Choo Cho Choo! Happy Birthday to YOU!

Share

Have you been having fun with all the birthday celebrations going on at ScrapMatters?  If not, be sure to check out my previous post for the schedule of events... In the meantime, though, hop on board the INCREDIBLE blog train brought to you courtesy of the SM designers and CT.. You should have just come from Melissa's blog - http://yzerbear.blogspot.com/ - and I'm the caboose. .. saving the best for last, right?  ;)

Before I get to your freebie, I quickly wanted to share a special birthday memory that I have.. I was turning 15, and it didn't seem like any of my friends had remembered - tell-tale sign of surprise, I know.. Our ballroom dance class had just gotten out, and midway to the car, I was ambushed by some of the boys.. They blindfolded me, stuffed me in a car, and drove me all over town until I was thoroughly confused.. We finally stopped, I fumbled and stumbled to a table, where they took the blindfold off, and there, at the park, in the middle of the dark, was a fabulous cake with 15 glowing candles, as well as a few extra friends.. I don't know what it was about this birthday that makes it stick out in my memory- as you can see, nothing incredible happened, there wasn't any $5 million gift or vacation, just a bunch of my friends doing something special for me on my special day.. Does it get any better than that?  {cue sappy music here}

NOW - my portion of the blog train - a basic stacked paper, that can be used as a base to make a page all your own!


DOWNLOAD HAS EXPIRED

Since I'm the end, you can had back over to the ScrapMatters blog - http://scrapmatters.com/wordpress/ - to continue on with the train or to track down any stops you may have missed.. Hope you've enjoyed your journey, and that you have lots of fun with your new goodies .. Happy Scrapping!  :D
