Hello there! Happy Monday to you! Were you able to get any scrapping done over the weekend? My scrapping came to a screeching halt Saturday when my printer died on me! *noooooo!* I have since gotten a new one though and am back to business! I have a couple of 1 year old (the kid not the pages! LOL) birthday pages to share with you today. I love seeing these pages because messy cake faces make me smile every time and this kid did not disappoint! Take a look:
Look at that face!! I had a really good time with these pages! I pulled the color combo straight from the icing on the cake! I stamped the background with matching blue and green starbursts and added green stripes along the bottom edge to make things feel a little more grounded. I embossed the stripes as well as the large number 1 and the pennants in the banner to give a nice balanced, cohesive feel to the whole spread.
I made the banner by hand cutting each little pennant and then embossing them. I glued them in place and then doodled a string, so they didn't look like they were just floating! I carried them over to page two, so the party could happen on both pages!
I added a string to the base of the balloon bunch for a little bit of visual fun! My balloons are all cut in pastel colors as not to distract too much from the photos. I wanted them to be a fun side feature. but not the focal point.
I cut the title using my Cricut. It was a premade design. I also used the Cricut for the cake. I had to cut each color separately and then piece them all together. I love doing that! It is very Zen for me!
Close up of the balloons. They were also a Cricut design. I cut each color and then assembled them as well.
Close up of the banner! This is a nice way to add a frame like feel to your page! It frames the pictures and makes it feel like a completed page.
This sweet little guy just celebrated his 3rd birthday, so I am a bit behind with these pages! I am trucking along though! I am on a mission to get my family scrapbooks caught up! One day at a time, one page at a time!
Thank you so much for stopping by! I always enjoy visiting with you! Have a great day and hey...scrap a page or two! You won't be sorry! :)
