You Know You're Old When

This is my second post for today, be sure to scroll for the Wee Memories post.


I was honored when I was asked if I wanted to participate in the Skipping Stones Blog Hop.

Happy National Scrapbooking Day, Skipping Stones Design style!!   We have put together a Blog Hop with our past and current FABULOUS designers.

If you just happened to stubble upon my blog today, your smack dab in the middle of this hop, start at the Skipping Stones Design Blog for the entire hop list.

If you just arrived from Barb's  blog, then you are right place!!  Hop along and see all the fabulous Scrapbook pages  made with Skipping Stones Design stamps!!!    I promise you will like what you see!!!!

Leave a comment on each blog (some are giving away prizes) and when you have finished, go back to the beginning at Skipping Stones Design and leave a comment, telling us what you thought of the hop.  One lucky commenter will be chosen Wednesday, May 11th to win the Skipping Stones Design may release stamp set!!!

For my layout I started with this sketch from The Scrappiest:



I used the set "You Know You Are Old When" to go along with this photo of me and my friends from several years ago. I stamped  the sentiments on some circles, stitched around them and then popped them up on foam squares.  I also used the Dandelion Dreams stamp set.  The paper and stickers are from Sassafras Lass Indie Girl.  

The journaling reads: I always thought the That Was Then article was about 'old people'.  Needless to say I was rather surprised when I saw this article in April 2011!  Guess I'm old!

Keep hopping along, run off too Karin's blog!!
