10th Birthday


This layout reminds me of a song from one of my favourite films  (Chitty  Chitty, Bang Bang ) - Up from the ashes, grow the roses of success.

I rarely make double- page spreads but I had really thought this through: the sketch from Let's Scrap , photos printed, title cut (on Silhouette) , papers chosen ( but not these ones!) .

The papers were not working .....I was using a white background and tried to watercolour it using a stencil and it just looked rubbish.  Then, to top it off, I accidentally knocked the cup of paint-water  over my desk and wet the papers and part of one of the photos. I was so fed up- I just gave up.

The next morning I decided that I would just start again. I chose some different papers and I was able to cover the water damage  on the photo by covering it with the 'high 5' card - it didn't matter as all the children who are obscured are also elsewhere on the layout. I actually ended up liking this layout a lot!

As well as Let's Scrap, I'd also like to enter the challenge at Aud Sentiments , which is to make a birthday project that's not a card.
