For my birthday, I treated myself to a hot stone massage. I took the day off from work and concentrated on renewing myself. I enjoyed the relaxing experience and was thankful that I could spend time with my mom too. I also took my first selfie at 42 years old! Hooray for me!
My mom and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch at The Cheesecake Factory. I love it when we share stories! The next day we went to the Scrapbook Expo in Pleasanton. We shopped & bought lots of goodies!
Another part of my birthday was spend celebrating my heritage. My godfather cooked a traditional Greek food for me and we enjoyed it drenched in honey. It was a beautiful day and I loved getting my flowers!
This week revolved all around the comforts of home after long work days, indulging in my guilty pleasure of getting my nails done and decorating the house for Spring and Easter!
I got experience more of my cultural heritage at my cousin's birthday which was held at a Greek restaurant in Healdsburg, CA. I had delicious Greek food, listened to live Greek music and even danced with my cousin & my sister. We had a great time and it was nice to see my cousins on a gorgeous evening!
For all of my Project Life pages, I used a variety of kits ranging from my monthly kits from Studio Calico and Gossame Blue to the Project Life core kits & the Seasons mini kit. I used flair, washi tape, enamel dots and die cuts as embellishments on these pages. I added the program from the Scrapbook Expo in an 8.5X11 page protector in my album too. I used Design A page protectors for the most part, but my birthday layouts were in Design G. I decided to introduce a new style, but I found out that this style is smaller than Design A.
Stay tuned for more excitng creative projects in April! I'll be participating in 2 blog hops! I will be a Guest Blogger for Every Day Rituals! I'll also be taking part in a Cricut die cut swap too! Paper and glue will be flying around in my craft room! I'm really excited about all of these new projects on the horizon!
