{got numbers?? the next paper variety challenge!!}

Hi everyone! The challenge this week at The Paper Variety is to create a paper project and use a number or any number of numbers. :) :)

###################

This past December, I had a memorable birthday. I say it was memorable because I experienced a {tiny bit of} anxiety leading up to this day. I'm not gonna lie...I was nervous to turn what people call the "big five-oh". But, thankfully the day turned out to be fabulous and I didn't notice any new gray hairs or wrinkles. :) :)

I chose to create a lay-out for this challenge.
This photo of me was taken on Christmas Eve -- 6 days before my 50th birthday.

{i'm fifty and okay with it.}
I started with a piece of AC black cs and used some Websters trendsetters pp. The "old car" was fussy cut from the pp. I used a fiskars "I am grateful" stamp - and stamped the sentiment several times on the car. The big title letters are from my stash - I've had them for a couple of years - made by K&Co. The red felt {50} are AC thickers. The letter stickers are by Pink Paislee and the buttons are from my button jar. :) I chose to machine stitch on top of the entire title to hopefully give it some emphasis. :)




Of course there's an awesome prize to win this week at the Paper Variety!!!


Just create a paper project - remember - anything goes - and upload it to the gallery before next Tuesday, April 26, noon EST and you'll be entered into the random draw for this ---->
This fabulous prize comes to you from We Scrap Kits.


Hope to see your project in the Paper Variety gallery!!!
Have a great day! hugs, patti
