You've Come a Long Way baby . . .

Justin's 1st Birthday Party Invitation

June/July Issue just in

Cricut Birthdays Idea Book

Wow, I've been so impressed by all of the non-scrappers that know what a cricut is and those that use it regularly!!!!! Many for school bulletin boards, classroom, cake decorating and the latest is BIRTHDAYS!!. Cupcake toppers, banners, invitations, etc. we have seen some really cute creations!!!

Birthday parties have come a long way baby-I was pretty darn proud of myself 18 years ago with my little Peter Rabbit Book Invitation for Justin's first birthday party-it was hand-traced with a pencil & colored in with crayons by Dane and we were so proud!!!! Now today . . . just a few chirps from the cricut & voila!!! I can't wait to flip through this Birthday issue for many, many ideas (although, not sure if i can use anything for my 23 year old birthday coming up LOL)

Pardon my reminiscing . . . Justin was a HUGE Peter Rabbit fan-maybe because that was how his nursery was decorated and I read the books all of the time ha ha. Ok, so maybe his mom was a big Peter Rabbit fan. But before scrapbooks & putting all of creative energy into Memory Mania-I was obsessed with birthday parties--my really special memories are the ways we prepared for the parties (Dane, Justin, Mallory & Mrs. Judy) -really more fun than actual party!!!

Ok, so your laugh for today . . .

One of my first scrapbook layouts created 13 years ago!!!

For the Peter Rabbit Party we recreated the garden with a white fence and really large cut outs of vegetables & seed packets on sticks - I'm having to look a scrapbook page to remember all of the details-the game was finding the most hidden vegetables in the garden, etc. Its kind of hard to tell since i cut all of these pictures with scallop scissors-and check out the Mrs. Grossman stickers ha ha. OK, stop laughing, life was really tough before scrapbook stores.
