Creative Imaginations paper. Not sure who makes the transparent buttons or the transparent photo holder. Sakura souffle pens for the doodles. And letters are CK Newsprint from QK.

For the journaling, read here.

Two Birthday Boys

All papers and green alpha stickers are from Club Scrap 'Bugs' kit. The large alpha for 'BOYS' are stickers from Doodlebug Design Inc; brown tag stickers from Rebecca Sower Nostalgiques; "2" is Heidi Swapp chipboard. I also used Hero Arts alpha stamps and the Club Scrap bug stamp. S.e.i. rhinestone brads used to affix the smaller tags.

Celebrating the birthday for these two is always difficult. It is on the 6th of January. And everyone is still on holiday then. After a few days school starts and everything is so hectic that there is simply no time to organise a party. By the time February comes around I always feel it is too late! I think it is also Ricky's 'couldn't care less' attitude about parties which made me not worry too much about throwing them. But next year we shall have to host a party come what may because Ricky has finally requested one.

Such a good brother!

And here is a layout from my daughter's birthday party but for my son's album. Papers and round coasters are from Imagination Project. White rub-on letters and buckle from Making Memories. And the 'Remember' sticker is 'Shotz by Danelle Johnson'.

I decided to put this photograph of my DD's birthday in Ricky's album because he really was very well behaved that evening. He stayed out of the way of all the girls and came to join the party only when it was time to cut the birthday cake. To keep the focus on him, I used Picasa to keep Ricky in colour and turned everything else into B&W.
