A Blast From the Past

I made this LO for Scrappin-n-Chattin's Color Challenge. We had to do a LO using brown, blue, and green as the main color focus. I say this is A Blast From The Past, because it was my 9th birthday and my sister's 7th birthday. We had a party at McDonald's in Charleston, SC. The 3 picture backgrounds are from Basic Grey Pyrus 6x6 pad and the flower, heart, and journaling flower are also from Basic Grey Pyrus Collection. They are all from the goodies I received from Carol and they fit perfectly with this challenge! I had to include some birthday embellishments as well- the green balloon, the gift box, and the fun & games sticker on the birthday ribbon! I was off this past Monday and have been wanting to scrap so I made sure I made time! I went to the new Michael's here in The New Bern Mall last week and bought American Crafts Gel Pens which I used on the journaling! I'm excited that there's a Michael's in New Bern now and is in the mall not far from TJ Maxx!!

Love it! Have been wanting to go to Michaels but afraid I will spend too much money. Today my kids could not believe I drove right by it and didn't stop!!! :)

Beautiful LO!
We don't have Michaels here, but I discovered it when I first came to the USA. OMG... I spent way too much money there!
