Hello everybody I hope you guys are having a great weekend, before I leave with my son to eat a delicious lunch to a restaurant because I don't cook on sundays,  yeah!!!! I decided to post the Birthday Layout that I did for whimsical challenge, we need to create a Birthday layout with some embossing and I have some pictures of my sister's birthday so this lo will be great for her!

I hope you guys like it!


My pattern paper 12x12 is A little Bird's tale/paisley from Heidi Grace Designs
I used embossing paper from DCWV Nanna's Kids stack
Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge
I used gypsy wanderings for my frame
Journal Clear Stamp from My Creative Time with Emma
Cuttlebug embossing folders (sorry I don't have the names)
The twine that I used for the ballon is from Joann's Stores

Thank you for stopping by!
