Birthday layout

Yesterday I was organizing pictures and checking out blog challenges.  I found several I wanted to enter and I could incorporate into much needed  birthday layouts.  I have a bunch as we had one granddaughter turn 1 in November and one turn 2 in January.  One of the challenges was to use the colors red, yellow, blue and green.  So I hunted through the DCWV stack called Celebrations.  I decided I really liked the piece you see on the left. I only had one piece so I cut it in 1/2.  On the right side I punched it with a MS Happy Birthday punch. The strips on the left also had orange in it so to stick with the challenge  I cut some pieces to cover those and pop dotted them to give more dimension.  The title Look Who's 1 was cut from Cricut Alphabet on my E2 Machine. The letters at 2 inches and the number 1 at 1 inch.  The rosette was made from the Tim Holtz rosette die.  The little bingo card, H card and tickets were from the DCWV  
I used red polka dot ribbon and added giant googly eyes to the oo's in look to match my granddaughters owl hat.  (Her birthday was an owl theme-Guess who's one?)

Celebrate the Occasion -Polka Dot (on ribbon, blue background paper and paper strips)
Shes a Sassy Lady- Birthday Card or layout
Exploring Cricut - red, blue, green, yellow and white
