Birthday layouts...

This past week my parents were in town visiting me. While they were here, we celebrated 2 birthdays: my Dad's, which was July 20th, and mine, which was last Wednesday. I decided to make a layout for each us that showed us blowing out our candles, and put the pages side-by-side in an album.

For the first layout, I dug into my scraps bin to play along with
Amy Heller's summer scraps challenge:

For the layout about my Dad, I used the "Boogie Board" add-on kit from the August Studio Calico kit:

(My Dad loves making silly faces, which is why he looks a little funny in both of his pictures...haha!)

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Sunday!
