National Scrapbook Day (Extended Version)

Still celebrating National Scrapbook Day a day later.  Here's my second completed challenge for the challenges offered over at Pumpkin Spice.  Go check them out and join in on the fun. 

Challenge - 
Make a LAYOUT - any size, even a mini album layout with the following elements

  • the color yellow
  • something floral, wavey or scrolly
  • at least 1 title

To celebrate Lou's birthday, Daulton and I took her out to Outback Steakhouse, she was craving steak and Daulton LOVES the Aussie fries (and steak).  We can really tell that he is indeed a growing boy....he ate his entire meal and an order of Aussie fries.  Pretty soon I will need to take out a loan (or put him to work) when we go out to eat.  :o)

I used the Celebrate with Flourish Cricut Cartridge and some cardstock from my scrap pile.  I'm feeling good about using up my scraps. 

Casey (THANKS Casey!) gave me some twine and I've been having fun trying to figure out what to do with it.  I know one thing is for sure...I can't tie a little bow for anything...if you have any tips for great little bows please let me know.

Here's a close up of the balloon.
