October Birthday


If you stopped by yesterday, you would have seen the Doodlebug birthday card I made for my dear friend. She loved it and we had a great time at lunch and enjoyed a little browsing the shops in downtown Apex. The weather was so warm so we sat outside for awhile to watch all that was going on and had a nice chat.

Today I have another birthday themed project to share. This is a page I created for my husband's birthday last month.

Here he and Christopher are getting ready to blow out the candle on his birthday chocolate chip cookie! ;)

I created the title with a couple Silhouette cuts and used some Pink Paislee patterned paper for the background. This patterned paper is a grid of autumn phrases you can cut apart and use individually on cards and pages, but I thought they would be fun to use intact and make it look like individual pieces stitched together.

My journaling was created with a couple Papertrey Ink thin metal dies for the mini envelope and notebook paper.

Because it's a birthday page and I wanted it to be festive, I created some rosettes using a Tim Holtz die and some 'Season's Greetings' papers from Echo Park.

Well, I'm going to taking it easy today since I'll be plenty busy in the kitchen tomorrow. If you are traveling today, I wish you a pleasant and safe journey! I'll be stopping in for a moment tomorrow to  leave you a Thanksgiving wish and card.

Kathy :)

How very cute, Kathy! I love those PP journaling cards, and love that you used the whole sheet as the background. Adding the stitching is a beautiful touch. Love the rosettes and the fun banner sentiment.
Thanks so much for sharing my birthday with me yesterday and for all the goodies and the delicious lunch. I had a great time and we had such a beautiful day to celebrate in!
