They say it's your birthday.....

Today it's my Birthday!!! I am trying to get myself excited about it. lol!

Dh took me to a LSS (okay not that local it was a bit of a drive) and then out to lunch at Ruby Tuesdays. Guess what I got myself for my birthday? A clip it up!

They let me use a coupon on it too so I got it for only 36.00! I am thrilled! I now need to save money for the upper tier. I love how much stuff I can fit on this thing.


This is how it looked when I first put it together. I had so much other stuff to put on it that wouldn't fit I tried to think of a way to get more on. So I decided to take a lot of stuff out of its packaging and put it in little baggies instead. Yes , it's a lot less colorful and eye catching, but it holds a lot more and that's more important to me now.


It looks kinda funny as I'm using it for all my embellishments so I don't really have anything really long hanging from it. Once I get the upper tier I have smaller baggies and I will hang embellishments I have less of. It's nice to be able to easily turn it and see what stuff I have!

I also got these Prima flowers, stickles, and adhesive pearls as well. What a fun birthday shopping trip! I went to Family Memories in Charlotte. The women there are VERY nice and helpful. It was worth the trip!


Here's a card I made the other day but hadn't had time to post yet. I had fun with my cuttlebug as you can tell.

Paper-MME (pink) other paper-Misc.
Accessories-Cuttlebug embossing folders, dew drops, Marvy Uchida scalloped punches, brillance ink pad.

And I did promise some BLOG CANDY on my birthday! So post me a comment and I will choose a winner and send something your way. This time it will be a surprise! Thanks for stopping by!!!

Happy Birthday Samantha! Looks like you have a FANTASTIC birthday! You'll have to post another photo when you get the upper tier of the clip it up, but WOW, it sure looks like the bottom tier alone holds a lot! Your craft room looks really great too! I love your other goodies, and the card you made is gorgeous! Enjoy the rest of your birthday weekend!! Happy Easter!

Happy Birthday! Wonderful card--I have a couple of small embossing folders but have yet to use them but now that I've seen such a pretty card using them, I may break them out tomorrow after the Easter celebrations are finished.

Have a wonderful birthday (what is left of it) and Happy Easter!!

Happy, happy birthday! I was up at 7 this morning waiting for your birthday post. Then, we had to leave at 8:30 to go to the jocky lot in Anderson with my daughter. We just now got in. I live 1 hour from Charlotte, NC and have never heard of the store you went to. I have to look it up! I love the clip it up and eye it at Scrapbook Creations every week. I like that they use it to display sample cards. Glad you had a fun shopping trip and Ruby's too! What a good honey you have.

Heather Summers said...

OK, WOW!!! Love all the organization stuff you've been showing. It's been a few days since I've been on your blog and WOWSERS it's fantastic! I want to devour your ribbon....looks so pretty, and the clip it up...FUN!!! Love the card too!!!

Happy belated birthday to you Samantha...it sounds as if you had a WONDERFUL day....A chauffer (aka DH;makes for great quality time), lunch and a shopping trip to your fave LSS that netted you some awesome prizes! What a great day you must have had! Thanks for thinking of all of us and wanting to share! :)

Happy Birthday to you!!

I love it when it is my birthday as it just a day that is special to me. I too have a March birthday and sometimes I even have to share it with Easter...which is fun as I get twice the goodies.

I love your scrap space wishing that I had one just like it but alas I don't...oh well thanks for offering to share blog candy for your birthday.

Mandiannie said...

Happy Birthday. I think I prefer the flip-and-find over the clip-it-up, but I like seeing it with others that have the room to spare. i don't think I'd have enough stuff to fill even 1/8th of that.

Elaine said...
