Case File No. 65 Challenge - Jake's 1st Birthday

Well, I think I'm getting in just under the wire on this challenge over at the
CSI - Color, Stories, Inspiration Blog!

Here are the challenge "RULES:"

Case File No. 65 is due at midnight tonight, and I just finished my layout at 11:22pm!!

As some of you know, I started scrapping late in my son's lives, so now that my youngest son Jake is 18, I guess it is about time I scrap the few photos that I can find from his FIRST BIRTHDAY!

It's about time!!

I bought these great new SURPRISE papers from my Local Scrapbook Store, Scrap-a-Doodle Doo, in Ramsey, NJ -( they are on line too!)  along with the adorable Elmo Diecut!

I then had to figure out how to use the few old and pretty dark photos that I could find from Jake's Birthday, and get them on this layout!

I used all of the colors in the SCHEME, and incorporated Mini Brads, Ribbon and Stripes for the ELEMENTS, and selected the title of one of the poems, which was "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" for the TESTIMONY.

I am very pleased with how the layout came out  - and that I was able to incorporate the elements and participate in this FUN Challenge!

I hope you like my take on CASE FILE #65!

Thanks for stopping by!
