First birthday

Here is a layout about my first birthday, many, many years ago. I’ve scanned the old photos and they were quite taken by all the years they’ve spend in a non photo friendly environment. I managed the yellowness by converting them into black and white.  (+ I didn’t want the colors for this page to be brown and orange… Oh they joys of the 70’s)

I used my yummy Echo Park – For the Record kit. This is my take on this week’s fabbie Sketchy Thursdays  sketch:

Here are a couple of detail shots. I’m mighty happy with the stars. I misted the paper with smooch sun kissed mist (great shimmering yellow look!!!) and then covered it all with crackle accent.

the 1 is printed out from the computer and layered on black cardstock and covered with my favorite Glimmer Glam (love that stuff!!!) but it’s imp0ssible to catch on photo!

Coffee break is up, time to head back to the essays I’m grading. Have a FAB day!!!
