Happy 6th Birthday Evan

Last Saturday, my daughter and myself went to one of her classmate's 6th birthday where she could play mini golf-in-the-dark, bowling and jumping on bouncing castles. She was hooked and of course, by the end of the night, she did not want to go home.

I made an explosion box for this little guy and also, made my own wrapping paper. I have followed the tutorial from stampinuplisa on Youtube. It was very easy to follow and here is what I came up with:

This is the wrapping paper. I have used stamps that I had received as a swap and unfortunately, I don't have the names of these. The sentiment got smudged by my daughter, LOL!

Here is the explosion box:

The last panels

Paper: Bazzill Cardstock, MS paper borders
Tools: Animals Cuttlebug embossing folders, EK Candles Edger Punch, Me & My big Ideas Monogram Alphabet - Primary, K & Company Wild Saffron Adhesive Chipboard, Memento Black Ink.
Stamps: Happy Birthday & Flowers (Unfortunately, I do not have the names for those as these were given to me during a blog candy)
