A tiny bub page today, just two weeks old with her Nana Neanie (my mother) on her 50th birthday.
Mums original plan for her 50th birthday was to have a Maccas birthday party (shes real grown up lol) but someone had to have a baby and ruin those plans on her, woops! So mum came up here and spent her 50th birthday with her first grandchild.
The layout follows a sketch over at Annas Craft Cupboard.
And also includes a warm-up and a workout from ScrapFIT.
Warm-Up #31 is to use patterned paper as your background, no cardstock. I decided that what better use of a patterned paper background then birthday photos, so many new birthday collections have been released lately which have lots of colour and nice busy patterns. Just like the one I have used from October Afternoon Cakewalk, in fact most of the layout is from the Cakewalk collection.
Workout #75 is trendy twine. Using twine on your project in a creative way. And a must have on a birthday layout is balloons, rather then just stick 'em down and drawn a line, I was inspired to tie twine around the bottom and have them floating from a peg up the page.
I also used twine on a banner through the middle on the page.
Seeing as I use only busy patterned paper, everything is edged with black ink to try and separate them.
Looking back at the page now I kinda wish I had omitted the yellow crochet trim. But oh well, all glued down now.
Thanks for stopping by!
