Birthday Boy -- Mini Monograms

This is the 2nd Challenge Week for Celebrate The Occasion!!  The requirement for this week was 'Masculine Birthday'...  Please hop on over to Celebrate The Occasion to check out all the wonderful projects created by the Design Team and challenge participants -- Maybe you'll even want to give the next challenge a try!!  :)
Since The-Girl-Child is finishing up her Senior Year, I haven't been focusing on too many 'masculine' pages lately (yeah, The-Boy-Child's pictures are just stackin' up!!!)...  This challenge forced me to pull out the boy colors and get creating!!  :)

The paper for my 12x12 layout is from the Creative Memories Discover Power Palette...  I love the distressed look of this paper, and I am sad to see that it is leaving the line -- But I am super excited about the NEW Rugged Power Palette that will be replacing it on March 1st!!  If you do not have a Creative Memories consultant and would like to order any of the CM products (including the Discover Power Palette line while supplies last), you can have them direct shipped (anywhere in the U.S.) by clicking and shopping HERE...
 The title "Birthday Boy" was created with the DOTS feature (+shift) on the Cricut Cartridge Mini Monograms...  This cartridge is one of those 'under-used' ones I own.  This is also one of the ones I just 'HAD' to have after the BFF showed me how AWESOME it is!!  :)  Anyway, I am a very keyboard oriented person, so when I realized that the keypad is laid out alphabetically (instead of QWERTY), boy, was I confused!!  LOL...  It has some GREAT mix-and-match letters as well as this fabulous font that I think was created just to go with this paper!!  :)
I have a lovely 5x7 photograph that I plan to use on this page, so the photo mats are sized at 5.5"x7.5" for the brown and 6"x8" for the blue...  Since I'm all about the texture, I used my crimper for some added pizazz.  The dotted ribbon is again from the Discover Power Palette and is layered on a 3/4" strip of brown crimped cardstock and 1" cranberry crimped cardstock...  Two Discover buttons tied with raffia and some chocolate brown distressing ink top it all off for a quick and simple layout... 
Remember, there is a BRAND NEW Creative Memories Cricut Cartridge, Stork's Delivery, coming March 1st!!  To be added to my 'waiting list' for this cartridge, please email me -- scrapbookingwithamy (at) gmail (dot) com...  When you pre-pay for this cartridge with me, you are automatically entered into a drawing to receive another cartridge for FREE!!  If you are interested in seeing the available Creative Memories Cricut Cartridges, please click HERE...
