40th Birthday Cake

Well, I made one for my nephew, Chase, who turn one at the beginning of the month so I decided to go much further in age and made a birthday cake keepsake book for Scott for his 40th birthday.



I used the same rub-ons that I used on Chase's cake, I really like the style of these from Scenic Route:


I went to CVS and used their Kodak Kiosk to make 2x3 pictures so I could fit more in the book:








I love these wood flourishes from Kaiser, they fit so perfectly on this layer of the cake:






Cake Mix:
-CS: Bazzill Basics “Mud Pie” and Craft and Craftin Glitter Paper “Coffee”
-PPs: K&Company Tim Coffey “Fall Script” and “Fall Gold Leaf Scroll”,
K&Company Ancestry.com “Teal & Dots & Swirls Glitter Paper” and “Brown Swirls Glitter paper”
-Rub-ons: Scenic Route Paper Co "Birthday Rub-On Words"
-Distress Ink: Tim Holtz “Vintage Photo”
-FCI: Colorbox “Celedon”
-Glitter: Stampendous “Crystal Snow – White Ultra Fine”
-Blossoms: Prima Mulberry Paper Flowers Teal, Prima Got Flowers? Brown and Prima Artful Collage
-Wood Flourishes: Kaiser “Borders”
-Misc: Ribbon, Rhinestones, Black Chipboard, Adhesive
