Project PageMaps 1-12

It's Wednesday again...already.....wasn't it just Wednesday a day or so ago? Time just seems to fly faster and faster!! Someone or something knows that my 40th birthday is around the corner and is pushing me closer and closer to it!! Well, I don't mind turning 40 very much anymore because I am getting a fabulous birthday present. Yesterday my husband gave me a few surprises!! It was our 10 yr wedding anniversary and he surprised me with not going to work last night and a meal at my favorite mexican joint and a ride on the Harley. That right there made for an amazing day!! But, to top it off, he asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I told him that I wanted Beth to come for my birthday party. Guess what...he is making it happen!! Beth will be here for my 40th birthday...seems only fitting since I was just out there for her 50th. I am beyond excited!!

You probably came here to see a layout using the 12th sketch from PageMaps, found on page 31....okay okay, I'll stop blabbing and get on with it. This sketch was a 8-photo 12x12 double layout. Of course I had to modify it....I'm not sure if my layout even resembles the sketch anymore...but trust is based on the sketch...just loosely!

I used some of my new paper from Echo Park - Springtime Collection. I had a few arguments with my sewing machine on this one, hence the crooked stuff at the top of the page. It's okay....just adds character! (at least, that's my story and I'm stickin to it!) I just had to add a bow on my Ziva's ear to make her look like the princess that she is. I am so in love with her..she truly is my sunshine, unless it's 5am and she thinks she is starving and has to have breakfast RIGHT NOW!! 

Well, that's it for me today. I've got some projects to get working on and hopefully get ahead on some things. I also have an announcement to make...but I'll share that with you later this week. 

Have a great day!!


  1. OMG Kristina, Ziva is adorable, and your LO of her is beautiful. How exciting having your 40th, I remember mine (10 years ago now) I had a fancy dress party, and all my guests had to come dressed as a pop star. I had elton john, the spice girls (men and women!!) I was boy goerge with long plaits, tina turner showed up, stevie wonder was bumping into people!! 70 people ALL dressed up....It was fab. I raised over £700 that night for the Autistic society (no pressies just cheques for the cause!) I wish you as much fun as I had. Debbiexx

  2. There are SO MANY things I want to say that I don't even know where to start.... First.. this layout is SO DANG CUTE... I love that picture of Ziva...and how you created a scene for the sweet...the photo makes me grin from ear to ear... and if that didn't do it...well my plane ticket to be with YOU!! sure did!! Whoot Whoot... I even put a countdown ticker on my this is going to be the longest 48 days of MY LIFE waiting to get out there and celebrate your birthday with you!!! Love you muchly!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox Oh and Rick is the BEST... I will owe him big for this gift for a long long time!!! :-)

  3. Ziva is such a cutie pie. Love that tree on the page. Have fun for your 40th! :)

  4. Awww, what a sweet page,Kristina! LOVE that photo of Ziva! How beautiful she is. Crissy would love her. ;) Really fun layout. I love the tree and the scattering of butterflies. Love the sunshine banner, too.
    I'm SO excited for you that Beth is going to come out for your birthday. How cool that you don't have to wait very long until you get to see her again. That is, indeed, a fabulous birthday present.

  5. What a cute layout! This photo of your Ziva is absolutely adorable!! I love the banner at the bottom and the colors are fun. Great work!

  6. I can tell she brings you much joy! I have to laugh. At first I thought that bow was somehow clipped to her ear for the photo, until I saw the page enlarged. So cute!


I have to admit...I LOVE comments!! Thank you so much for stopping by my little piece of the world. Have a great day!
