Ok let me start by first saying I don't do well with layouts. I used to do them back in the 90's when all we had was some Mrs Grossman stickers and tiny paper punches. I really didn't have much in supplies then. I put all that away and just picked it back up not quite 2 years ago. I have only done 6 layouts since then and this is the 6th one. After being away from it for so long I could not believe the product that was out there for scrapbooking. Now when I look at all the beautiful scrapbooking layouts I feel intimidated. I have a long way to go before mine will look that good. It is a slow process for me because I like making cards more. I used to make cards back in the 90's also but had a lot more supplies for that. This is just a simple layout. I used the tear bear I made earlier and I used sweet treats cart to make the party hat for him and the number 8. I am always open for advice to improve. Comments are welcome.
