Ted turned 15th last month. We had a great day - we went bowling, walked around the mall, visited the arcade and had dinner at a new pizza place that was really quite tasty. Afterward we came home and had some cake. Once again, Kerig came through with the photos! He did a great job - I love the fact that he thought to get a snap of Molly decorating the cake.
I love the way the layout came together. Yes, it's even more Silhouette-y than usual, but it works. I'm fond of the swirly border - both the pen on the right side and the cut on the left. But it's the candles that make the happiest - they're tall and fun and I love the layers on layers in the flame. The "eat" button is from Kelly Purkey at Simon Says Stamp (as are the letter stickers for the word 'birthday") - and while I love her products and aesthetics, I do prefer the buttons from aflairforbuttons on Etsy. Kelly's button is bigger, which isn't a plus for me - real estate on an 8.5x11 page is too precious, so even that tiny little bit can make a big difference. But more than that, the bottom side of the button is concave, so adhering it is much trickier than the flat-backed variety at aflairforbuttons. It's nit picking, really, but it matters to me.
Okay, it's off to the next phase of DAY OFF TUESDAY! Thanks for stopping by! ☺
