The Gifts-Layout

Hi and glad that your here with me today, were getting a bit warmer here the January thaw we call it here in PA, coming a bit late now that we are in February, just glad to get away from those negative temps for a while. The finale of the birthday party is when Dad and Son opened son's birthday gifts.

Pieces for this layout came from the November Counterfeit Challenge Kit besides some cardstock from my stash.
On the left page I used 2-black and white die cut labels from the Life's Little Occasions pack and the together came from K&Company EcoModern Die-cut cardstock pack
Added a little velum quote to the top corner of the mat. the mat was Accent Essentials at fit to page
the presents came from a cutout sheet: Oscrap Sampler. I also used glossy accents to embelish the presents a bit
The 2nd page of the layout holds most of the pics of the toys :) I definitely like to include as many pictures in a layout that I can. I have some saved back for a personal layout for us to hold on to, cause we found out through the pictures that we scored major grandparent points with the wooden train that we gave Zachary :)
 The die cuts: B is for Boy: Train @ 3" and the Dump truck @ 2.5" and from Boys will be Boys the phrase Toys @ 2"
The corner sticker came from Pebbles share & tell Party Time Boy 4 X 6 creative pad the 2 orange border pieces came fromdoodlebug Paper Frills-tangerine pack
This bottom section shows the frame and birthday gift cut out from Oscrap Sampler with glossy accents added to the gift and the scattered star stickers are from the 4 X 6 pad mentioned above
2 more close up shots of the layout
This was a fun lay out to put together and I loved the additional die cuts representing the toys but out all the photos of this day even the one here with Zach playing with the train we got him. Is the photo on the 1st page where Son and Father are looking directly at each other, Yep I think Brad will be Zach's favorite toy.
