It's My Birthday Blog Line Up




Suzanne-    You are here 

Wow lots of great projects yesterday! Thanks for all your wonderful comments.  My project for today is a layout I did using the cart Nifty Fifties.  I got the idea for this layout  as so many of my friends are now going into their 60's and were born in the 50's.  I myself will join the 60's club in 2 years.   The cuts in the 50's are a lot of fun.     

My blog candy for this blog hop and this month is a $25 gift certificate for your choice of Michaels or Joanns.  I am celebrating my 6 month blogaversary as well as going over 250 followers.  Please become a follower and leave a comment. All comments made on my blog from July 13-July 30th will be entered in the drawing. 
Please come back all 3 days for more great projects and more chances to win. 
So now you are off to your next stop 


  1. Fabulous lo Suzanne! I wasn't born in the fifties, but sure do remember a lot of the 50's things, lol. Like the coke bottle, only in the south we drank a coke with peanuts pour into the bottle. LOL Gross to some people but delish when I was a kid in the 60's. You have great images on the lo. Love this cart!!!
