Mom’s 65th Birthday Celebration



This morning on the blog I’m stopping by to share a pretty layout I recently completed using the Flutter collection from Fancy Pants Designs. I’ve told you before in a previous post that I just love this collection, I love the colours….so I was determined to do another layout using it. Maybe another one yet too! I picked up this layout at my favourite LSS, My Stamping Studio in Windsor, NS. I’m heading down there this week for my birthday road trip actually! Look out Kelly, here I come!!

For this layout I decided to highlight a single photograph which I really cherish. It’s all the women, except for Grammie (90) and my SIL Jin who’s in Ottawa, on Mom’s side of the family. We aren’t often all together anymore it seems, as lives are very busy, but on this night we were and we were all dressed up so it was a great photo opp. We got together to go out to the dinner theatre and celebrate my Mom’s 65th birthday.

Here’s what I came up with, I really like the flower in the lower right hand corner. :


Aside from the papers and embellishments provided in the package by Fancy pants Designs, I used a pink ribbon from my stash, buttons and a cream doily also from my stash, foam dots, coordinating cardstock and inspiration from my friend Tracy McLennon, scrapbooker extraordinaire. You can see all her crafty greatness by checking her out on Pinterest as Scrappy Chick or on her blog here.

Mom’s 65th Birthday Layout


Good morning! Today I am stopping by the blog to share with you a layout I completed last weekend at the crop I attended  in the Valley. But before I start I want to say that I was lucky for once (It’s a rare thing!) and I won the shopping spree this past weekend at the crop!! Everyone bought tickets all weekend long on a shopping spree, and low and behold I won! I won 325.00 in store credit to My Stamping Studio. How exciting is that!!?? Can’t wait to spend that as all the new product starts rolling in over the next few months! Here I am with my winning tickets!


Now, onto the layout….Here is a one page layout I created using the Mildred Collection from MME. This layout showcases a picture of my Mom, my sisters and I, my aunt (mom’s sister) and my cousins all getting together to go out for supper at the dinner theatre to celebrate Mom’s 65th birthday. It was a fantastic night.


In addition to the MME papers and stickers, I used a MME crocheted flower from last year that was in my stash, a white flower from Michael’s, wooden veneer pieces also from Michael’s, buttons from my stash, and some coordinating cardstock and brown ink.

I love when ever the opportunity presents itself to do a girly layout use feminine colours, because as you might imagine, having a hubby and two sons, most of my layouts are fairly masculine. So it’s fun when I can mix it up! Thanks for looking and have a great day!
