Let's see. What's to be said? ... Ummmm.... not much. :)
I'm entering this in the My Mind's Eye #26 Layout challenge- the first page is from a sketch they provided and the print paper, journal card, and all embellishments are theirs. Hopefully it's enough. It's supposed to be 80% their product. The blue papers aren't theirs (Core-dinations) but I'm not sure if they go 80% surface area or 80% number of items. Oh well. It is what it is.
I made a decision not to fuzz faces here. I hope I don't offend anyone but I've included no names so... I used the invite as the title and subtitle- I thought the banner she created made a nice title replacement and banners are just all the rage- why recreate the wheel? KISS and all that good stuff. :) The invite is actually slipped into a pocket I made with the photo strip below it. That keeps the deets of the party (address, date, etc.) bit more "secluded" but available if desired.
I'm entering this in the Simply Betty #3 challenge- make a pocket and Scrappin' Chics use a banner/pennant challenge (hope I'm not cheating with the direction I went in with it!)
I like this one though it's a bit plain. The photos took so much room that I didn't want to interfere with them (all 3 of these pages/spreads have that going for them- LOTS of photos!) The thing that bugs me is that my paper keeps warping when I use mist like I did on this page. I flattened it between books but as you can see from the bottom edge, not so great.
I'm entering it in Whimsical Wednesday's Sense of Humor challenge. I love the smile Boy has as a pirate (he enjoyed that one) and the photos of him as an alien are funny- I'd love to know what he was thinking in that first one.
