Hayden is Eight! Birthday Layout

Hi Everybody!,

We just had my youngest son's birthday party last Friday - a "SpongeBob-Let's-Go-to-see-Gnomio-&-Juliette-Movie birthday!"  Just 5 of his buddies and my 2 other sons each brought a friend and my husband and I both drove them all (in the pouring rain! LOL!) to the movies and back here for a little pizza and SpongeBob cake!  He loved it!  Friday afternoon is a great time for a birthday party since there aren't many sports practices or other planned activities like there are on the weekends.

I used Core'dinations background paper, and Basic Grey Nook and Pantry Cupcakes patterned paper.  The brown and orange papers are from Bazzill.

Happy Happy Birthday is made from the Birthday Bash and comes with the flag. Martha Stewart Elegant Cakes has the scalloped rectangle which was cut at 8 inches.

SpongeBob has their own Cricut cartridge and I must admit, it is very time consuming to put together!  There's a solid piece (black) and then 3 layers and Shift plus 1-2 more layers.  OMG! - I only had patience enough to make 2 little Sponge's!

I had to add a little black Sakura Gelly Roll stitching!

Even the inside of the holes are cut out!  I do like the overall look since it keeps the black outline just like a cartoon - very cool designing!  (although I thought I goofed up the layers the first time I put it together since there was all this extra space I wasn't used to!)

I guess I am getting crazy for stitching ribbon to my layouts & cards - I certainly cannot sew anything else! ;~)

These are some old letter stickers I placed on top of the circle border found in the Give a Hoot cartridge. I welded 2 sets together to have it string across the page.
 The best site I've found for looking stuff up is which you can access from my blog on the left column.  I just typed in "circle border", scalloped rectangle" and "Happy Birthday" and up pops all the examples they have - it's great!

Have a great day!
- Lisa  :~)
