Make a wish by Judith Armstrong

Good morning. This month I've chosen to work with Echo Park Birthday Wishes - Boy Collection. It is full of bright colours and in my first layout today I'm showing you that it can not only be used for scrapping boys photos but I think is great for scrapping girls - especially teenagers, which are not so girly. This layout features photos of my daughters 16th birthday. She had a black and white party and to contrast this the cake was very colourfully decorated and had rainbow icing inside.

Besides coming with heaps of paper there are also two sticker sheets so I really didn't need anything else for this layout.

To create this layout:
  1. Using the Boy Birthday Wishes paper for the background, cut out a rectangle 18cm x 17cm from the centre to use later in the layout.
  2. Cut a square 26cm x 26cm of Boy Birthday Hats paper and placed the red star side of this in the centre of the background paper leaving approx 2cm round each edge.
  3. Cut a piece of Boy Birthday Stripes 24cm x 19cm and place the blue side of this in the bottom left corner on top of the red star paper leaving a centimetre from the bottom and left edge.
  4. Place the rectange cut from the background paper (green side up) onto the blue paper again leaving a centimetre border along the bottom and left side.
  5. Place a 15cm piece of the scalloped blue sticker about 2.5cm up from bottom of green paper and place 17cm piece of dark green border sticker above.
  6. Place 3 3inches x 4 inches photos as a strip just overlapping the green border sticker. I have placed the first photo on foam tape to raise it up a bit.
  7. Cut Make a wish journal card from the page of journalling cards and cut down to 5cm x 10cm and place at top of photos.
  8. Cut a strip of candles 8cm wide to fit on top of journalling card and place a 9cm strip of dark green border sticker on foam tape and place between candles and journal card.
  9. Embellish with stickers, some of which are placed on foam tape.
  10. As an added extra I put some Frosted lace Stickles on the icing on the cupcake.
Here are a couple of close ups:
