Something Sweet to Share!

Happy weekend greetings to you! 

I totally forgot to share something!  Last week I had the honor of hosting over at the Imaginisce blog.  The project that I shared is one of my favorites, so I wanted to post is here as well.  If you'd like to see my post at Imaginisce, click here.

This cupcake mini album was created using the Birthday Bash line from Imaginisce, a Kaisercraft mdf album, my Cricut Expression and the Sweet Treats cartridge.  For the cover, I took out my tried and true crimper to give a realistic cupcake feel to the bottom of the mini.  You'll notice a litte silhouette cutting on the main photo to feature Woody from Toy Story. 

Some of my favorite extras on here are the i-Top brads and the i-Rock gems.  They really make the album pop!
I cut a rocket shape and used a little stickles on it, then foam dots to disguise the candles...  plus it adds a little arrow action to direct your attention to the next page.  I cut the "Happy Birthday" banner out and a balloon.  Included is a hidden journaling tag.

Now we're getting into the fun bits of memories from his 3rd birthday!  What a fun loving kid!  He just cracks me up at what he always comes up with.  He'll look at you and say..  "That's a great idea!"... and you just have to nod most of the time and say YES it is sweetheart!

This final page was a combination of a photo from his real birthday party celebration at Chuck E. Cheese and of his first big gift that he opened on his birthday at home first thing in the morning.  Of course it was a Toy Story birthday, so he got the Woody doll that you see on the front cover and Bullseye the horse.  It's almost a year later and he still loves those toys!

Thanks so much for letting me share with you today!  I hope you have a splendid weekend and remember to snap pictures of all your fun too!
