"month by month" layout and a card

I've had a busy day!!!!! Wink Of course, I didn't exercise as planned, because I wanted to get the layout done.

In fact, I went to my crop corner to work on it when I realized that my goddaughter's birthday is on Saturday and I hadn't made her a card yet. So I made that first, with the intent on getting it in today's mail. Wouldn't you know, the mailman came about 90 minutes early?! Ay yi yi. I'm tempted to drive to the post office just so that it arrives on her birthday. She lives in Iowa, so it has to travel a distance. And I even put a sticker back thing over the cake because the stickles weren't completely dry, and I didn't want the card being stuck shut.

The cake is cut out of the actual card, and the colored papers are behind it (instead of the cake being a cut out that's stuck to the card)

And here's the layout where I asked for help on twice ... once for the multi-photo layout (I ended up silouetting Jack out of each picture) and once for the patterned paper to make the little elephants with the text as the background.

edited ... after looking at the layout posted, I completely rearranged it so that the oldest picture is under the newborn. I like it much better!

oooh, the card is darling! Smile It makes me want to buy myself (instead of always borrowing) it.

I love how you got the pics of Jack and the elephant each month. So cute on a layout like that to see him grow.

no, I didn't. Sad I'm hoping that the postal system is efficient. Wink
