Delighted - October Afternoon & Scrapbook Magazine UK

For the November 2013 issue of Scrapbook Magazine UK (#77) I was asked to create a layout with the theme 'to my delight'. And here's what I created:

It has become a kind of tradition that on their birthdays the kids get a birthday cake with a photo or image of their favourite character. So, when my son turned 7 we had an “Angry Bird” cake made for him and he was delighted with it!! The only disadvantage was that he didn’t want anyone to cut and eat that part of the cake!

I’ve used October Afternoon’s “Cakewalk” collection for my layout which I find so super fun and just perfect for this photo.

Supplies used: patterned paper, Micellany: October Afternoon (Cakewalk); cardstock: Bazzill Basics; alpha stickers: American Crafts Thickers; twine: The Twinery; text tape: Dymo; staples: Tim Holtz; 3D foam squares: Scrapbook Adhesives. Tools: die cutting machine: Silhouette Cameo; sewing machine: Aigger; stapler: Tiny Attacher Tim Holtz; Dymo tool; Xyron Mega Runner.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you're enjoying your weekend!!
