Welcome to the Bucket List Birthday Blog Hop! It's going to be a lot of fun. Everyone is going to be showcasing items from their bucket lists and we will be wishing happy birthday to a number of August babies (including Michelle Hull, who is the host of this hop!).
If you arrived here from Lisa’s page, you are on the right track.  If you would like to start from the beginning and hop along with us, please go to MichelleHull’s page (our host).
Please remember to say Happy Birthday to the birthday people along the way & Happy Anniversary to Gill & Jim.
My project to showcase my bucket list was to make a place for my bucket list.  This list has been written for many years and then I misplaced it.  After 2 moves and a few years, I found it again.  It was amazing to remember what I had written and that I had already started accomplishing some of the items.  Needless to say, the list is misplaced again but when I find it, it will be placed in my frame and on the wall in my scrap room.

My supplies used were:
Everything from my personal stash....some was no longer in the packaging so I'm unsure of the maker.
The frame is from my attic
Tornal Adornament fibers
Gold Beading bought at JoAnn's
Lace around the frame bought at Joann's
Recollections Boutique Fleur swirls
Prima Flowers (my favorite)
Basic ribbon bought at Michael's
Butterflies were also bought at Michael's back in the floral department
The font is Script MT Bold (my personal favorite!) and was cut using SCAL2 on my computer
