Who said that 40 is over the hill?

I think 40 is the prime of your life! Since I didn't want a dreery black party for my 40th birthday I decided that a fun, brightly colored, luau was the way to go. It shows off my personality better too.

I was really inspired by the lastest Stampin' Success magazine. If you are a demonstrator you receive this subscription each month for free. It's got a lot of fun ideas for workshops, scrapbook pages, cards, there's also challenges you can enter to win free stamp sets.

One of the things I noticed was a flower pot made of our cardstock to look like leaves. I really wanted to make something fun with my Design a house so I took Jessica's old house that she decorated for Christmas and tore all the paper off of it. Here it is before:

Now here's the new house I made:


I tore the door and the chimney off too. Kinda fun ripping everything off. LOL.

Here's the side views.








I'm so excited about my party this Saturday. I've been making decorations all over the house with the colored vinyl sheets and the Fun Flowers die. I'll show you when I have time. But I have to go help my hubby fix up the turtle habitat right now.
