These pics are from last year around my birthday, we were driving home from a conference in NC and decided to make a pitstop in Savannah, GA to grab dinner and stretch our legs. We ended up having dinner on the second story balcony of the coolest place... upscale seafood restaurant upstairs/bar, club, live band downstairs. DH and I shared the biggest platter of steamed oysters, crablegs, crawfish, shrimp, clams, and probably some other stuff I am forgetting. Hailey tried fried shrimp for the first time and LOVED them! As we were finishing dinner, fireworks started and we had the best view! Then we decided to stroll along the boardwalk/downtown area and listen to the best sax player. Anyways it was a nice early birthday dinner for me!

PP: CTMH Road Trip Level 2 Paper Pack
Dimensional Elements: CTMH Fresh Shapes (the arrow and the solid stars), the speckled stars I stamped using CTMH "Star Struck" onto some left over chipboard from another alphabet pack then just hand cut them.
Font: Quickutz Lowercase Sophie... I really want the uppercase to go with this one! I think this is the only font that I don't have the entire set!
This layout was so much fun to make, okay it was a bit of work too! All the stiped paper is hand cut, adhered, and placed to match the stripes of my dd's shirt...I know a little obsessive! But, I couldn't find paper that fit the layout just right, so I made my own. I then used my sewing machine to sew along the edge to make sure all those strips wouldn't go anywhere after all my hard work!
Here is a little closeup of the layout I finished last night (actually waiting on an enlargement for that top picture.) You can see the entire layout over there --> Its the one of Hailey meeting "Abigail" her CPK doll a couple Cmas' ago. Thanks Uncle Mattie, Hailey still loves this doll years later. But I think we all remember our first CPK doll, I do! This layout was a bit of a challenge to use the yellow base. But it was fun! The flowers are one of the Quickutz Revolution daisies that I foled the petals around a paint brush to round them back and give them some dimension and a little different shape. Whatd'ya think?
