Whimsical Wednesday Scrapbook Challenge

Welcome back for another Scrapbook Whimsical Wednesday.

The challenge this week is to make a
Birthday layout with some kind of embossing.
I have made a 2 page 8.5 x 11 layout.

(Here is my 1st page. )
All images on this 2 page LO where cut from the Cricut "Birthday Bash" cartridge. I heat embossed the polka dots on the banner with clear embossing powder and added bakers twine in Lemondrop from The Twinery. The 3 was embossed with my Cuttle bug and the Swiss Dots CB folder.

(Here is the 2nd page.)
The octopus' face was stamped with Peachy Keens Retro Paper Doll face assortment. (This face is one of my favorites. I love how excited he looks!) I used the Swiss Dots folder again to emboss the balloons and used The Twinery's bakers twine to do the strings. All papers except for the kraft came from DCWV Celebration Stack and the red polka dot ribbon came from Stampin' Up.

Here are both pages together.

Please stop on over at the Whimsical Wednesday Blog to see what the talented design team has come up with for your inspiration and for all the details about the challenge. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day! :)
