AAM CHALLENGE #23: MEMORABLE BIRTHDAYS

It's All About Me's 1st Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Time does fly- - we have done so many challenges, have featured awesome guest designers and sponsors - - we're getting stronger than ever because of the support of our members and followers!!!!! I'm soooooo proud and happy that I am part of this family!!!!!!!!

Before I give you my birthday layout, let me just congratulate our new design team members:
Sarah Buck
Fabi Ormerod
Wendy Swenne
Nicola Booth
Azura Alyssa

These girls will be joining our returning DT members

And guess what? I think I just got a promotion LOL!!! I'm now a Senior Design Team member along with these gals who are part of the very first DT of AAM:
Arlene Camacho
Melissa Elsner
Donna Whalen


Okay, back to AAM's challenge: All of my life (and that spans 33 years!!!) until AAM's Challenge #23, I thought this picture was taken on my birthday. When I got it out of my album to use on this layout, imagine my surprise when I saw the date at the back of the photo: December 1978.

Supplies: Paper: October Afternoon, Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, Satin Flowers, Pearl Conchos: All About Scrapbooking, Chipboard Alphabets: American Crafts, Pearls: Prima Marketing, Stickers: SRM Stickers, Envelope: Maya Road, Ticket, Ink: Ranger Industries, Other: Ribbon, blings. Tools: Edge Punch: Fiskars, EK Success.

I was born in June 1977 so this makes me one and a half years old. Why would my Ma buy a birthday cake in December (NO ONE in the family is born in December!!!)? Too bad, I can't ask her anymore about it - - although knowing her, I think it's her zest for life that kicked in here. One doesn't have to wait for a real occasion to celebrate - - everyday that you spend with your loved ones, everyday that you are alive is enough reason. This just made me miss more my Ma's spontaneity, her spur of the moment antics....

Anyway, the DT girls were sponsored by SRM Stickers for this month wooohoooo!!!!!!!!! I used here Express Yourself-Everyday Life Stickers.

Happy 1st Birthday again AAM!!! Here's to more challenges, fun and self-discovery to the years ahead!!!
