"May" calendar page.

Here is my May calendar page. I know, it doesn't officially say "May" on it...but this is my daughter's birthday month so I thought I'd make a special page for her. With that being said here are the details. The photo sizes are 5x3 and 3x3. The pattern papers are BasicGrey "cupcake". The cardstock is a variety of Bazzill, DCWV, and Stampin' Up. The only thing I cut with my Cricut were the triangles for the banner. I used the "sweet treats" cartridge on page 44 of the handbook, it is the party hat cut! I just cut enough of those to spell out happy birthday and for some added interest I made stitched lines with my white pen. The alpha stamp is "doodle alphabet" by Close To My Heart. The "pleated paper" technique I got from Megan...thanks Megan!! The distressed flower I made, THANKS to Christina for the GREAT tutorial, using my SU scallop circle punch. I punched five scallops from a piece of pattern paper, crumpled them up, poked a hole in the middle, and put them onto a medium sized brad. I fussed with the scallops a little bit and adhered it to the page. I like how this one turned out. Thank you for visiting.
