Let him eat cake!

This was my favorite layout from the 6x6 Paper Pads Scrapinar.  (We are almost done, the last one is posting tomorrow.)  Not only do I love the strip piecing technique but this photo is just so, so cute!  My oldest stepdaughter took the photo of my youngest stepdaughter's little boy on his first birthday.  They all live far away so we weren't there.  I just filled in the speech bubble from my imagination.  It is fun trying to guess what a child might be thinking.

It says:  "Yeah, yeah, I get it.  I'm cute.  Now would you quit taking pictures so I can have my birthday cake?"

The background is Stampin' Up! now discontinued Bashful Blue and the 6x6 pads are the Pier from Crate Paper and Pinwheel from Lily Bee.  For the mat around the photo, I cut some cardstock with regular scissors in narrow cuts for fringe to match his hat.  The stars are Studio Calico mistables.

I feel slightly guilty.  I just sent Jaime (my photographer) her album with pages I've made this year from photos she sent.  I did not include this page.  It was too cute and I couldn't quite part with it yet.  I suppose that is a good reason to make another page with this adorable photo and send it to her.

Don't forget, this is the last week to purchase True Stamp classes at the discounted $7 per class:
