Yes, at our house we celebrate our dogs' birthdays! We have two labs from the same litter that were born in March. Usually, we make our girls, Marley & Pepper, wear birthday hats -- but they didn't want to cooperate this time!! I did manage to snap a photo though and wanted to use this week's Inspiration Challenge at Stampin' Celebration and the National Scrapbook Day Sketch from Let's Scrap for my layout!
Here's my scrapbook page:
I was excited to use my new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch from Stampin' Up! - and thought it would make a cute top to the party hat! So many possibilities with this new punch!!
Here's a closeup of the party hat. I used the Big Shot's Petal Cone Die for the hat, embossed it, added the pompom trim (oh, how I hope this comes back in July), the #4 from the Alphabet Simple Die and the Triple Layer Punch and Glimmer Brad for the top.
