1 Happy Birthday Girl

When I scrapbook, I try to clean up after myself. I do have my own little spot to scrapbook, but it's little. And the scraps get out of hand quickly. If I clean up between projects, it saves me some time and sanity. But when I created the birthday layout in the previous post, I didn't bother to clean up. So the next time I sat down I was staring at some Jillibean Soup papers and some more birthday photos. So I created this!


My daughter's birthday is in September and we usually don't have to worry about the heat. But her party happen to fall on the hottest day of the month. It was SO hot and we had a bouncy house in the backyard that pretty much baked all the kids. That is why her face is so red!! Despite the heat, she was very excited about her ice cream sundae.

I love all the different Jillibean alphabet fonts!


And a birthday banner for the birthday girl.


And after creating this, I actually did clean up my mess. So you probably won't see too many more birthday layouts for a while! I hope your week is going well, thanks for stopping by today!

This is just such a sweet layout. Good think you didn't clean up. I have that paper pack, and you have given me some fun ideas about more ways to use it, so thanks for the inspiration.
