H Is For Happy Layout for Lasting Memories #674

It's time for our last October challenge over at Lasting Memories, and  Maureen challenged us to create a Celebration themed layout (Christmas, New Years, Easter, or Birthday), so I grabbed some photos from my son's birthday party at Scandia - a local amusement park - and pulled together this layout. The month is almost over, so please hurry over to Lasting Memories to play along with this or any of our other October challenge!

This layout will have a facing photo storage page, so here are a few of the other fun things the kids did!

Party Invitation & Artiste Birthday stamp sets
March - April 2021 Mix In papers
Lagoon, Black & White Daisy cardstock
Candy Apple, Honey & Black ink
Childhood PML card
White acrylic hearts
Red enamel hearts

Cricut Artiste cartridge: Happy birthday pennant
Challenges: Cut It Up #289 Add a sentiment (mine is happy birthday on the die-cut banner at the top); Park Hopping My Happy Place Anything Goes with theme park inspiration (I was inspired by the local fun park where my son had his birthday party)

Hello Easter Layout for Lasting Memories #673

The latest Lasting Memories challenge is posted, and it's one that is probably dear to every scrapbooker's heart: use new scrapbooking supplies! Yes, that's right, whether you just purchased something recently or are looking for a good excuse to go shopping, pull that new product out of the package and get to work (or play, depending on your point of view). I chose some papers from CTMH's Dream Maker paper pack that I had purchased in May but never used because I was looking for just the right layout to start with. This one was it, and I love how the beautiful papers enhance my photos. You have until November 4th to play along with any of this month's challenges from Lasting Memories: hope to see you over there!
