Before I get to my project I must say, "Happy Birthday Connie!!!" Now on to my project. I decided to make a 2 page layout of Tyler's- my little brother- 8th Birthday. His birthday was last November 2, but we celebrated November 1 after Sunday lunch- spaghetti! The following pictures is of the cake, him excited about the cake, and blowing out the candles. The 12 x 12 paper for both layouts is from DCWV All About Boys 12 x 12 Stack, the border paper on both layouts is from a Colorbok Assorted set that I bought from Big Lots- it's called Cinnamon, rainbow washi tape strips on both layouts is Studio G, I used birthday confetti 6 x 6 paper from my stash as the mats for the top 2 pics, the party hat and star sticker with the streamer are Recollection Happy Birthday Collection, the Make a Wish and so thankful for you chipboard stickers are Studio G.
second layout- you can see I decided to use pieces of the birthday confetti on this layout as well
I typed the journaling out on the computer- Top row: card and Darth Vader from Daddy & Tammy- he's shaking the Darth Vader Lego set First 2 pics on middle row: card & Despicable Me paint/activity book from me Card on middle row & pics on last row: gifts from Emily & Brian. I matted the journaling and the title on pieces of green Best Occasions Textured 12 x 12 Paper. I will include the picture of Darth Vader in May for May the 4th Be With You- Star Wars- Blog Hop so please come back in May to see that layout!
both layouts together
 That's all I have to share today.


 Up next is SARAH (http://www.sarahbiswabic.blogspot.com) and I'm sure she has something beautiful to share!
