Birthday at Happy Joe's.

My son Aaron turned 15yrs old last summer (2008) and we were lucky enough to be on vacation in Dubuque Iowa. We all got together at Happy Joe's Pizzeria to celebrate his birthday and when we were all done with our pizza the weitress came over with a big horn and yelled out really loud "We have a birthday boy over here!"..LOL
There are 15 balloons for his 15th birthday..
The expression on his face is priceless.. as the waitress was singing to him he kept saying "Oh my god!" "Oh my god!"..repeatedly.. It was the funniest thing..
I attempted to make the sunday from the "A Child Year" cartridge, I think it came out ok..Lots of stickle and added some white liquid pearl.. the more I look at it, it looks like I made it backwards.. LOL
This is just the close up of the title.. I did't want to use any more red, yellow or blue.. I thought they started over domineering the layout, so I chose Green.. Im not sure how I feel about it yet..LOL
This is the cutest little birthday hat.. cut from the child year cartridge as well..

supplies used:
  • Cricut cart: A Childs Year: Balloons, Sundae, Title, "Happy Birthday", Hat
  • Cricut cart: Graphically speaking: thinking bubble, pointing fingers (LOL) and circle arrow.
  • Papers: K & Co Kazoo kids
