Taste of Summer Layout 2 - Sweet Birthday Cake and Cricut File

I discovered a few photos I hadn't scrapbooked showing one of my grandsons discovering his first, sweet birthday cake. I must admit, this grandson was the cleanest of them all. There was only a little icing on his forehead and hand.  Of course, his father was the same way as a baby. He didn't want any mess on his highchair or himself and could eat meals at that age without getting food anywhere, unlike his older sister who was always covered with food! 

I used the CTMH National Scrapbooking Month special paper pack and stamp set, both called Taste of Summer. Oranges were on the front side of one of the patterned papers and the chevron pattern was on the back. Because of the oranges I chose the sentiments "yummy" and  "orange you sweet" from the featured stamp set along with three other stamp sets I'll show below.  Here's the simple layout with these fun photos:

I stamped the honeycomb pattern (Desert Sand ink) and "SWEET as honey" sentiment (Sunset ink) from "Honeycomb."  (Stamps are pictured below post.)

The "Oh My happy" sentiment and the bee and bee line are from a fundraising stamp set for Operation Smile called "Happy Everything."  Three dollars from the purchase goes to Operation Smile. I stamped Sunset ink stripes from an old stamp set to make the middle strip for each page. I wanted a light pattern that wouldn't interfere with the bee and bee line. Here's the close-up.

 The embellishments I used were simply gold sequins and white shimmer trim.

Here's my Cricut Design Space project file that has cuts sized for the stamping on this project. A few of the cuts are for the other layouts I've made and will post throughout the week.
