Lasting Memories Challenge # 77- "Let's Celebrate"

This week at Lasting Memories our theme is Let’s Celebrate!”- We want to see a special celebration layout – birthday, anniversary, milestone, graduation…possibilities are endless!
One of my crafting goals this year is to get my scrapping done that tells my story. So this week as part of the celebration I decided to do a layout of my 6th birthday party. I don't really remember this party, although I do remember the house. We lived behind both sets of my grandparents until I was in first grade. And I would love to pop in to see them. I had my Grandpa O convinced that my mother was not feeding me. In reality Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup tasted better at their house, because I always got a bottle of Coke to go with it! I never got pop at home, LOL.
