Hi CE friends! Nicolle here again today sharing a birthday layout I created. My son turned 21 on August 12th… He can legally drink now. My sister bought ingredients for a special drink for his Birthday…. Hennessey was his choice of liquor…. bleh . Strong…. glad we made it a mixed drink but still went down strooooong. It was a fun party!! Pictured is my son with my sis.


I stamped a few images to the background paper with our rubber stamps. I used Th distress inks and stamped our distressed brick and twinkle images.  I applied TH tarnished brass paint to the steampunk clock and fun polaroid frame. The gear frame was altered with TH black soot and gold lumiere paints as well as the 3/4″ gears. The title birthday boy was altered with chipped sapphire and tarnished brass paints. I wish I had a bit more time to add more texture and dimension. The balloons were altered using the same paints I used for the titles pieces and throughout to stay within the color scheme.



Awww what a sweet photo!! Yummy layers!!
