Jenn's Birthday Party

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JENN!!!!
To celebrate Jenn's Birthday she is hosting a birthday blog hop. It will be March 4-6 so help spread the word about Jenn's birthday celebration, the more the merrier. If you hopped here from Madison Funky Cards Blog you are on the right track, but if you want to start at the beginning make sure to go to Jenn's Scrappin' Lil Turtle Blog to begin the celbration.
We were all ask to incorporate a turtle into our projects. I decided to use my Create a Critter Cartridge turtle to make my 2 page layout. I will have it ready for birthday pictures that will be coming this year from all of our birthtday celebration.
On my first page my turtle is following the birthday trail to the second page, thought it was a cute idea. LOL. I used All My Memories Birthday Boy 2, 3, and 4 papers and the Bauble Embellishments that went with the paper.
I punched out a lot of circles from my scrap All My Memories Birthday Boy Paper, I then went around each of the circle groups with a paper piercer and sewed back stitch around each group with 1 strand of dark blue embroidery floss. Notice the Happy Birthday trail looks a little distress, I did that using my Tim Holtz Distressing Tool. This page will hold a 5x7 picture that I have a white mat for. I just added some of the embellishments to the page that match the paper.
Here is my second page and it will hold two 4x6 pictures.
I want you to see a close up of the turtle and notice that on three of the circles I filled them with some of the Martha Stewart Baking Twine to give the shell some dimension and on the other three circles I filled them with Glossy Accent. Again, I used my distress tool and distressed more the Happy Birthday trail that I had cut from my paper. I used black gemstones for his mouth and eyes, a zig pen and a blue sheer bow to finish dressing up my turtles. Oh!!! Notice that I did the paper piercing around the outside edge of this page and did my stitching with the dark blue embroidery floss.
I stamped my flags with the new Hero Arts Friendly Flags, cut them out with my detail scissors, distressed the edge sand placed them on pop dots. I used the Martha Stewart Bakery Twine to make little knot strings and glued them in between each of the flag. On the last flag I made it look like it had blown off from the rest of the stream of flags. Finish off the page with some of the leftover embellishments.
Now on to the next stop on the hop which is Kristina - Your Memories Here. Enjoy the Jenn's Birthday Blog Hop.
Almost forgot, no birthday can be celebrated without some birthday presents and I am giving you a gift of these Recollection Stamps all you have to do is :
1. Become a follower
2. Leave your contact email (in case you would win)
3. Share on your facebook page if you want about Jenn's Birthday Blog Hop
