Eighth Birthday Joy

Hi all.  I think you've probably figured that I'm not a huge double layout per, but once in a while, there comes a layout that has too many photos to do in just one page. Birthday pages are just that. Too many photos you want to scrap and record, and this time I had a great birthday paper collection to work with.

One of the things I love about My Creative Scrapbook kits (and I've been subscribing to the kits for five years now), is that they always bring out a birthday themed collection every year, around March or April. Having the kit come during this time period means I won't procrastinate about scrapbooking those party layout.

Eight Is Great
This paper line is so much fun, with bright colours, patterns with balloons and candles. I hand cut the uneven green scallop for added detail. I also broke out some of my oldest scrapbooking tools: patterned scissors to add interest to the circles.
I cut the balloons out of one of the papers and added stickles on the dots to match the title.
The MCS kit came with one paper straw, which I cut up and added "flames" to. Wish I had another one though, so I could have eight candles.

Products Used
Patterned papers, tags and blue glitter dot chipboard letters from R Memory Keepers Hip Hip Hooray! collection
Bingo card tags from Jenni Bowlin
Jeweled brads from Echo Park
White, blue and yellow cardstock from stash
Baker's twine

Thanks for stopping by,
