2 layouts to start the week....

I created this first layout from pictures of my son's 9th birthday. I embossed the yellow cardstock with the happy birthday cuttlebug folder. I added the red, green, blue and yellow buttons on the curve which made it go perfectly for a challenge in one of my Yahoo groups. We are doing a game virtual crop and this challenge was Twister! Create a layout with red, green, blue and yellow circles! Truly I didn't even mean to follow it...I just realized it after the fact! LOL. I have noticed I'm doing a lot of embellies on a curve lately. Bling on Kate's layouts and buttons or brads on Nick's.

I have really been wanting the top note die from Stampin up but finances have gotten in the way. So to get the 'feel' of that that die for free, I freehanded a bigger version out of a sheet of patterned paper for the base layer of this layout. For the journaling I sat my 4 year old down and asked her to tell me all of her favorite things about her grandma. I journaled it as she rambled on. :) I used skittles (dew drops) to border the journaling to the left. I used my threading water punch on the right side. I also used staples for the first time!
