at a Time - use a digi
The Pink Elephant - Anything goes
The Crazy Challenge - Party
City Crafter Challenge - Save the date (I hope their "age" counts as a number!)
Pile it On - Anything goes


Thanks for stopping by!!!
Have a great week!
Chris

What's the chances of everyone having milestone birthdays in the same year? LOL! I love how the same image can look so different by adding different papers and a few embellishments! Thanks for sharing with us at Pile It On!
