Happy Saturday !! I am finally sharing one of my scrapbook layouts from the Scrapbooking Retreat I went to a couple weekends ago !! These pictures are from Jackson's 2nd Birthday party, and instead of playing up the Sesame Street theme I decided to just go with bright colors and a "Celebrate" theme ... I am really pleased with how it turned out !! What do you think ??
Isn't that SO super fun !?! I chose these pictures with some highlights from the party - showing off his cute Elmo t-shirt that he wore, along with the un birthday hats (Being modelled here by my Sister in Law Barb); blowing out the "2" candle on his beautiful cake with Mommy, and showcasing the fun decorations we had !! Love it !! I cut all the pictures to different shapes and sizes and matted them with Whisper White cardstock. I cut a piece of Tempting Turquoise cardstock to 11-1/2" square and matted it onto a piece of 12" Basic Black. My fun color combo is Pacific Point, Real Red, Gumball Green, Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight. I took a piece of each of those colors from the Brights (and 2012-2014 In Colors in the case of Gumball Green) Patterns DSP Stacks and ran them through my Big Shot with the fun wave design from the Tasteful Trim Bigz Die. Love that fun block of rainbow color !! I also put a 4" strip of the Real Red Polka Dots pattern behind my pictures, which just grounds them a little bit.
My stamped image uses the really fun Celebrate stamp from the Seasonal Sayings stamp set, which was carried over from the Holiday Catalogue. Love this fun stamp !! I cut a strip of Whisper White cardstock just a bit wider than the stamp itself, and stamped the image repeatedly with all of the colors of ink. I then ripped the bottom edge off and stapled it to my layout. A second piece of Whisper White all ripped around the edges serves as my journaling piece. Another staple attaches that to my layout. I am so pleased with how fun and colorful this page turned out !!
Well, thanks a lot for coming by today. I hope you enjoyed my layout !! This is the first bit of scrapbooking I have shared on my blog. Do you want me to share some more ?? I think I will from time to time. Hope you have a great day and Happy Stamping !!
