Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop September 2011

Welcome to the September 2011 Taylored Expressions Blog Hop!  This month's theme is Birthday/Birth day, and I want to start off by offering my congratulations to Taylor and Jon!  Madelyn Grace is just adorable, and I am glad to hear that everyone is doing so well.  Enjoy these precious moments, kids grow up so fast!

I have two cards for you today--the first one is a Birthday theme, and I based it on Sankari's sketch:

I ended up not using some of the pieces, they just didn't seem to fit the card.  I did have way too much fun playing with my Embellie Jellie though, adding those rhinestones to the pennant!
