It’s My Birthday

Since I’m posting this today, on my birthday, can I just pretend I’m still 40? Rather than admitting I’m posting this layout a year after the event?

Rather than admitting I'm posting this layout a year after the event? #scrapbookingDesign Inspiration: I loved the look of paper strips on this layout by Paige Evans from her class Paige’s Pages | 10 at Big Picture Classes. I certainly have plenty of paper scraps to create a similar look.
  • Color Inspiration: I was so excited when I found the white paper with numbered circles. It was a nice neutral background for paper strips in all my favorite colors.

When you are turning 40 and your paper has the number 40 on it you have to highlight it in some way! Gold and pink circles with gold letter thicker dots seemed like just the ticket!

I wanted to use quite a few photos and the layout was already pretty busy with paper strips so I decided to use a hidden journaling card. I put a bit of washi tape at the top as a pull tab and then tucked it behind the photo block.

This layout was the perfect way to document a perfectly lovely birthday party. So for today, I’m pretending that I’m still 40 and not a day older!
