My Creative Time Challenge- 1 bow, 2 patterned papers & 3 buttons

Hello!  Today I am posting by entry into the My Creative Time Challenge--1,2 &3.  I had so much fun with this.  My youngest daughter's birthday was last Friday and I took cupcakes and punch up to her pre-school class for snacks.  She just had a blast and I got some pictures of her and her friends.  I used this challenge to create a scrapbook layout for this occasion.
I used a lot of MCT dies:  the Just Simply Live set, Hello Spring Set (to make balloons), the label and the cupcake set.  This made my layout soooo easy.  I have a few close up shots of some details.  I used a bow to tie up my balloons, 2 patterned papers and 3 buttons.  The pink photo matting was ran through a sizzix folder first to emboss and then the matting was cut, to be sure that the stitching details were not damaged when embossing.  I am not sure if you can see that detail below, but it's there.   
I created a larger photo matting that coordinates with the MCT dies with my Cricut and Gypsy.  I used rectangles from Plantin School and an edge from Elegant Edges to create the larger matting for a picture of my daughter.  Sorry, Emma but the small matting just could not contain her happiness that day!  I cut that matting and then embossed it with a Polka Dots embossing folder.  
I  used several different cricut cartridges to cut the title and the #5 candle.  I didn't make a note of which ones, but if anyone is interested let me know and I will get that information to you.  I am including one more picture of the balloons.  I wish that I had a different bakers twine to use for the strings but I have tried not to invest a lot in twine, plus I just don't have much luck when using it.  I seem to have technical difficulties with it.   
I also used some super cute ribbon that I found somewhere, not sure where now, but it worked so well with the theme.    Well I hope you enjoyed my layout and thanks for stopping by.
