Sweet Birthday Memories

This layout is of my mom's birthday this past year. The PP is Momenta A Family Affair 5Pg Kit.The ribbon is American Crafts Premium Ribbon that I got on clearance at TJ Maxx. I believe I got the paper set from TJM as well.The title "sweet birthday memories" is actually a journaling card- I just decided to leave the border off the since the paper is so busy and I didn't want to cover the corner- it's from the August Life of the Party Simple Stories Happy Day Signature Elements 4x6 Journaling Card Elements that I won from Housecalls by: Scrappin' Madge (http://heartstringdesigns.blogspot.com/) and the big pink paper doily is from the same kit! The "mom" sticker is K&Company Family Mini Accents. The party hat and the gift stickers are from my stash- I've lost the original packaging. The flower brad is K&Company Butterflies & Flowers Brads. The journaling sticker/circle and the stickers on both sides are also part of A Family Affair Kit. The green floral arrangement is Studio G and the gift brad is Martha Stewart Crafts Modern Festive Fabric Brads. I wrote on the journaling circle- Mama's 58th Birthday! Her cake was Purple Velvet. Her cake was bought at the last minute, because her birthday is 3 days before Christmas and she usually doesn't want a cake. Dustin called me while we were in Walmart and asked if we were getting her a cake. His dad wanted to get her gift there and I already had her gift. I bought her a notepad with a big "L" on it and a pen that came with it and gave her one of my cards that I made. Dustin decided to get her a cake from Harris Teeter and picked this cake out. He wanted to make sure she liked red velvet cake which this cake tasted just like, but was purple velvet. All this time my mom is sitting in the car with Emily and he's texting her and talking to her on the phone and then called me- all without my mom knowing what was going on! LOL! I had to buy some things for myself in Walmart. She loved the cake and all her gifts! I don't remember all her gifts, but the main thing is she had a good day! Oh, the purple crystals on the outside of the cake were pieces of candy and the icing was cream cheese icing, of course! Yummy!! :)   Please don't forget to leave me some love/comments and become a follower if you aren't already. I want to giveaway a lucky crafter a chipboard album or 2 and maybe some stickers- once I hit 75 followers. I'll take a picture soon and post another entry about it here on my blog. TFL and have a great day! :)
