A little scrapbook I made :D plus a birthday card!

Hey Everyone!!
These are some photos from random photos of a miniscrapbook I just started yesterday from our daye at the Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda Fountain! The first photo is the inside of the cover, random letters that spell out Brooklyn and the date! The second photo is the third photo of the scrapbook, photo of me in front of the place, stamped cupcakes and swirls(stamped with momento dew drops in brilliance, pretty pearl shine a little like perfect pearls). The third photo is the fourth page, some retro soda fountain clipart, the Hi Cupcake is a stamp from a cupcake birthday set that I got on clearance from Michaels for about 2 bucks! The next photo is the amazing brownie sundae!
The photo after it I used some K and company paper(it was 12 by 12, chopped it down to 6 by 6), I can't remember the name of the pad but Amazing Savings still has it for 3.99! It has a lot of cute retro patterns and things, I've never seen it at Michaels and the typical 12 by 12 K and Company Pad sells anywhere from 12 to 20 bucks! The Vinyl and the Sundae are images I found online! The next page is my favorite!! It's my cover photo on facebook! Above it I stamped you're so sweet (from the same stamp set), and above it is a rub-on that says Irresistable along with it's definition and two sundae stickers at the bottom. The word "Chocolate" is part of the paper! Last but not least is photo of mines that I like very much :D It has the little red shoes I got for 12 bucks, the hat that I mentioned that I purchased from Claires, it matched my dress perfectly! I've had the dress since highschool lol! I was shopping around when I found it. I've had several polka dot dresses/skirts, around here Shoppers World and Pretty Girl sells gorgeous vintage like (they have modern things too) fashion for great prices, anywhere from 20 to 8 bucks for a dress(depends on the size, smaller size are less, I'm really lucky lol!). Originally I wanted to wear it to the doo wop concert, but it was too cold, and it was raining on the day I went to see Fonzi so I didn't wear it then either. It was perfect for this day though! Not too cold or hot, just perfect sunny weather!

This is a card I made for my uncle who loves horses! I embossed the back paper (it's a beige woodgrain) with the cuttlebug star folder and using the little Tim Holtz stamping blending tool thing (can't remember the right name lol) and rubbed some barn yard red distress ink over it! I cut the horse with a spellbinder (label something, I never remember the pretty shapes, they're usually called labels so and so, I think this one is label 13, don't keep the cardboard because I store all of mines in the art bin storage case, but I got magnetic sheets elsewhere really cheap!). I used several different distress inks to make the background and those ranger acrylic dabbers for the white clouds. The horse is painted with vintage photo distress ink (take a plain paint brush and pass it on the ink pad and it works like a marker!), and some white for highlights on the mane and body.
