- This idea was meant for a card, but why not create this fun party hat as a one-of-a-kind embellishment for a layout?

- There are several sites online that can offer you interesting facts and statistics about your birth date. Try Birthday Calculator or dMarie Time Capsule. Include a collection of statistics or pick out one that particularly interests you and feature it on a layout.
