We Now Interrupt...

...regularly scheduled programming! LOL! I was going to share my other Sass layout, but...this box full of gorgeous stuff came to my house. And I had to scrap it, not because Leah asked me to, but because she filled the kit with so much loveliness.

Here is the October My Scrapbook Nook kit:



Sigh!

And here is what I made with it! You all know how much I love to look for elements right within the paper that I can use for embellishments/themes/borders! The yellow flower border was it for me! And I had to put the beautiful ribbon in the kit to good use! So I stitched and then backstitched!





I posted a class on how to complete this layout here if you are interested! Almost 40. 39 tomorrow...where does time go!

My thirties have been great times. I found myself suddenly alone at the end of my 2o's and really needed to get in touch with who I really was. After facing some demons and really discovering myself, my life completely changed. Steve walked in, my friendships were strengthened and I had my babies. I have also had some very difficult times, particularly this past year. Because of living my 30's, I am able to handle those and see the lessons I am meant to learn. Well, most of the time. Because I am far from perfect. So there will be plenty for me to work on during the next decade! I look forward to the changes, challenges and gifts that my 40's will bring. Ahh...waxing philosophical.

Happy Thursday everyone!
