It's my day over at Miss Kate Cuttables Blog.
I made a layout for my daughter's lifebook. She turned 11 this April and her birth mother was able to visit too.
You can find my inspiration here
I used Christmas Countdown, Banner, Balloons, Happy Birthday, and Birthday Girl files for my layout.
For the background, I used a piece of watercolor paper and sprayed it with WPlus9 color sprays (Bloomsberry, Sweet Gelato, Lake House, Sweet Nectar, and Shimmer Mist) and Heidi Swapp Color Shine (Gold).
For a bit of interest, I added foam tape to the balloons along with twine for the strings and banner.
The pieces of 'tape' were created using a straight cut and some shapped scissors. Also, the photo frames were created by layering rectangles.
I don't add pictures to my layouts when posting online....mostly out of habit for her safety. With that said..some of the frames are not fully tacted down so that I can insert photos easily.
