Linnie Bloom's 12x12 Canvas Layout

Hello Crafters!

Today is a good day!  It's actually my birthday! Woohoo!! :) I am 43 today and I'm very thankful for alot but first and foremost, I am thankful for another year of life.  And to celebrate, Hubby is taking me out to dinner and a movie, if we can stay up that late! LOL

But before I start to celebrate my birthday, I wanted to share with you a 12x12 canvas layout I made with Linnie Bloom's Canvas products.  
I had so much fun creating this layout!  I played around with some mixed media to create a textured background on the canvas and love how it came out!  I also used different Linnie Bloom's canvas pieces throughout the layout. Here are some close ups:
