My Best Birthday Memory - Better Living Through Scrapbooking

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 shape
5. 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

Sponsor Supplies Used:
Cardstock: Discount Cardstock "Eggplant Felt 12x12 and Brilliant White 80#"
Adhesive: Plaid "Mod Podge Sparkle"
Embellishments: Charlene's Button Box "Bird button"
Additional Supplies Used:
Paper and embellishments: All from Little Red Scrapbook "September 2010 Kit"
Tools: Border Punch "Stampin Up", Signo Broad "white gel pen" 


  1. The more layouts I see from you the more I wonder why you haven't been doing those all along... you are so dang talented Kristina! You rock, the minis, the layouts, the cards, the altered projects... in other words... you just rock! I miss you too... can't wait to have you back here in Michigan with me... wish you lived here all the time in fact... sniff...sniff.
