Happy Birthday

Just a few days before my daughter's 7th birthday party, I finished this layout of her and her friends celebrating her 6th birthday.
As I worked with these photos, I was struck by the huge amount of growing and maturing that Bridget has done in the last year. I am sure all you mothers know what I mean. Time, could you please slow down.....

I love the paper that I used for this layout - RSVP by Basic Grey. The paper and the coordinating embellishment pack were actually picked out by my girls. Steve took them to the local scrapbook store to choose paper and supplies for me for Christmas - how I wish I could have been a fly on the wall while they were running about the store picking things out, how cute they would have been.
Using some of my paper scraps and some coordinating die cuts, I also made this birthday card.
I am slowly finishing up my 2013 album. I am proud to say that because this is probably the most caught up I have ever been when in comes to scrapbooking. So while the cold and the snow are not my most favorite things, it has given me many evenings perfectly suited to a cup of tea and some serious scrapbooking - and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.


  1. Fun layout and lovely card. How cute that you family went shopping for you for scrap items. I am glad I am not the only one behind on my birthday layouts!!!! :)

    1. Thanks Leslie. I was so touched that my girls went to the scrapbook store to pick things out for me...they were so excited for me to unwrap the package on Christmas morning.

  2. Thanks so much for linking up at Creativity Unleashed last week. Featuring you tomorrow as our ad space winner! yay! hope to see you back. :)
