Birthday Celebration, Part 3 + Fall-To Layout #178

Shopping: OMG, there's definitely an upside and a downside to watching haul videos on YouTube. I consider YouTube a fantastic resource on where to get good deals on crafty supplies, but then I feel the urge to go to the stores so that I can join in on the shopping fun. After this birthday weekend of shopping, I'll have to take a long break from going into any of these stores!

Birthday festivities: 1 birthday, celebrated 3 different times. I feel so loved! Tonight, I went to my parents' house for dinner with my cousin, 2 aunts, uncle and my cousin's kid (first cousin, once removed?). We ate sushi from one of my favorite restaurants and topped off the night with finishing the chocolate cheesecake that I baked Friday night. I had to make sure it was out of my house because I would probably have eventually eaten the whole thing myself. Everyone seemed to like it, hooray! My cousin gave me a pot of tulips, which were really pretty.

Card: With all the item's that I bought yesterday and today, I was very excited to make a card. Here's my take on Fall-To Layout #178. I started out with some American Crafts paper. It was first one on the stack that I bought from Tuesday Morning.

Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Chestnut Roan
Stamps: Hero Arts- Everyday Sayings
Paper: American Crafts- The Classics
Punches: Fiskars Apron Lace border punch
Die: QuicKutz- Birds
Other: Liquid Pearl in White Opal, We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Fancy Floss in Cream Soda

I have to stop watching your haul videos . . . makes me want to go check out Marshalls and Tuesday Morning. Both of these stores are within 2 miles of my house. I guess I may just do that today. :)
