Many old papers were used on this page, mostly Kaisercraft. It’s always good to use up the stash. I struggled a bit with the’s not something I am drawn to and always admire what other artists do with it.

Polka dots
Wood (bird)
Spiral notebook punch

Once upon a time there was a little boy who was dreamed about becoming a big boy and celebrating his Birthday.  He had watched others  enjoy their birthdays and he was longing to have candles on a cake of his own. He also loved the film Toy Story.  When he opened one of his parcels and found the wings for Buzz Lightyear, his joy bubbled up like a fountain. He flew up and down the corridor, lights flashing, wings flapping, with his face absolutely beaming.  What a special day.
