Happy Birthday barn card

For Wee Memories Challenge #59 which is Anything Goes!

I made this for our cutie pie friend Charlie's 1st birthday which was a farm animal-themed party:
 My first banner:

 The inside:
That Create a Critter cartridge got a workout on this card!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY baby Charlie!!!!!!
Too bad I didn't think of photographing the cute matching envelope : (

Have a cool day!

My entry for Unity's SUMMER Challenge Sun and Sand
and Wee Memories Challenge #59 Anything Goes

 The glasses are from the April kit of the month and the sentiment is 2 stamps from the Mix-up of Cuteness set.
 I sanded kraft cardstock with my sanding block to try to get a sand texture. It didn't turn out quite as I wanted, but close enough. And I used my chalks on the water and sun.

My boys...a layout

A layout! I feel like I haven't made a layout in so long. I guess probably because I haven't!

This is for Off The Wall Craftiness Challenge #55 which is to use this as the color inspiration:

And Stamptacular Sunday Challenge 115 to make something for Dads or grads and to stamp.

And All Things Unity #33 which is to make something manly.

I chose to scrap this photo of the boys with their dad. I think it just shows how much they love him!
I did add a little blue to the colors I chose as I just felt it needed it (sorry Kim, I won't feel bad if you disqualify me!). I just got these cute little book plates and I couldn't wait to use the. Here I framed the photo with it. I love metal embellishments!

 A rubon on a tag with some twine. Mmmm, love twine!

My stamps are from Unity's current kit of the month "Think happy Thoughts". I stamped and fussy cut those flowers. I don't know why people think you can't put flowers on a "boy" project.

 Not sure I'm digging this title. It came with the stamp set so I tried it. But I think I want something more to do with "Dad" rather than "Family".  I'll have to stare at it for awhile.

If only the baby was in the photo too!
