Her Party

Oooooh... a double layout! Now that's something you don't see too often coming from me. There was a time, about 6 years ago, when all my scrapping was double layouts because I was told that's what I was supposed to do. I'm not one to follow scrapbooking rules so I tossed that idea years ago. Not that there's anything wrong with doubles, it's just I find them quite difficult to do...plus it takes up double my working space! I normally start with a nice clean table but by the time I am done of a layout, I am working with a tiny 12x12 space on my desk.

These are all snapshots from Larissa's 5th birthday last January. There's all kinds of fun here 1) sparkle shoes 2) lots of cousins to share the day with 3) a new Hannah Montanna costume 4) My Little Pony pinata 5) blowing out 5 candles 6) Barbie jewerly box and 7) a very large My Little Pony cake with 5 ponies on it and 8) no party is complete without a game of pin the tale of the unicorn :)

I used bits and piece from Little Yellow Bicycle's Free Spirit line. I was lucky enough to win athis line on National Scrapbook Day. The rest of the goodies on this page are little bits from my stash, American Crafts Thickers, K&Co felt flower and Bella Blvd. papers.

For the misting, I used a sheet of KI Memories lace cardstock as a mask along with a pale pink mist that is a bit of a custom colour. I had Glimmer Mist that was too light and Maya Mist that was too strong so I mixed a bit of both to come up wit this colour.
