Birthday Boy

Hi guys! What's up?

I'm in a reading mood and I had 5 new books downloaded to my kindle on Tuesday and have already read one book even though I had dental work done yesterday and didn't really feel so hot! So it has been hard to drag myself away from my book and come post. But for you I made the effort! lol

I thought I would share this Pink Paislee layout I made mostly at Color Connection. Isn't all of the Pink Paislee stuff gorgeous!?!? I think this is one of my favorite paper lines right now. It is so amazing in person! I wish it showed up as well in the photo. On the layout I used photos from my son, Quinn's 11th birthday. I made the flower by spraying Glimmer Mist on canvas Prima flowers and then painting them with some Glimmer Glam. The Glimmer Glam helps to let you form it into more of a flower shape kind of like starch.

Next I made a birthday card. I made it for a challenge at Sketches4all that Erin has going right now. The challenge is to make a project with a banner on it. Easy peasy. You should go enter!!

I stamped some different birthday sentiments on card stock and then I layered the banner across the card and wrote out Party Time. My card challenge at Sketches4all is to make a card using the theme/word TIME so I deliberately did the title this way so it would be a good example for my challenge. You can go enter my challenge too HERE.

Okay....back to my book! If you are readers, share your favorite book or a book you would recommend. I read most anything.
