When you are a kid birthdays are the best! When it is your 1st birthday it's all about the icing on the cake! Mandie captured some GREAT pictures of her son eating cake for the first time and did a fun layout to celebrate that memory!
This is such a fun layout! I love how she printed her pictures wallet-size so that she could use all the gooey photos without having to make it a two-page spread! I also love the black background it really makes the pictures and the banner pop on the page!
Of course we all fall in love with all that yummy birthday themed paper but what to do with it after you have made a few pages??? Mandie sure had the right idea and made cards that could be a gift on their own! I may have to try some of these! They are so bright and fun!
These could even be a great embellishment on a birthday page!
Cards can be a fun way to experiment with those border punches and use the phrase images on patterned paper! That "Celebrate" card is an image right from the paper! Rather than covering with a picture on a layout Mandie cut the image out and made a card out of it! I love all her many uses with the rickrack this month! Way to go Mandie!
