For the November Newsletter at Better Living Through Scrapbooking we were asked to scrap our favorite birthday memory. We were asked to choose 2 of the following elements for our project,
1. Paint on your page using object other than brush (pencil eraser, q-tip, bubble wrap, etc)
2. Make an embellishment entirely from cardstock
3. Use multiple layers of cardstock for a photo mat - try ripping, using a border punch, die-cut machine, etc, for fun!
4. Journal on a shape5. Use a very bright color palette - vibrant yellows, reds, blues, and greens!
When I read that BLTS wanted us to scrap our favorite birthday memory I was a bit stumped. I don't really have any. I don't have very many memories from childhood and I have never really made that big of a deal out of my birthday as an adult. There is, however, one very special birthday that I will never forget! It's the day that my daughter Carson was born. That was the best birthday in the world. I created this layout for her letting her know how special that day was. I chose a bright color palette of greens, pinks and blues. I also used several different layers of cardstock for my photo mat. Topping it off is a great bird button from our sponsor, Charlene's Button Box.
