Birthdays in August!!!

A match  made in heaven....I have SO many birthdays in August when Tracy asked me to  have a play with the new Kaiser Save the Date papers - I cheered !!!!  I have my sister, my Mum, my son and my niece and an Aunt!!!!    Yeah I know - my  credit card hates  this  time of year!!!!

And this year my Mum turned 70 and my  son turned 13 so significant birthdays to be celebrated!!!!

I love the colours in these papers - seriously  they are fabulous  versatile papers - I have used them for my son and my Mum and they suit both !!  So today I will start with my sons layout......

I love white cardstock backgrounds but I cant help myself - I usually  have to mist them or ink them !!!  This one was  glimmer misted with fabulous green glimmer mist -  Tracy has the BEST  prices for mist - I promise!!!

I then cut the Milestone paper and drew around the outside edges  and adhered it to the left side of the cardstock.

  I loved the Cheers  paper and the different  bits you could  cut from it - I  used the large scallop for Lachlans  birthday layout.  I have also handcut the "time to celebrate"  scallop journal box.

I then cut some of the pinwheels from the Cheers paper and using brads I created some little pinwheels.

I also handcut some of the balloons from the Streamers and raised these up on popdots. 

One of the many things I LOVE  about Tracys store is that there are always   fabulous embellishments to add something  unique  to your layout.   In this case  I have added the  funky little Happy Birthday pins and a gorgeous  wooden button - I added some red twine and  a  cool  little ice cream charm .  To balance the red twine  on the button - I also  glued some loopy twine at the top of the layout  . 

I love using the bonus strips of paper  you get with Kaiser papers now and I have used these on this layout  for added texture   with my pinwheels!!!
And here is the finished product!!!

I will be back later  with another birthday layout  featuring my Mummy!!!!!  In the meantime check out the fabulous range of papers HERE!!!!

Ah, I'd forgotten about your blog! And how awesome your layouts are! Might just inspire me to finish my Europe mini-book, if I can find time!
