Bobby's 1st Birthday Layout

For my  nephew Bobby's 1st Birthday my sister Kelly gave him a Thomas the Tank Engine birthday party.
What little boy or girl doesn't love Thomas. 
My kids did, and still do.
For Bobby's Birthday layout I wanted to match his theme and his invitation.
Anytime I scrapbook a Birthday or Party, the invitation is what dictates my color choice.
Thomas the Tank Engine has 3 colors that I see when I close my eyes. Red, Blue and Yellow.
So this is what I came up with.

I used:

Yellow, Red, and Blue card stock
Thomas the Tank Engine stickers
1 sheet of Thomas the Tank 12 x 12 paper
Red mesh
Black Ink
Celebrate with Flourish Cricut Cartridge

I have a plastic drawer set, that I labeled with years, and every time I get a birthday invitation or memorabilia that I want to add to my scrapbook, I put it in a plastic ziploc with date and brief description and I put it in the drawer for that year. I date my drawers by grouping years. Such as 2008, 2009, 2010, it makes it easier  to find what i need when i start scrapbooking.
