Huge Family Birthday Party Layouts

Good Morning :) Glad to see Friday has arrived, I always look forward to the weekend cause I get most of my crafting done then and Looking forward to this weekend to get this 1st Year Album done, whew it's been a big project one I have never tackled before. The 1st birthday actually got celebrated over 3 days-The small family party, The huge Family party, and the Gift opening. Today I have the Huge Family Party. This was put together with both the Jan 2014 and Nov 2013 Counterfeit kits-trying to kill the kits :)
 This is page 1, I started with the white card stock and the blue stripe paper cut at fit to page with the Elegant Edges cart-Hearts 2 @ shift. Added the Family cutout, Birthday-cut from Artbooking I think @ 3" real dial size . Party and the cluster on the top left is from a sticker sheet from the Nov. Kit. The 1 is from the Bryce & Madeline sticker sheet
 Added the photo of the cake with photo mat-hearts2 oblong @ 6". Added your big day from an old Mary Engelbert's sheet and the balloon stickers attached with twine from CTMH finished off the sticker sheet by placing the stars in various spots around the picture and on the 1 sticker added stickles too the 1 also.
 Couple more shots of the layout
Page 2:
 Is the page that holds the most photos and a spot for the journaling block
 The variety of photo mats were cut from the Elegant Edges cart- Hearts2 oblong @ 5". The birthday boy cut was fro that same Mary E. sheet. I used Making Memories Jewel paper ribbon (Nov Kit) for a border and the star border is from a cutout sheet: Oscrap Sampler.
 Family moments is from Life's Little Occasion's Pack (Nov kit)
 Make a wish is from a cutout sheet: Oscrap Sampler.
The Polaroid frame came from Heidi Swapp: Memory File Color InstaFrames. I was glad to get this fun shot of Zach eating his cake. Zach was really having a bad day, it was a bit hot and just to many people for him to meet with I think. The party ended a bit early for that because he wasn't feeling quite good. That is why there is another layout with opening the gifts and there wasn't enough room to fit that in yet. Thanks for stopping by today-the gift layout will be posted tomorrow, chat then.
 From the Jan Kit: Birthday Cutout-blue cardstock, White background cardstock, blue stripe paper, confetti photo mats, Journaling block.
From the Nov Kit: Left page upper corner block came from letter stickers, Creative Memories Border tape, Family Moment cutout.
From my stash: Brown cardstock-photomats, The birthday stickers & star border, 1 sticker, your big day sticker, the photo frame
Kit Items made this month: 3 cards and 8 layouts (It was a good month :)
