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.
