Birthdays are hard to scrap, in my opinion: the kids are all over the place and hard to take a picture of. For DS8's birthay layout, I chose to focus on the cake because of that, and then the food theme was given for DS11's birthday layout too (there are only five days between their birthdays).
The Cosmo Cricket "Circa 1934" which came with MyScrapbooknook's November kit, was once again perfect for boy's layouts. OMG, that line can be used for so many purposes! The inspiration for the design of this layout was Creative Scrappers' Sketch #129.
