I have some catching up to do....clearly! I'm just now doing a 1st birthday page for my 4.5 year old. Someone reassure me that some day I won't be 3 years behind!
I really enjoy doing layouts lately though, probably because I can get that much closer to filling the boys' albums! I decided to do this layout page because his 1st birthday was pretty generic (poor 3rd child). I didn't have a theme or do fancy invitations, so as you can see in the picture it was all about presents and cake! I wanted to use cuts that I could emboss as per the Whimsical Wednesday Happy Birthday Challenge. I am also entering it into the Paper Sundaes Challenge #69 Happy Birthday Christine!
I had a lot of fun with this layout! I would have normally only used 1 balloon (since he is only 1) but I thought that looked funny! I also stuffed some tissue paper behind the gift bag to make it look like a real gift :)
