Young at Heart.

Challenge YOUrself blog has revealed the August challenge today and because it is owner Lynn's Birthday month we are challenging you to scrap about YOUR AGE!
I am quite a positive person about my age, with my glass half full (most of the time!) so this challenge didn't make me jittery. Plus I had some pretty new papers to play with which always helps my mojo!
I couldn't resist these Teresa Collins papers and even paid full price for them!! But with all the gorgeous flowers that were just crying to be fussy cut how could I turn them away?
Well if you didn't know before I am 49 next month and that can only mean the BIG 50 next year! But I have decided that I am only half way through my life, yes I will live until 100 as I want a Birthday card from the Queen, oh but by then it will probably be the King!
My title sums me up!
Happy scissor time with this flower!
Although the sheet of paper with these flowers on has a different style to the one above they are in the same line and so they got added too!

So are you cringing at the thought of  announcing your age to the world or are you going to shout it from the rooftops (at least share a layout about it!). Why not scrap about YOU for a change instead of the rest of the family/world and link it to us at Challenge YOUrself HERE. 
Don't forget to head over to the CY Blog and see the pages the rest of the DT have created to celebrate their age.

Thanks for stopping by.
