Happy 9th Birthday

This was last years birthday. The big 9! This says two things to me, 1- I'm a bit (ok just between you and me a lot!) behind in my scrapbooking and 2- time just keep flying by! As I started going through my stash I came across Imaginisce B-day Bash Paper Pad! It was perfect for these pictures!
I did a lot of "fussy cutting" with this layout. I went through and cut out a few balloons out of a sheet and used some 3D foam dots on the back of some of the balloons to add some dimension. I also punched a small hole towards the bottom so I could tie on some bakers twine to each balloon! And for a finishing touch I added a glitter covered 9 to the balloon! LOVE a little bling. ;)
Then another sheet there were these wonderful circles of presents & cake! Perfect! Pulled out my circle punches and punched out a few and did the same thing here as the balloons, layered them and added some 3D foam dots for added dimension. Aren't they cute? The strip taking off to the right of them I used a scalloped punch on.
Now this part was a bit challenging! The pad had a gorgeous sheet that was covered in banners and I just HAD to figure out how in incorporate them :) I cut out the triangle banners and did some more "popping" up with the layering and the foam dots. Then I cut out letter by letter the Happy Birthday banner. The tops were a little long which was perfect for what I wanted to do next. I folded them over and "hung" each one on some plain white bakers twine I had .
I used a sketch from Page Maps for this layout. Great challenge going on over there right now. :) 
Thanks for stopping by! :)
