Remember this old CTMH paper pack, "Birthday Bash"? Last week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge entailed creating a card, layout etc. centered around a child's birthday. I immediately thought of this paper pack I purchased ages ago and never used. The colors went right along with my son's Construction Birthday Party, so I was inspired to finally create a birthday layout for him.
I wanted to add a dump truck on the first page, but didn't have any stickease, cricut cartridges or anything simple to use that had a dump truck. I was tempted to just put a picture of his birthday cake in the corner (see picture here), but was up for a challenge, so decided to try to make one myself. I was very pleased with how it turned out. I found a simple line drawing of dump truck at http://www.crayola.com/ and simply paper pieced it together. I also used some simple stickease stickers to add some more dimension on the wheels and cut small strips to add to the truck. Not too shabby!
Glad to have used one more paper pack in my stash! I am on the road to recovery. No longer am I a "hoarder", but a "user" of my supplies! Thanks Heart 2 Heart for giving me the inspiration....even though I am a week late. ;o)
