I was creating this layout for a couple of challenges at the Two Peas in a Bucket CHA Summer Social, and I realised I never announced the winner for my Challenge to Organise. I'm very sorry for the delay - the winner is announced at the end of this post!
It's going to take me a long time to scrapbook all my 30th Birthday Photos, but I've made a start today! I've combined two challenges for this layout, this one to follow a yellow / teal / grey colour combo, and this one to use your favourite scrapbooking collection. I love this colour scheme, and I still have some bits of the gorgeous Pink Paislee 'Nantucket' collection, so this layout came together very quickly:
There's crepe paper stitched along the top and bottom of the yellow cardstock, to help soften the look, and to match the frills at the bottom of my costume. I used crepe paper on the invites, so I want to use it on all my pages about the party!
I had to add some pearls or gems somewhere, they work well as little fish bubbles!
I added the yellow chevron Heidi Swapp trim at the top of this photo, as I figure just because it rained lot on the day, it doens't mean my layouts can't be sunny! I used the scallop trim (mistables by Pink Paislee) to echo the scallop on my outfit, which was a last minute addition when things were going a bit wrong!
I'm definitely going to fill a whole album with photos from this party!
Are you joining in with any CHA fun? Have you seen that Shimelle's blog posts from the show have started?
