Hello Friends,

This is Edna from Create With Expression today  I will be sharing with you all a two page scrapbook layout that I created with Birthday Bash and George Basic Shapes, my inspiration for this is my Grandson and getting ready for his first birthday even if it's not until November lol!!!  All my papers are from Core-dination, JoAnne Open Stock, DCWV Glitter. Some of my other tools I used are Glossy Accents, Stickles, Black Brads, Gelly Roll pens in Black and White, and also My Pink Stampers Sweet Baby set for the (Happy) around the page.

My Base is Two 12 X 12 sheets of DCWV then One sheet of JoAnne Open cardstock pattern paper, my cuts are the following from Birthday Bash--- Font at 1 1/4 inches, Banner at 2.5 inches with the Shadow and regular , Packages at 6 1/4 inches, Squrrial at 4 inches, Dance Dog at 4 inches, Ballons at 3 1/4 inches cut 3 times, Birthday cake at 10.50 inches. From George and Basic Shapes I cut One Photo mat at 4.5 inches and then again at 4 inches for the inside layer, then I cut two at 3 1/4 inches and two at 3 inches for the inside layer, then Platin Schoolbook I used for the Zig Zag at Fit To Page (about 11 1/2 inches) 
Wow! that was alot lol! and I just added the brads to the Banner and then a touch of Stikles here and there with the Glossy Accents, I am very excited about the turnout and hope that you all are inspired and excited with me :) again I want to thank Monique and Wendy for inviting me as a Guest Designer today and you are ALL AWEWSOME !!!!!

Create Hugs
Edna

Just so super duper stinking cute LO. Your grandson is going to love it! When I first received my expression, I made cards for everyone for the whole year: including birthdays, holidays, anniversary, sympathy cards, etc. It was nice to be able to pull the completed cards when needed. It also helped me to learn how to use the expression. TFS this wonderful project! Sandra Joy
