Hubby's B-day!!


I'm kind of excited!! I finally had a chance to make a LO that was not for a design team project!! Yipee!! So.... I love the sketches over at Sassy Lil Sketches and couldn't wait to try this one out!! These are the pictures of my husband last week on his birthday!! He had his sister in town which doesn't happen very often so I included the pictures with Greg and his sister and Greg with his parents!! Teresa (his sister) brought this very delicious birthday cake all the way from Pittsburgh!! It was amazing!! The colors are not showing up really well but they fit the challenge at Frosted Designs which is asking you to use yellow, orange, turquiose, & lime green! The background paper is yellow and the design paper has the other colors (and red too!!) You still have a few more days to get entered to win the June prize package.... click HERE to check it out!!! I am also entering this in the challenge at A Crafty Little Place.... the challenge is all about dads! And since my hubby is a dad.... and there is a picture of him with his dad.... I think it works!!

Would you like to hear the story behind the wonderful papers on this LO?!! I was sooooo excited. The Imaginisce blog was doing a blog hop with Core'dinations and my name was drawn as a winner!! I couldn't believe all of the amazing goodies that showed up at my door!!! Both companies sent me a ton of stuff!! Check it out!!
Here are the goodies I used for this LO:

This is the B-Day Bash line and I love that I can do a male LO with it!! Normally birthday papers are so girly looking!! I loved the colors on this one!! The background piece is the most amazing piece of cardstock from the Gemstones pack of Core'dinations pack!! It has a beautiful pearl shine to it!! I have to confess that I normally use cheap cardstock because I didn't think it really mattered much on the LO as long as I had the right color, but I am a changed girl!! This cardstock is the best to use!!! I will certainly be buying more of this!!!
Here are close ups of each line in the prize package.....



Thank you to both Imaginisce and Core'dinations!!! I will definitely be using all of this up!! Have a great Tuesday and thank you for stopping by to visit!!!
