Happy 5th Birthday Cricut!! My contest submission

Most of you probably already know there is a contest sponsored by ProvoCraft to help celebrate the 5th anniversary of Cricut and the launch of the new E2 machine next week on HSN.  It debuts on April 26th at midnight.  The basic rules of the contest:
Create a 12x12 birthday theme layout
 Any cricut Cartridge can be used in the layout
You can create up to three layouts ( I only had time for 1!)
I had major computer issues and actually formatted my whole hard drive and started over! Now all my PC products work except CCR! My computer is 4 years old, but is still like new as far as speed. So I feel like I got a brand new machine! Lordy, I didn't realize how many programs I was going to have to reload and find all those serial numbers for!!
I had originally planned to wait until Friday (due date) to share my page with you, but everyone who is participating should have their packages in the mail by now.
There is a pair of scissors and a gypsy in the pocket of the bag that come out. If you click on the pic it will enlarge, I believe, and you can see it better! This was quite a challenge for me. I don't usually do 12x12! I usually do mini's or 8x8.
I used 7 carts for this on my Imagine. The pink color around the 5 isn't that bright for real. I matched the RGB of the purplish color in the picture mat! love that Imagine!
The 7 carts:
Birthday Bash
Yummy (Imagine cart)
Everyday Cricut (circle exclusive)
Blast Off (Imagine cart)
MS All Occasions
Locker Talk
Straight from the Nest
Wish me luck! Thanks for stopping by!

That looks like one heck of a party! I love all of the bright colors you used. I think you captured the party spirit. Your page makes me think there needs to be second page "the morning after". Great job! I look forward to watching for it on Tuesday.
