Birthday Boy!

Hello and welcome to this Friday's SOUS die cut challenge: Balloons!  I followed this "Mother of Boy's" sketch on Pinterest.

So I can be pretty lazy about actually scrapping events that happen in my home. Birthdays, holidays and vacations seem to get pushed back constantly over "that cute random photo I really want to use".  With this week's challenge, it just made sense for me to dust this photo off and finally scrap about my son's 4th birthday.

I also incorporated TBD die cut file from "Out of this World" onto this LO. See the little blue alien . . .

He's covering his ears cause he thought that birthday candles would be just as loud as fireworks!!  So cute!

Thanks for stopping by! Please go to the SOUS blog for more inspiration!

Thanks to my sister's influence, I also used rub-ons on this LO.

Balloons are from Cricut: Create a Critter. I cut off the "paper string" and added twine in it's place.  I decided not to do the "face" from that cartridge.

  1. Vivian, that layout is just adorable. What a cute little boy. I love the whole design and its elements.

  2. I'm pretty sure I stared at this LO for two full minutes. The photos look really great! I love all the details and the great color mix. That alien is adorable and you know I have a soft spot of aliens! I'm pretty sure I gave you those letters and that 7Gypsies ephemera piece :) WTG making them look awesome! What's that Kraft grid background paper? Rocks my socks. I also prefer random photos over events!

  3. Love your layout - great color combo!
