Birthday number 9


This is a page I did to mark my eldest's birthday, I put some hidden journalling behind the photo on a Tim Holtz tag with information about his character and what he is like.  The photo was an attempt at being arty but I really like it, it is slightly out of focus too but I still love it.  The inspiration for the page was the Scrap365 monthly sketch, there is a new one up now and you can win a prize.  I know I should bookmark things more but I saw a quilt with this kind of rainbow pattern on it and thought it would look good on a page too.

The papers are all Crate Papers Farmhouse, and I used some of their chipboard and paper embellishments too, an American crafts cake and some maya road green rose ribbons, twine and random buttons from my collection.  I added some flicks of my new white glimmer mist rather than paint - I love how well it stands out on the paper - I was worried they might be a little watery but they aren't and they give a really good colour.  The idea for the title and the number are all Ali Edwards ish - having started a bit of project life I like the way she puts things on her photos - hence the number 9 and love the handwriting font and you can download her font for free from creating keepsakes....so I loaded it into my silhouette and had lots of fun welding the letters together.

Other news This weekend over on WeScrap there is an online crop going on with lots of prizes and there are lots of challenges to join in on. 

I am also proud to have become an Auntie again to a little boy who I am sure will feature in my pictures - he is absolutely gorgeous and I have already had cuddles with him and so did my kids.
