A layout on ... you guessed it - my younger DD's 8th birthday celebrations. This also happens to be my DT layout for this week's 52 Sketches 52 Weeks' Sketch #34. It's a lovely sketch by Julie Bonner, that is open to so many interpretations, as you can see from the DT inspirations on the 52 blog. So do go check it out.
For my layout, I used MME's Ooh La La Paper Kit, with minimal embellishments. These papers are so wonderfully versatile that I'm actually using mainly the backs of the two-sided patterned papers! Aren't they gorgeous?
I inverted the positions of the title and journaling.
And decided to use pleated lace in place of the scallops on the left. I then gave added texture and sparkle to the lace by glueing different sized gems onto it.
This week's prize is a US$40 gift certificate from Noel Mignon, who runs a fabulous online store and monthly kit club! So hop on over and join in the fun!
