This layout started with the awesome Project Life Add-On Stamp. I used the frame and the #selfie stamps from this set which set the theme: Yours truly and turning forty in a few months. Eek.
I used the twine in the Orion Add-On Kit to stitch two papers together at the bottom. Love the dimension it gives the page. The background "paper" is actually the wood veneer. The coolest, love the texture.
