My First Birthday (SOUS)
This LO was fun!! First of all, I used my new Easter cartridge for the scalloped/lace circle. I used some of my leftover Valentine's Day paper. I used my new MS heart border punch. I did not have the right color of flowers (darn ~ had to go shopping) and picked up these silk flowers at Michaels! The heart shaped paperclip is also from Michaels (the same section as the fuzzy spa socks) and the buttons are also from Michaels. I used A Child's Year for the Happy Birthday title.
Things I learned by making a girlie LO ~ I do not have any ink (besides purple) that is girlie, the photos from my childhood have a greenish tint to them (not to mention the clothes looked funky), and I do not have enough coordinating girlie papers!!! I did not want the title in black, but I was not going out shopping more than once!!
Now, I am a 2-page scrapper, so I took the negative of the scalloped circle and used it for my next page. "Hippie Chick" was much easier to put together ~ not as fussy! I love the title as much as I hate looking at that contraption I had to wear!! I used the Printing Press cartridge for the title.
Thanks for looking!!
