I didn't realize my layout was up at Kerri Bradford Studio yesterday, or I would have shared this in my previous post. Although, on the other hand, this up's my chances of posting every day this week, right ;)
Since this is Kerri's birthday celebration week, it only made sense in my mind that I would create a birthday layout. I have plenty of birthday's that I have yet to scrap. I think a lot of times, I put off doing them because there are just so many photos to sort through and narrow down. And I always look to get as many photos onto these birthday party layouts as possible. I have always kept my birthday party layouts more on the simple side. Lots of photos, just a little bit of journaling, and minimal embellishing.
I started this layout by enlarging the group shot of the birthday girl, Sarah, and her friends. I had this printed as an 8x12" photo for the first page of the spread.
I really love mixing a chunky font along with a cursive font for my titles. I am loving using Kerri's Weathered Door alphabet kit for half of my title. Then I sift through Kerri's many kits that feature words and phrases in her own handwriting, and find the perfect cursive word for the other half of my title.
I used Kerri's Enjoy The Sunshine shape (just 99 cents!) to create the sun. I just used part of the shape, and then turned it upside down so that it rests at the top of the page.
And then there is the second page of the spread, which is ALL photos. I used a 12x12" template from Kerri's Storyboard #7, which held fourteen photos. I was originally going to create another collage, using this same template, to add to the backside of this page. But I'm now thinking that I might use a smaller divided page protector (maybe a 6x12 that would hold twelve 3x4' photos) and just slip it between the two page of the spread. I just know that I have a few more photos that I want to include, but I just ran out of time to get them printed for this.
