We celebrated Jillian's 17th birthday last month! When I received this adorable Chickaniddy "Twirly Girly" paper from Craft Envy, I knew I'd just found the perfect palette for the pix of her birthday lunch.

Color Shine is my scrapbooking equivalent of Frank's Red Hot:
"I put that $%&*# on everything!"
Those paper party straws are all over Pinterest, and I couldn't wait to use one on a layout. A little baker's twine, banner stickers, and paper scraps made for an easy and festive embellishment.
I wanted to journal but didn't want it completely hidden on a tucked away tag, or to overpower the layout composition with a bunch of heavy text. Using a clear glitter pen allows the journaling to be read as if it were light pencil at one angle, and turn into a subtle, shimmery highlight when tilted away. Exactly the look I was going for!
I doodled a vine of flowers mimicking the floral clusters on the paper to tie that subtle shimmer to the other side of the page.
|That clear glitter pen was addictingly smooth. I randomly traced other elements on the papers |
and outlined hearts, frames, and flowers.
We had a lovely time celebrating this milestone with Jill. I'm making a mini album with some of the other photos from her day, and I will share it with you soon! :)
Thank you for stopping by!
