Tomorrow is my sweet daughters birthday. She will turn 17. I cant believe how fast the years go by. I am so very proud of her and all she has accomplished. We enjoy every minute with her.
Her Dad has been doing a daily countdown to her birthday for the last 2 weeks. Its changed each day by the time she wakes up. This is her standing next to the chalkboard yesterday. In honor of her birthday, I wanted to make a very special scrapbook page that we could frame. I went back in time to when she was 3, and chose one of my favorite photos of her. We have always lived near a beach, so there are many seashore photos in our house.
Heres a sneak peak~ lots of yummy texture~
And here is the completed page, all ready for framing! I absolutely love it. Its my favorite page to date!!!
Her expression is priceless, and I love how all the seashore colors blended together.
The photo is a 5 by 7. The paper is called Brilliant Blue Dot and is Bo Bunny. Its more the color of the closeup photos than this full shot, but its a beautiful color!
She played hard, the sand is even in her mouth! haha!
I distressed the edges of the sand colored cardstock (unsure of manufacturer) as you see below.
Around the bottom right corner, I added a partial border of ivory pre punched cardstock. This was in a pack by Bazzill Basics called Just the Edge.
The flowers are all Prima, but from different sets. The lace is an old piece I had lying around.
Arent they so pretty?

The journaling cards are from Tattered Angels. The larger one was sprayed by me with some Glimmer Mist from the same company. I used a color called Bubbles to age it a little, and to add a bit of blue and some glittery sheen.
I then trimmed this card in some wire edged mini pom pom in a lime green that I had purchased a long time ago. It was the first time I used it, and wish I knew where I got it, cause it was fun and easy to use. I would get some in more colors.

More birthday funess (is that a word??) tomorrow!!!
Many thanks for stopping by...
