Frosted Four and a Freebie

Hi!  Sorry that I haven't made it around to check out everyone's blogs lately.  As I mentioned in my last post, I've been very busy with my university class and only finding time to make small things here and there.  Speaking of small things, here is one that I made recently.
Supplies: carstock from Neenah Paper; paint from DecoArt; ink from Tsukineko; glue from Elmer's; beads from my stash.

Why would I make a "frosted" paper four?  Because this happened...

Yes, I turned forty.  I can't wait to scrapbook my birthday photos.  I still have the paper four, and I hope to incorporate it into my page design as an embellishment.

My class ends in early May, so things will be back to normal soon on my blog.  In the meantime, I wanted to share this free printable from Shimelle.  It's perfect for birthdays, or for any time really.  You'll find a link to the full-sized printable at the bottom of this post.  Cheers!
