The Apron String Birthday Party Challenge #11 was to make a layout with at least 6 photos on it. My first instinct was to create a double page layout, but then I decided to really challenge myself and make a single page layout instead. I remembered that on the (Better Homes and Gardens) Scrapbooks Etc. site that they have collage templates. I found one that I liked and put my photos in. I did change the template slightly, but it was a great starting point! Thanks Lori for reminding me (indirectly at least!) about these great templates. So here's what I came up with.
I used an old TLC Spotlight (birthday) kit that I had in my stash. (In fact I have lots of TLC kits in my stash and I really should get in and use them up!) Because the photos were already set out in the collage, most of the work was already done and the layout itself came together really quickly. I just added a bit more sparkle by doodling on some of the chipboard pieces with my Sakura star gel pens. You can see it a bit in these detail pictures.
I did blur out the boys in the pictures since I'm not sure if their parents would approve.
Till next time, happy days!
