Birthday boy - some more double layouts!

Last week was Tom's 5th birthday...and as well as making some new birthday pages I've been looking back at some old ones...
I love these photos of Tom earlier this year at my 40th birthday party. He's suddenly turned into such a cool dude and he had a fab time dancing to 'Five colours in her hair' by McFly - his favourite song of all time! ....and I had a fab time making this page! It's a million miles away from the girly pink pages of the girls or even the slightly more softly softly pages of him when he was smaller. I probably ought to go shopping for some more supplies!!!!

'Air Guitar'
Supplies: Paper and Cardstock - Bazzill bling, My Minds Eye, Fancy Pants, Creative Memories; Stickers - American Crafts, Creative Memories; Sizzix dies - Phrase Boys Rock, Stars w/swirls

And I can't believe this layout is now two years old! I took these photos on Tom's 3rd birthday. I had just been reading Cathy Zielske's 'Clean and Simple Scrapbooking' when I made this and was really inspired by her this is my take on it!
The journaling reads:
Tom loves his new bike…he loves the bell…he loves the ‘treasure box’ at the back…but at the moment, actually cycling is just “too hard”!
The photographic ‘evidence’ to the contrary is deceptive – he may look as though he is cycling along the pavement but actually he is stationary (far easier to get the shot in focus though!).
Instead “me look daisies”. Tom enjoyed taking his bike for a walk and collecting dandelions for his treasure box.

'Tom's new bike'
Supplies: Paper and Cardstock - Basic Grey; Stickers - Basic Grey; Embellishments - Basic Grey; Sizzix dies - Baby Says Yeah alphabet


  1. Wonderful pages! I love the border on the Boys Rock page.

  2. Well done on getting the DLOs to fit (I've popped over from BFS) - I love that star border, and actually own the die - must give it an airing!
