I tried to combine Jessica's favorites!  I have used a Cricut cut (Creative Memories This & That) for the sentiment.  I have used Kiwi Lane templates. The paper collection is Hip Hip Hooray from We R Memory Keepers.  It is so bright and birthday~y!  I also added some bling and twine along the way...
