Life is about creating yourself…. George Bernard Shaw

I have found some more Embossed Circle Cards and 3D Paper Tole (Exoctic Birds) toppers in my stash.  So on the lazy rainy day yesterday I enjoyed teaming the two together and layering up the paper tole of this fantastic bird.  I then dug through my paper stash to find some paper to make a great background for this bird.  Next I added this rub-on sentiment that I thought was just perfect.

"life isn't about finding yourself 
life is about creating yourself.'  George Bernard Shaw

I think this bird has definitely been creating itself. :-)

Just a side view to show of the layers.

Well we all survived our daughter's 18th birthday party.  A couple were a little worse for wear but on the whole I was very impressed how thoughtful the teenagers were even if they did have a little to drink.  Some would come inside from time to time and have a chat to myself and my husband, they would check that they weren't getting too loud……they were loud but it was a fun, happy loud.  They took turns to watch the people that weren't feeling too well and at the end of the night/morning I was really impressed how our daughter was on top of who should and could drive home.  She had a lovely time with lots of good friends.  So now it's time to find out what her 18th year will bring for her.

Have a great day.

  9. Love your card Merry - stunning - and I love that sentiment: what a great saying and it is so true!

    Great that the 18th birthday went well. Sounds like the kids were very kind and considerate.

    Sorry I haven't been around to visit Merry. I am moving craft rooms and the house is turned upside down. My daughter moved into a bigger bedroom (which was my Craft Room) and my husband moved out of his hobby room (which I have moved into) and my husband has moved into my daughter's old room. Total chaos - but a treasure hunt finding things I forgot I had - and things I have no memory of every buying LOL!
