The Birthday Boy:

Our youngest [atm!!] Grand Boy turned one in February.
This one's for him!
Ollie loves his food. So I figured it was 'right' to capture him
eating these birthday treats:)
I have had this sheet of Little Yellow Bicycle pp since I STARTED SCRAPPING!!!
Loved the animals along the bottom. So, I added the parcel [acrylic from Scraptastic]
& flair [Freckled Fawn, I think?? Very Old, too!].
The elephant above was cut from Kaisercraft patterned paper with my Brother
Scan'N'Cut machine. That made it easy!
I also created a stencil with my machine, then used Stampin' Up ink
through it to create those background triangles. Some I outlined to make pop a bit.
And the arrow and wood sun are Cocoa Vanilla
 It makes me feel GOOOOD to mix old stuff with new! 
 There are a pile of rub ons all over the show. A win from ARCHISCRAPS
challenge.....they are October Afternoon & the BEST I've used in ages. They
went on soooo easily:)
 Decided the plain wood camera from Happy Scatters needed some 'extras'.
So, added the rub on 'life', the enamel dot, the flair from APOCD [no longer around,
sadly ;(] & the 'happy' is Cocoa Vanilla. Oh! And that tab is Studio Fourteen 40. YUM!
The camera is strategically placed to cover a little
girl who was taking the focus of the photo off Ollie!!
 More rub ons to the right of the photo of Ollie scoffing his cake!
And the little giraffe is a die cut from Provo Craft. I was lucky to
see a local scrapper was 'destashing' and it came in a little animal set,
which I really, really love:)
Lastly a closie of all those rub ons. That was FUN!!!
Bet you've got some of them lurking in the darkness of your stash.....
g'arn! Get 'em out....USE 'em!!!!!
Cheers for now, Lizzy ♥♥♥
