I'm up too late, but I couldn't wait to finish this! It's a two page layout, it's been a while since I've done one of those!

The scalloped edges were cut with the Cricut Design Studio - designing that file took over 90 minutes!!!! I never thought it would have been a challenge to do that. I don't get along with the scalloped scissors, so was determined to make it work with the Cricut. Wink

Not sure if you can read it, but it says "ice cream sundaes" on the left side above the pictures.

That's one of my favorite layouts of yours' Gwen! It went in my scraplift folder! LOVE the scalloped edge so much. And the happy birthday strung across the pic on the first page. But I think the best thing was how you cut the heads on the pics and let them carry over into the pics above. Creative!

thanks! I totally lifted the idea of the layout from a layout in Scrapbooks Etc. Wink And the strung happy birthday is actually the banner hanging in the kitchen, it's part of the picture. But it sure looks cool the way it came out, I was thinking it looked like part of the page too.

I am still not quite sure how i feel about this... it might be too cluttered (for my taste anyway) but here is my entry:

I really like that, I don't think it's cluttered at all. My dh made fun of me when I wanted to 'celebrate' Kaitlyn's 1/2 birthday, so I didn't get to have a party, but it's such a cool idea!

Darn, I'm not sure I'm going to make it for this one. I just went to Walmart to print some photos from this past weekend. We celebrated DH, BIL and Kayson's birthdays at my inlaws in Ft. Worth, but I'm not sure I can complete this in the next couple hours! I haven't even started or worked it out in my head....off to try though..... Wink

((((phew)))) I just made it....with 1 hour 20 minutes to spare. Wink

Here is my entry. I needed to scrap these photos, so this was the perfect opportunity. We were at my inlaws this last weekend celebrating all the guy's birthdays. It's a 2-page LO. I wasn't trying to copy Gwen, but it kindof ended up similar. LOL I literally threw this together in the last hour. Not my best, but I'm happy to have an entry and have those pics scrapped. That's all that counts right?! Wink

Everyon'es pages are so cute. I managed to finish some from Andrea's birthday. My goal is to get the rest done this week from her first birthday (just in time for her 2nd birthday :lol:)
