Jacob's Birthday Party

I just realized I never got around to posting my Grandson, Jacob's 1st birthday layouts. I used one of Cheri's sketches over at Let's Scrap to do both of the layouts although I did change things up some.
Here is the sketch

Jacob and his parents live in an apartment so they came over here to have his party because there was more room. His Great Grandparents, Aunts, Uncle, his best friend and her Dad all made it to the party as will has his Grandpa and I.
Kate, his Mom, and I had both bought the same scrapbook paper for his party pictures. Kate decided to use the ones she got to make his decorations which worked out nice as they matched the paper in the layout. She had made him a banner so instead of making a new one, as the sketch called for, I just blew up the picture of the one she made and cut it out for the banner.
Here is the layout

This next layout was done from pictures taken the same day. My hubby, Jacob's Grandfather, happened to be at a garage sale the morning of the party and found this motorized jeep. Although Jacob isn't near old enough to drive it yet Grandpa just couldn't resist picking it up for him. Jacob and his little friend Katie had a great time playing around in it.
I used the same sketch as above but I also used it for the Blog Hop over at Carolina's blog in which we were to use one of here traveling quotes on a layout.

That's all for today, Happy Scrapping.

Very sweet gesture for your grandson. My son will be celebrating his 1st birthday this week. We have planned a great party for him at one of the New York venues. All our family will also be getting together after a long time on this occasion. I want the day to be memorable for everyone.
