Happy 5th Birthday

I have been thinking about this layout for almost 2 years now, and just didn't get it done.  Of course it helps that I finally got the Boys will be Boys Cricut Cartridge recently.  The papers are from The Paper Studio Boys and their Toys stack.  Great prints, but I did find the paper to be very thin, so  I  mounted the entire layout on white cardstock.   

Here is a close up of the left side

The big tire that I used for the title is from Boys will be boys, and the font is from base camp.  I used my gypsy and welded the letters to the tire and then used the negative space for the lettering. The trucks are also from Boys will be boys.   There is a cake brad in the bed of the blue truck and 3balloon brads in the bed of the green truck.

Here is a close up of the right side

This green truck has button presents falling out of it and a party hat brad in the bed too.  The pocket I made on my gypsy with a square and a triangle.  I keep all the invitations and cards from birthday parties, and I figured this would be a great place to keep them all. 

So there it is, a layout and  blog update! Go me! LOL Thanks for looking!


  1. Saw this at the Circle and wanted to let you know how great I think it is. Super fun.

  2. Love your title treatment with the gear!
