4 Birthday layouts

I have been wanting to scrap my grandson's first birthday party photos for quite some time but just didn't have the right papers and couldn't find them in my local stores.  Crafty Steals had a cute kit by My Mind's Eye the other day and I ordered quickly!!  It arrived yesterday and I finally got to use it today.  In fact, I used up the whole kit with these 4 layouts.  I hope you enjoy them.

With Deepest Sympathy, Feelin' Crabby & Maddie

I have made 2 cards and a layout so far today.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

 The blue cardstock is from Stampin' Up.  The pattern paper is K&Company Susan Wright mat stack.  The crab was cut from Pack Your Bags cartridge as well as the sentiment.  I used google eyes and a frown stamp from Peachy Keen.
 This layout was for a  challenge at Colorful Creations.  The only requirement was to make a rosette using a border punch.  I used a MS scallop edge punch for mine.  I also used a Basic Grey button and baker's twine.  The pink cardstock is Recollections.  All other papers and embellies are from Me & My Big Ideas paper pad.  The pictures are of my granddaughter at her 3rd birthday party to Chuck E. Cheese.
I have a friend whose mother passed away this week so I made this card to send to her.  The blue cardstock is Stampin' Up.  The pattern paper is Pink Paislee.  The ribbon is Heidi Grace.  The rhinestones are Paper Studio.  The sentiment is a Stampabilities stamp.

Layout and a tag

I have a layout and a tag to share with you this evening.  They are both for challenges at Colorful Creations.

 For the tag challenge were were to use blue, green and purple and a punch.  I embossed my tag with a Cuttlebug folder.  I inked it with distress inks Peeled Paint, Dusty Concord and Broken China.  I also used versamark ink and used sparkle embossing powder for shine.  The punch is Fiskars.  The flowers are Recollections.  The pearls are Stampin' Up.  I used green/white, purple/white and blue/white baker's twine also.
This layout was for use your stash and requirements were glimmer mist, cardstock, border punch, brads and alphas.  I used pink and blue glimmer mists that I made myself.  The punch is MS.  Everything else came from my scrap stash.
