Our theme is birthday cards
AND here is mine... :)

This is the front. I used the gorgeous SEI Happy Days birthday papers to make this card...the cupcakes are handcut from Make a Wish. The ribbon is a chocolate brown spotty My 2 Angels ribbon.

Now this card has a *little extra in it*

...open it up and....
Ta dah!!! It has a pop up birthday greeting banner!

The bling 'happy' is one half of the My 2 Angels bling happy birthday word, and I have used acetate as a pop up prop so it looks like it floats in air. The banner has been hand cut from SEI Happy Days paper range. The To You is the fabulous October Afternoon Thrift Shop 12 x 12 alphabet stickers.

good luck and thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Scrap Relay Competition

Hiya Everyone! Hope this finds you well, and I am hoping this lovely spring like winter weather breaks soon (no offence to sunshine and all that but my garden needs a drink!!!)
Today I have a LO to share that I have literally just finished (the kindyglitz is still drying LOL) as part of a birthday scrap relay competition being run at My 2 Angels. Everyone who put in to enter have been split into teams to scrap something on different days, with a different main birthday embellie required. We get our criteria the night before....my day is Tuesday (today) and my criteria was "cupcakes" on the page somewhere.... so I took the whole cupcake criteria and ran with it...Here is Birthday Cupcakes...

I decided to scrap the picture of Jessica's cupcake stack I made for her birthday. The title is one half a My 2 Angels rhinestone happy birthday, with cupcakes in Adorn it little letters. The lacy look around the edge of the great SEI Cake walk papers was done with a Martha Stewart deep edge punch.

I included my easy peasy basic cupcake recipe as journalling, done on a piece of coredinations cardstock that has been embossed with a Timmy folder.  (Tim Holtz Notebook Texture Fades embossing folder - given to me by the lovely Wendy for my birthday *mwah*. Wendy knows I have much love for Timmy stuff) At the top of the recipe, I have used 2 gorgeous My 2 Angels charms - a spoon and handmade hand - just coz they were so cute I couldn't resist. The cupcakes were cut from a piece of SEI Make a Wish paper, tickled with kindyglitz and popped behind the recipe with a folded wee little doily (more blog candy from the lovely Deb).
The rhinestone swirl was done by firstly stamping an Autumn Leaves double scroll stamp onto the cardstock backing with versamark ink. (which is REALLY hard to see on white but you can just glimpse it) Next I dotted along the stamped image with PVA glue (using a toothpick) and placed some loose clear rhinestones along the image. Et Voila! Your very own handmade glittery scroll image. I added more handcut cupcakes and some gorgeous My 2 Angels mulberry flowers (which did not escape the kindyglitz treatment either!!)

Materials Used:
Title: Rhinestone Happy Birthday, Carolees Creations Adorn It lettering.

Hop along to the My 2 Angels gallery to view all the competition entries as they come on in!!

Hmmmmm now I'm HUNGRY!!! LOL....Be back later...HUGS

Here is my take on it...

Ben at 6...
I decided that, being a birthday pic, I wanted to use bright colours - and what is brighter than Sassafras Lass?!! I used Sass Lass Apple Jack Translate and Nerdy Bird Spritely paper for the background and Sass Lass Apple Jack Glitter Alpha stickers for the banner and the word six.

The other background paper was the reverse side of a piece of SEI Happy Days Cake Walk paper.

For the title I used October Afternoon Thrift Shop alphabet stickers and coated them with dimensional magic to make them stand out on the bright paper.

I painted a buzz and bloom chipboard present with acrylic paint, then added a cute little bronze My 2 Angels love charm. It was the perfect size!

The journalling was a free font on my computer, printed onto cardstock and mounted onto chipboard.

Materials Used:
cardstock : coredinations
embellishments: My 2 Angels blue flower, My 2 Angels Antique Bronze Love Charm, Buzz and Bloom chipboard present, red button, die cut heart, old chipboard number, natural coloured crochet thread
products: dimensional magic, acrylic paint.
I loved the photo I used on this page - definitely not the most professional looking photo I have ever taken (LOL to that!!) but his little face looking down at his Ben10 birthday cake and declaring it the best ever cake was precious.

Check out the other fun birthday celebrations and competitions (like the team page relay!!) on the My2Angels blog and win win win...

Hugs til later!!!
