Good morning all and welcome to the Lordy, Lordy Look Who's 40 Blog Hop organized by our very own Jenn of Cardstock and Coffee. You should have come from Shelley's blog. Some gals will have a project each day and some may only have one or a few, so make sure you follow along each day and leave everyone some love on their blogs. I will have a project a day and blog candy at the end of the week.
Before we get to the project, here is the blog lineup in case you get sidetracked:

Here we have a simple layout that I created using items I had in my scrapping stash. I do not tend to do layouts without pics in mind. This is the second time I have done so and like the results. I used the brads to give the flowers some bling. The borders at the bottom corresponded well with each other and the balloons added a nice flair. I am not sure who's birthday I will be using this for but I am sure it will mark a momentous occasion.
