Happy Birthday Lesley!!!

Good day to all my bloggy friends!
Today my DT sisters & myself, have taken over the Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine blog. 
Why?...It's a Birthday celebration!!!!
Happy Birthday Lesley!!!
For my project I used the Easel Cake card file from My Scrap Chick to make my birthday card.
I wanted this special birthday card to be as sweet as Lesley so I used the colors pink & navy blue.
The pretty papers are from "Now & Then" from MME.
The birthday sentiments are both from Birthday Wishes from MCS.
I added glossy accents on the candles, pink pearls, and a die cut butterfly which I made with my 
Cricut Explore.To complete my special birthday card, I made a button out of the Pink Striped Polka Dots - Trendy Page Dots and I placed a pink pearl on the center. I then adhered my handmade button on a double bow which was made with the gorgeous Navy Blue crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM and the pretty Totally Pink Trendy Twine.

I also thought it would be nice to make her a handmade gift.
So, I made my 1st TPR Mini Album.
(Click on this link for the tutorial)
This is the front cover of my pretty mini album.
For the front & back cover I used chipboard.
All of my dies cuts were made with the Cricut Expore DS.
( I used Celebration & When I was a Kid Cartridges)
I added glossy accents on the Happy Birthday caption, pretty pink butterflies and pearls. 
On my banner I used the Totally Pink Trendy Twine for the pom poms.
 I made a gorgeous bow with the Navy Blue crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM.
(sorry the picture is a little blurry)

I also used the "Now & Then" word stickers from MME.

I used the Navy Blue Pink Striped Polka Dots - Trendy Page Dots as tabs 
and adhered them to the inside tags.

 Another page with the Tickled Pink Trendy Twine.

I used glossy accents on the cupcake cherry...

This is last page & the inside back cover of the TPR mini album.
I used foam tape to adhere the balloons for dimension.

I would love for you to please stop by the Trendy Twine blog 
to wish Lesley a Happy Birthday & see what the Amazing 
DT sisters created.

Other Supplies:
Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue*Foam Tape
