Happy Birthday Liam

My son Liam just celebrated his 5th birthday this Sunday... how fast the time goes! He wanted a baseball theme party, so I did a generic theme but since we live in New England, I used red and blue as the colors for Yankees vs. Red Sox.

I used my Cricut to make this birthday banner - I was also inspired by this challenge at The Paper Variety, to create a paper project that's not a layout or a card. I know this picture is kinda hard to see, but the white background is actually baseballs.

Chris manned the grill and made hamburgers, hot dogs and brats and the rest of the food was set up on this table. In baseball theme, we had popcorn and peanuts and bags of chips. The big winner though was the big jug of fresh strawberry lemonade - the kids all lined up and took turns pouring their drinks and got back to the end of the line. I'll share the recipe in a later post.

These were Liam's cupcakes - he loved them! I didn't go too crazy this year, just basic white cake mix and white frosting, with red gel to look like baseballs.

And of course, the birthday boy himself, with his very first 5 dollar bill!!

Basic Grey Sketch

I created this page using this sketch found on Basic Grey's blog. I loved these pictures and was inpsired to do this layout. The journalling reads: "Collin, you had so much fun this day at the Rygiel Lake House. Just sitting on the blanket listening to the water and the boats. July 4, 2011."
