Birthday Bash

I stayed up way too late working on this last night, but it was fun anyway!!  Here is another layout of my son's first b-day party.  It's kind of hard to see, but there is a big tree in the middle (from Just Because Cards) with a pinata hanging from it and the monkey is swinging his bat at it.  Everything else is from the Birthday Bash cart.  TFL!

Have Your Cake and Eat It Too

I made another layout for my son's first birthday pictures.  I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to make at least two more for the party in order to include all the pictures I want to.  lol!  Looks like I'm on to album number 3 for my son's first year!!

The title and cake are from Sweet Treats, cut at 5".  The balloons are from Create a Critter, cut at 5".  The cat coming out of the cake is from Birthday Bash, cut at 6".  I used fit to length at 11.5" for the "one" collage from Graphically Speaking.  The papers are from The Paper Studio's Birthday Extravaganza stack.  Thanks for looking!!!

Layouts, Layouts, and More Layouts

I've been working hard, trying to finish up my son's first year album.  I want to have that finished before I really get going on my daughter's album.  If not, I'm afraid I would never get around to finishing it.  For his monthly pictures, I just kept the pages pretty simple.  I love the papers- from K&Company Actopus to Zelephant- and I didn't want to cover the cute designs up too much.  Here are months 4 through 12 minus month 10 (I already had months 1-3 finished).  As I was working on these, I realized that I never printed his 10 month pictures, so I now have them ordered and will finish that as soon as they get here.

 We got him this pony for his first Christmas.  He loved it!  He would always "snuggle" it by laying his head against the pony- adorable!!  The title is from Old West and the rocking horse is from B is for Boy.
 These cuts are from Old West.  This was a really simple, quick one.
 I LOVE these papers- from the Sassafras Bungle Jungle collection. These cuts are from Create a Critter.
 Create a Critter and Don Juan on this one.  Isn't that giraffe too cute?!  I think if I could only have one cartridge, CAC would be it!  The layering is so easy!
 Ok, I cheated and did two baby girl layouts.  :)  I can't wait to really get going on her album.  I used Simply Charmed on this one.
 I've posted this one before, but I actually have her photos in it now, so I thought I'd share again.
 I posted this one before, too, but now it has photos and is 10 times cuter.
 Baby's First Christmas.  I used Simply Sweet, Don Juan, and Hoot N Holler for the title and Winter Frolic for the nativity.
 Cuttin Up for the title, Simply Charmed for Santa and the chimney, Winter Frolic for the tree, and Create a Critter for the reindeer and lights.
 I used an EK Success punch to make it look like notebook paper.

That's it for now.  Thanks for looking!!
