I know my blog was quite last week. My craft room was busy though! Here is one project I worked on. It is from my daughter’s 9th birthday. She chose a pool party for the 5th year!
When I started this page I knew I wanted to use the leftover paper umbrellas from the party on the page. I also wanted to incorporate those small photos. Those I took from a cheap under-water camera I picked up a couple of years ago while on vacation (for the pool portion of the party). I actually went to the store in search of real, live film. I haven’t done such a thing in years! The photos came back of poor quality, but it is a fun addition to the party layout.
Don’t be afraid to use less than perfect photos and those party decorations to bring some spark to your layouts!
