I finally got around to making a scrapbook page of Emilia's 10th birthday. I started out making this for a purple color challenge in the Stampingscrapbookers group I belong to. I did not get it done in time to enter the contest but I still wanted to finish it. After that I decided that I would like to have it done and posted on National Scrapbooking Day which was Saturday but unfortunately that didn't happen either. I finally got it done the other day though. All cardstock is CTMH. Emilia's favorite color is purple so that made the challenge easy for me to do. I got the idea for the layout from an old CTMH catalog. I changed it up a little bit though. The tag on the left side pulls out to revel the journaling this is what it says:
For Emilia’s 10th birthday we took her to the Four Mile House.
We ended up getting a private tour because nobody else was there.
We all really enjoyed it. When the tour was over Emilia got to go
inside the tee pee and pick out a souvenir from the gift shop.
She chose a tiny tea set. After that we got her favorite lunch at
Boston Market. When we got home her birthday present (Kaya)
still was not here. We had to order her from the Chicago AG store because
the AG catalog was sold out of her. Emilia was starting to get bummed out
that she was not here yet. At that point I was not sure if she was going
to make it either but at 5:30 the doorbell rang and it was UPS delivering
her. Emilia was so excited to see her and so was I. Later that night Stacie,
Alexandra, Grandma and Papa came for dinner. We had Emilia’s favorite
foods, steak, mashed potatoes, peas and salad. I also made her favorite
double chocolate cake for desert. It was a great birthday!
I made the title using CTMH patterned paper, my cuttlebug and the Your Not The Boss Of Me cuttlebug letter dies. I used crystal effects to give it a 3D effect. I stamped the middle layer with the CTMH Confetti and Favors set. After that I stamped on the purple ribbon using white Stazon and a sm polka dot from the polka dot Papertrey set.
That's it. Now I have to start working backwards and make pages of Emilia's other 9 birthdays. I can't believe it took me 10 yrs to make a birthday page for her. At least it is a start though.
Now I am off to work on a mother's day card for my mom. I hope I can come up with something soon since mothers day is Sun. When I finish it I will share it with you.
