Happy Birthday Cool Dude layout (for BBTB2)

Happy Monday!  Yesterday was full of gray skies and violent thunderstorms with the weather radio sounding alerts all day, so I'm looking forward to a little sunshine today!  I am extremely grateful that the tornadoes that hit parts of the midwest did not hit in our area.  The sky looked scary, so I was uneasy all day Sunday.  So I'm really glad it's Monday!!!

Our BBTB2 challenge this week is to use a cricut birthday cake on a project, so I have a birthday layout for you.  I've got a couple of birthdays needing to get in the scrapbook, so this was a great challenge for me!  I used two cartridges, Boys Will Be Boys for the title and Birthday Bash for the cake.  The print papers are from the Echo Park Scoot collection.

Boys Will Be Boys-title cut at 3 1/2 inches
Birthday Bash-cake cut at 4 1/2 inches
Paper-Echo Park Scoot collection print papers/stickers, CTMH solids
brown chalk ink

Go check out all the DT birthday cake projects at BBTB2 and link up with a project-perfect chance to get that birthday card you'll need soon made or get some b-day party pics scrapbooked!
