And this year my Mum turned 70 and my son turned 13 so significant birthdays to be celebrated!!!!
I love the colours in these papers - seriously they are fabulous versatile papers - I have used them for my son and my Mum and they suit both !! So today I will start with my sons layout......
I love white cardstock backgrounds but I cant help myself - I usually have to mist them or ink them !!! This one was glimmer misted with fabulous green glimmer mist - Tracy has the BEST prices for mist - I promise!!!
I then cut the Milestone paper and drew around the outside edges and adhered it to the left side of the cardstock.
I loved the Cheers paper and the different bits you could cut from it - I used the large scallop for Lachlans birthday layout. I have also handcut the "time to celebrate" scallop journal box.
I also handcut some of the balloons from the Streamers and raised these up on popdots.
One of the many things I LOVE about Tracys store is that there are always fabulous embellishments to add something unique to your layout. In this case I have added the funky little Happy Birthday pins and a gorgeous wooden button - I added some red twine and a cool little ice cream charm . To balance the red twine on the button - I also glued some loopy twine at the top of the layout .
I love using the bonus strips of paper you get with Kaiser papers now and I have used these on this layout for added texture with my pinwheels!!!
And here is the finished product!!!
I will be back later with another birthday layout featuring my Mummy!!!!! In the meantime check out the fabulous range of papers HERE!!!!
