A Birthday Layout

We recently celebrated our baby hitting double digits.  Eden is the third of 3 girls, therefore making it a little difficult to know what to get her for Christmases an birthdays.  This year, however was an exception.  Eden is a HUGE Taylor Swift fan, and Taylor just happened to be coming to Winnipeg the weekend after Eden's birthday.  We decided to splurge on our baby, and get her a gift she wouldn't forget for a while: a couple of tickets to the show.


Even though I prefer the look of only one or two photos on a page, I just had to make an exception and scrap all of these photos on the same page.  The look of sheer elation on her face was so perfect I wanted to include the series of photos on my layout.  The Chic Tags Birthday Cake Collection was, of course, just perfect to document this big occasion in our home.

Here are a few close ups.



I just love the way this one turned out.  Just one piece of patterned paper, some chipboard pieces from the Crate Paper The Pier Collection, and some Chic Tags.

I also used a few of the Birthday Cake Tags to make our teacher Thank You cards for the year.  Same sentiment, so I figured why not.


And with that we officially begin our Summer Holidays.  So far July looks pretty packed, a possible trip out to Saskatchewan and Calgary for all of us and 3 days later a trip to CHA in Vegas for me.  It'll be here before I know it.  Any of my bloggy friends going to be there?  I have a few more projects waiting to make their way onto the blog so keep your eyes open for them.

Have a wonderful day all!

I love the LO and the gift was a very thoughtful one! So fun to document! Enjoy CHA! Traditionally it was in Chicago and I have gone in one way or another a couple of times since I live near the city, but this year it's out of my reach. I'll plan to live vicariously through all the posts by you and other crafters who are going;-)! Thanks for all you share!
