More Birthday Details and a Giveaway

Happy Thursday! I've been a bit absent again, haven't I?  I've just been busy with field trips, the Etsy shop, and life in general.  I'm dying to really get into some crafty/scrappy things this weekend, so you'll see much more from me soon :).

Today is Thursday, which means I get to share a layout inspired by this week's newest sketch at Sketchy Thursdays.  It's a fabulous double-page sketch, but I opted to use just one side for this layout:

The morning of Colten's birthday I treated him to donuts for breakfast.  Then I surprised him by sending him with two dozen glazed to share with his class.  He was a happy kid :).

Isn't this birthday line by Basic Grey fun?  I love all the woodgrain colors, pinwheels and banners.  It's a great boyish birthday line.

And speaking of Colten's birthday, several people were inquiring about the mustache party favors I made for the party.  I can finally share - my "make a wish" mustache wands are featured at the SRM blog today.

I also made a few really cute garlands out of red, yellow and white tickets, as well as punched circles.  I don't have another use for them and would love to pass them on to someone who could use them.  Are you interested?  Leave me a comment telling me that you'd like them and I'll draw a name on Monday.

Have a wonderful day! Tessa
