Pages with Papertrey

TGIF!!! This week has been super busy at work and home. Lucky for me, I had almost 40 hours before I went in to work today. That meant I would get to go home as soon our patient load would allow. So as soon as I got home, I quickly went to work on this layout. All week, I would find a bit of time to work on it. I just had to create the title and figure out where to put my few embellishments since most of the page consists of photos. The page plays along with Pages with Papertrey challenge #21: include birthday photos in your layout and use 1 PTI stamp and sketch #21.
This page represents just a few of the photos taken for my son's first birthday party. To see more photos from this day, you can visit my sister's blog and this post. There was a glitch with her blog so some photos are missing, but you will still be able to appreciate all of the events.
I have been using Becky Higgins Sweet Baby kit for his baby album. But sadly, the only thing from the kit on this page is the 12x12 patterned paper. The rest of the elements are from PTI: Boy Basics: Rock On, Star Prints, Block Alphabet die and Pretty Peonies Happy die. This layout can also play along with challenge #11 which is to include an element on your page other than a photo. As you tell by the birthday hat photo, I saved the guitar/star embellishment and added it to the page.

On Sunday, we will be joining my sister and her family to celebrate my niece's birthday. She is turning 6. And I am happy to report that my little Leah has finally cut one of her top teeth. Pretty soon her toothless grin will be no more. I will be sad to see it go. They grow up way to fast. Also on Sunday, Leah and I are participating in the DeNami blog hop, so be sure to stop by and see what we have created.
Have a great weekend!
