This layout is documenting my 30th birthday cake... you gotta get the important things down on a layout!!

I wanted to use the balloon paper from Pink Fresh that is in July's Like For Ever kit.  I tried to get two photos and the balloons to sit nicely but couldn't.  So I went with a flap to hide one photo and the journalling...

It was easy to construct using washi for the hinge.

While filling in my journalling I ran out of space for the last word.  I think I managed to get away with it though - there is never an unsolvable problem!

Aren't the balloons lovely?

I had this sheet of cardstock ready.  I hate to waste leftover paint and often look for something to use it up on.  It usually goes in my art journal but this time I watered it down slightly to get an ink-like consistency and splattered an L shape on some white 12x12.  I didn't know what the layout would look like at the time of splattering but I knew I could use it some how.

And for the title I used a chunky black glitter celebrate sticker.  I wonder if there is a trick to getting these off the backing and on to the page without them distorting slightly... although the font is forgiving as the letters aren't the same size and it didn't need to be stuck down perfectly straight.

Thanks for stopping by!
