Hello 34 | Elle's Studio Sketch

I'm taking you back to October last my birthday celebration. This weekend, I realized I hadn't done a page about it yet. I remedied that right quick.

I used this week's sketch at Elle's Studio. I liked how it had four small photos. Since I had a lot of shots I wanted to include, this worked well.

I loved this large tag from Elle's Studio, and it worked perfectly to use the 3 and 4 in my title. It's a bit hard to see, but I circled the two numbers.

I also enjoyed building all the layers in this section in the top left. Patterned paper, washi tape, labels...oh my! The "All Smiles" button is from Ormolu.

The journaling talks about how I'm a big fan of birthdays. I think they should be big deals, with a lot of hoopla. And I still believe that....but turning 34, something changed for me. I simply can't believe that I'm 34. It doesn't seem possible. I'm uncomfortable with how fast time is spinning by. I've become more acutely aware of my mortality, which hinders ones ability to celebrate! I am truly thankful for all of my blessings and each year I'm given and the time to celebrate with my family....I just wish it would all slow down a bit. I can't be alone in this, right?

And on that cheery note....thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your comments so much!

*A note about my niece in these photos. She dressed up as a ninja to go to the arboretum. A whole other layout is needed to talk about that!
