Old School Birthday Wishes for Day 2 of the Blog Party!

In our family, my daughter's birthday on Saturday kicked off a major birthday month for us. We have 6 birthdays left to celebrate between now and September 2. For today's layout, I used the fun Girl's Paperie paper to make a birthday layout for my son. I cut the star out of the yellow cardstock from the kit, then added the pleated circle created with the reverse side of the Sassafras Lass papers, a large Cosmo Cricket button, and a "couch button" Sassafras brad. The "6" was cut out of the reverse of the Girl's Paperie plaid paper, then glazed over with some Liquid Glass. To make my plaid/number paper stretch, I cut the 10x7 (ish!) paper in two to create a strip of 10x4-1/2 and 10x2-1/2, then hid the fact that this was done with the layout of my photos.

  1. Your layout is fun! I love the star with the little blue flower and button and brad! Cute! Anyway, still love the flowers in the kit because of the variety and colors!

  2. I like all the cute embellishments in the old school kit, the little tickets are great and I'm a flower girl.... so all the bright flowers are my favorite, love the bling in the center of the lil ones.

  3. WOW! This is a fun LO! LOVE that paper--it is very masculine on this page--I would not have used it like this--so thanks for inspiring me:) I also like the distressed edges with the red ink! CLEVER! Even more masculine--note to self:: must try!

    As for me--I still like the letters and the embellies--so many fun little trinkets in the kits:)

  4. I love the tiny alphas in the July kit! And that you have circles & square tiny alphas to mix it up a bit.

  5. Love love the layout, As I told Kim I love to see the colors, they are perfect.
    I am a hoarder -I mean collector of yummy papers so I think that is one of my favorite things about any of your kits. There is such a good variety.

  6. Oh man, no contest, it's My Mind's Eye Best Thing Ledger Girl. But I love both the July and August kits!! I love that you've picked bright colors and fun patterns. And yay! Now I follow you, so I'll be in the loop!
