Birthday Scrapbook Day at My Cricut Craftroom

Hi!  Thanks for stopping by today for scrapbook Friday at My Cricut Craft Room!  Today's theme is Birthday.

I made a scrapbook layout for my daughter's 30th birthday, believe me, after a year of wedding crafting in nothing but pink and silver, I am soo ready for some other colors in my life, but I figured I may as well do one more non-wedding thing of my daughter, so pink it is!  But I didn't have much pink paper left. I was lucky to find enough left overs to mat these four small photos and I am determined not to buy any more pink paper for at least 6 months.

All images were cut from the Celebrations cartridge.  "Happy Birthday" was cut in all three layers at 3".  The balloons were cut on shadow at 2 1/2".  I used the Party Time paper stack from My Minds Eye and the 3&0 are stickers from Thickers. I used coordinating paper to mat the photos twice and border the bottom of the page.  I used the same paper and cut out the party hats that are pop dotted on the photos. I added some Stickles in cotton candy to the letters for just a little shine and black licorice to the balloon strings.  The green glitter strip over the bottom border is actually tape from Recollections I found in a $1 bin at Michael's.

I hope you enjoyed my layout and here's hoping the pink is out of my life, at least for a little awhile!

Make sure you check out all the other projects like mine at My Cricut Craft Room today!
