Just in Time for the Celebration
We had two grandmas in town for Tobin's birthday celebration. Unfortunately, Tobin had a cold and we had to reschedule his party with friends. But we had a wonderful time together with the family. These are our group photos out by the pretty hydrangeas in our neighborhood.
Products used: Patterned papers: American Crafts, SEI (dots); Letters: Making Memories, Prima
Hand cut embellishments: The embellishment on the left page was created from a white circle and trees cut out from the patterned paper on the right page. I added interest by lining the edge of the white circle with dots from a brown marker.
I created the journaling block by layering papers with rounded corners.
Mismatched paper: This page incorporates a new idea I've been meaning to try. I added subtle interest to the page by incorporating two different colors in the background. The left page has a darker shade of blue than the right page. I brought the two shades together by adding a darker blue journaling block on the right.
