Happy Birthday Ambros

My friend Ann has a boy named Ambros, his birthday is first week of May, but since this card is going all the way to Germany, I guess it is time to post it now. 
(I hope Ann is not reading my blog)

Ambros can slide the button from left to right, I think it is kind of fun, oops, I forgot Ambros is turning 16, he was still a little boy when I last saw him few years ago in Grafing, Germany, LOL! Anyway, boys are boys, he will still have fun with this one (I think....)

I am linking this card to the challenge over at

the theme for this week is "Boys dig it"

Home is where YOU are.....

Hello there, I am sharing with you a layout today

and I am linking up to the challenge over at Scrapbookers-Anonymous
this month challenge is to used MAPS and BRADS

I started by digging out the city maps and road maps I kept over the years...

I tried to make a background out of it, but uh... no, I don't like the results, so I started adding "stuff" all over... LOL

ink, mist, pastel.... uh.... I tried them all (still don't like it)

I think I spent 3 days on and off on this layout, LOL!

my favorite part gotta be these brads
