Somebody turned ONE!

My very adorable nephew, Chase, turned 1 this past Monday. I can't believe it's been a year already!

Last year I took a fun class at my LSS where we made a birthday cake keepsake book so I can't take credit for the idea of this book but the cake decorating part is me (although we used some of the same rub-ons but I placed them in different spots), so some scraplifting.

Anyway here it is, just needs completing once his parents pick out their favorite pics from the b-day party and I can put them in book.

This is two stamps I combined together. I masked the sentiment on the Fluffles baking stamp and replaced it with the other sentiment from another Stampendous stamp (thought it was perfect for this project):

Here's the Money Card:

I am new to your blog, and am so glad I found you! What an incredible mini album! Any chance that you would include the dimensions of the cake pieces? I'd love to try one on my own. My dad is about to celebrate his 94th birthday and this would be perfect! Many thanks.
