Birthday Boy

There is a scrapbook store in Farmington Hills called the Scrapbook Zone . We just refer to it as the "Zone" because you zone out walking up and down the aisles and aisles of papers. They have a terrific dollar area where there is all sorts of paper, pens, stickers, stamps,buttons, and odd stuff. You could buy one of each item and spend so little. It's great if you have young kids into scrapping-just give them a 5.00 and let them shop for themselves.

I found this paper there in a pack of 10 sheets for a buck. I got the blue, brown, green, red, and yellow packs. It was from Ek Success Architecture line from a few years back and its textured and really cool. I found some dark blue scraps and a few white pieces and basically that is all I did. I made layers and edged them all in denim from the Tim Holtz line. I stamped in Making Memories acrylic the words. and before I finished layering, I added the three itty bitty brads to the corner.

About 10 minutes and I was on my way. I also made a girl one but forgot to photograph it as the sun was almost behind the pines. I liked the boy one better anyways. This card recipe is pretty versatile for just about any card or occasion and another fun way to use up scraps!
