I'm One & First Birthday

I really wanted to make some balloons to match the ones on Paige's outfit, and I think these turned out cute! I wanted this to be a soft, girly-type layout. Her outfit was a salmon color, which is hard to match up in scrappy colors. I played on the pinks, greens, & yellows, and I like the results!

This layout is the complete opposite...I wanted bold & bright! So I printed the photo in black & white, since that salmon color was haunting me. I just had to get her this outfit, but I didn't realize how hard it would be to scrap. know you're a scrapper when you start to plan outfits according to colors appropriate for scrapbook pages!

I've had this really bright yellow birthday paper for a few years and I've never had the right photo to use with it. I wanted to use it, but not on the entire layout, so I made solid strips of matching colors. I added buttons with floss bows, and I couldn't be happier with it! I love how the colors just pop.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work! Have a great week!
