Hello everyone!!!
 This summer has been so hot we neglected a lot of yard work because we did not want to deal with the weather. Yesterday, I went around the house checking the grass and plants and our yard is a disaster. Hopefully, the weather gets better as we move into autumn and we can start getting things in order.
Later on I was looking at some photos for my son's marching band book and I saying to myself it is a shame I do not scrapbook more often. So I got all enthusiastic for a moment and made this layout. :)

Hoo's Having a Birthday
12 by 12 inch layout
using the
Hoot 'N Holler Lite 
Cricut Cartridge

 The base cardstock is The Green Stack from DCWV and the rest is from American Crafts.
The phrase was cut at 5.14" H x 8.96" W  and the party hat was tweaked a bit with the Gypsy. Finally, I decided to cut it at 3.5" high and 1.95" wide. I used the white pen for the doodling, some stickles, popped-up the hat and added a K&CO border to the photo mat.
Having such a beautiful paper as the base it was not much more I needed to do.
I hope you like it too.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
