Hi Friends and Fellow Crafters! I'm back again with a new challenge. This is for the Circle Blog's Monthly Challenge. We were challenged to scrap a milestone in our lives. I decided to go back 20 years and scrapbook some favorite pictures from my son's 1st birthday. How I wish I was into paper crafting back then! Scrapbook pages are really out of my comfort zone. Lucky for me, I have many, many Northridge Publishing Cricut magazines to fall back on. LOL! This is inspired by Lynn Ghahary's Birthday Bash layout in the Cricut Birthday's Book. It's on page 16 of the magazine.

Here are the details:
Cricut Expression 2

Birthday Bash
Art Philosophy

CTMH: Dotty For You
DCWV: Glitter Paper
We R Memory Keepers: Hippity Hoppity

Other Good Stuff
Viva Decor Pearl Pen: Anthracite
Pop Dots

Birthday Bash has the cutest cuts. I used the Squirrel, Dog and Juggling Beaver for the layout. I used Art Philosophy for the banner and stars. It was a sweet layout that came together nicely.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Happy Crafting!
