For my Birthday Celebration project I used these awesome birthday SVG files from Kadoodle Bug Designs:
Happy Birthday Cat - cupcake

I wanted to document my daughter's 8 year old birthday in a pocket page/ Project Life style - so this was the perfect opportunity! She requested breakfast in bed, which was served as a smiley faced waffle, and got to open her presents in her jammies. She spend a morning playing and crafting before getting ready for the big party (more on that to come in the next few weeks!)

I absolutely love this cute little birthday girl diecut!! I edged with Distress Ink to add some shadows and added some coloured pencil rosy cheeks. This makes me think of my wonderful Nanny when she used to make us paper dolls!

The background of this journalling card is one from the Project Life app that I printed along with my photos. I thought it was perfect for layering my cupcake - taken from the Happy Birthday Cat diecut! The Celebrate is also a partial PL journalling card cut and layered.

I used the My Mind's Eye - My Girl paper pack and other scraps in my stash for diecutting and the Fabulous Girl Recollections paper pack from Michael's - which is the same as one of the Simple Stories paper packs! I really like cutting patterned paper for some of my diecuts - love the effect :)
