In a Birthday Mix!

It has been one of those days. Victor and I are installing laminate wood flooring in our house - we did fairly well considering we had only you tube videos for instruction. We started on Thursday - Amory came home from school sick that day and Priscilla had been sick for a few days. So the hubs and I are now certified nurses/carpenters! Because our furniture had to be cleared out I had to climb over a sofa, across my sewing table, and I am now perched gingerly on the corner of our coffee table with the leaning tower of Amory's art desk and supplies behind me.
To top it all all off, after the crawl blogger told me it wasn't responding. Really? After all of that you will respond!
So now here I am with what I hope is an inspiring blog post!
(Keep in mind my brain and body are like buttered toast currently)
I want to share a little about mixing old with new. For this first layout I combined some older My Mind's Eye with new Echo Park Happy Days. The colors went so well together and the chevron shape is so trendy!
60 or Something
From the store I used -
With scraps from the above layout I created cards for my father in law and his brother. I added older October Afternoon to this and used more 12x12 Happy Days elements Stickers. I typed up my sentiment on the computer and cut it out. A quick and simple card that packed a big funny punch!
This is the second card which I added older Fancy Pants to. I used the jukebox from the 12x12 Happy Days elements Stickers.

See what you can add from the My Scraps and More store to the items in your stash to create some wonderfulness!

Thank you for stopping by,
