Be Awesome Layout

 Happy National Scrapbook Day!



(hope you hopped on over here from Becki’s blog)

My daughter recently celebrated her 10th birthday (she’s a whole decade now!) and I just had to scrap this favorite photo.  She asked for a birthday party with her friends and it was perfect that she turned “10” while bowling.  She had a blast and told me it was the Best.Birthday.Ever.  It makes my heart super happy to hear that she loved her party.  You know, she’s already an awesome 10-year-old.  We just want her 10th year to be an awesome one!  One that’s filled with fun, friends, family, and good health.

Here’s my layout!  I used the Jen Hadfield Cottage Living collection by Pebbles.


I absolutely love the golden shine of this color mist!


Layers, fussy cut flowers, golden leaves, and a purple (Caitie’s fave color) heat embossed title.  This “be awesome” stamp is just gorgeous!


Pretty Computer Font Time!  I used Caflisch Script Pro Light for the journaling on this page.  I printed the journaling onto a cut frame.  I sprinkled a few gold glittered butterfly stickers around the page.

    Fabulous LO!! Great photo with those humongous gold numbers!!! Really great with your added touches of gold, too. So thrilled for you that your daughter loved her party so much!!

    My best BD ever was in college when my roomie and my BF (now husband of 33 years!!) collaborated to make a Treasure Hunt for me that took me all over town with my BF helping me find clues here and there…..including in a graveyard and inside a book at a bookstore!! It all culminated in a party with our friends on campus. So fun!!!

    My best birthday ever? Hummmm let me think… well I was born in June shortly after mothers day so i think my best birthday ever was in 1981 because that was the first birthday I spent as a mother and I have loved every day since. Now I am a grandmother and life is even more joyful,

    My favorite birthday… I would have to say it was my 25th, because my friends conspired together and planned a fun party for me and made me a chocolate cake in the shape of a cat. As a total crazy cat lady, it was absolutely loved 🙂
