The Scrapbook Garden - Happy Birthday.......21st

This is my 3rd layout for kit 4 for
It shows my grandparents and my Aunt Edna as she
celebrates her 21st birthday.
As many have pointed out, the photos are entirely
different from those celebrating a 21st birthday these days.

For this layout I used the
gorgeous paper and fab title card.
I love the way the paper has a slight red colour across the edges
very delicate, it looks as though its been brushed with distress ink
and it softens the paper even further.
I took the tag and using some Bazzill French Vanilla cardstock
(which is an all time favourite of mine as it goes with everything)
and cut myself 2 more tags the same size.

I coloured them down with Distress ink
and concentrated alot more on the edges
to give a similar effect to that on the paper.

I added my journaling to one  and Ednas name
and 21st to the other.
I used thickers for the 21st and inked the numbers
with the same distress ink so it all blended in.

Next using the French Vanilla card again i cut a similar tag
this time I rubber stamped an old fashioned
cake stand with cup cakes on it, and added
various shades of stickles to the cakes to give the effect
of frosting.
I inked the edges of this tag also so that it matched the others

Next i used some Prima craftable flowers
I put 2 together with a brad and inked the edges of the bottom one with the same distress
ink, just a little so it still kept its delicate look.
I matted my 2 photos with the french vanilla cardstock
and added them to the layout.
and thats it..........

Edna died just as I was born, I never met her
I wish I had, my grandmother always said I was sent to replace her
I would like to think thats true.

Hi Jaqi. Super page. How times have changed! It is lovely to look back on these photos. It brought a tear to my eye when I read what your grandmother had told you. Thanks for sharing.
