Elmo 2nd Birthday Layout

This is a layout of my grandson Jeff's second birthday! He had an Elmo party, which was his favorite at that time. I am entering it into two challenges, Once Upon a Sketch and Whimsical Wednesday.




For Once Upon A Sketch you were to use this sketch:

For Whimsical Wednesday this week the challenge is to create a Birthday LO and include some type of embossing. I used embossed background paper although it is a little hard to see in the pictures.

Supplies used: cardstock - embossed white, yellow, red; patterned paper - Elmo from Sesame Street by EK Success, Play Nice from My Little monsters by Daisy Bucket, Silly Stripes; star punch - EK Success; Life's A Party Cricut cartridge (Happy Birthday cut at 2" and the number two cut at 4"); buttons, floss, journal square - my stash; pop dots; font - 2Peas Quirky.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!!

No, I agree with Kim...something I suppose simple could be taken wrong but obviously NOT this time! LOL! This is great and I love the bold paper choices, the journaling block and most importantly...those photos!!!!
My littlest turns 2 next month!!!! We should get them together to watch Elmo! LOL!
Have a good one and thanks so much for putting this in @ Whimsical Wed!!!
