Celebrating Another Birthday!

This time at Apron Strings - now six years old! Lori is having challenges and giving out birthday presents! I got my scrap on and completed four layouts!
On Day 1 the challenge was to use ribbon, maybe in a way that's new for you - pleat it, create a frame, layered, woven, whatever. I pleated some bright green ribbon on this LO!

On Day 2 the challenge was to use a sketch - I used this sketch to create a layout about carving our pumpkin!

On Day 3 the challenge was to make your journaling more than an afterthought. Showcase it in a way that is different for you. I actually did not put any journaling which is highly unusual for me - I enjoy telling the story, writing down something funny that happened, all the details. On this layout about trunk or treating at church there just wasn't much to say so I only put the title and the date. (Sorry about the cruddy pic - not sure why!)

And on Day 4 we had to "bake" your layout based on the cake choices (secret ingredients) we had chosen on day 3. My choices were: Cake base: Yellow - Yellow or Cream cardstock, Filling: Boston Cream - patterned paper with plaid, Icing: Chocolate - Ribbon, Topping: Icing Lettering - Rub-on Alphabet.
