Vanessa & Lorena's First Birthday 1976 - layouts

 Lorena's First Birthday

T-h-i-r-t-y F-i-v-e, there I said it, I turned 35 this week, and I was feeling a wee bit nostalgic.  I pulled up an old photo that my Mom had of me on my first birthday; scanned it and reprinted it for a layout.

I used Bo Bunny's Jasmyne line.  I'm really liking the combination of purples, and greens with ivory.  There is some pink in this line took, but I didn't use it this time... maybe for a layout of my daughter :o)

So, I started with a huge #1 for my focal point, cut it with my Cricut - using Schoolbook font. Then I triple mounted the photo to give it depth.  I made a pretty little ribbon border with some Cosmo Cricut Halloween velvet ribbon and some Basic Grey (not sure what line, but old) ribbon on a scalloped edged piece of double dot cardstock.  Put together several Prima flowers with a bling-y brad.  I used one of my hand-made flowers as well; this time using some scrap purple cardstock (not sure what line) and some pages from the dictionary (I think I used the C pages :o)  Some basic Grey - Eva line - brads and a simple little tag for journaling.  Some pop-up's and there you have it!


Using more of my favorite Basic Grey - Origin's line (not sure if I will ever get tired of these colours) I put together a very simple layout of my daughter.  I about a third of a doilie, and several different pieces to mount and make a flower.  I used some old Basic Grey ribbon, simply tied nots in it, and used the Cricut (Schoolbook font again ) for a title.  Added a clip and some journaling and a very quick layout completed.

The journaling reads:  "my little girl is growing up so fast ... every day she surprises me with  new words or an action.  April 2010"
