Suprise Party Layout

Back in May I threw my mom a suprise birthday party at our house. It was a very small party, but was alot of fun. I wanted something in bright colors and was going to go with orange and white and then decided to throw in some green in there, and totally didn't even hit me that those are also the colors of her bedroom. Funny how it worked out that way, and I let her take home some of the decorations to go with her decore.
I cut the big Birthday saying from my silhouette. Then I used American Crafts Remarks alphabet stickers to finish off the rest of the title. I used a few buttons around the layout and my favorite border punch to add some finishing touches to it. I printed out the journaling on some vellum and glued it right over the green paper on the right side of the layout. I added a few orange rhinestones to finish it off as well.
I also decided that instead of one larger focal photo, they all were a good representation of the party, so I printed them all the same size and just trimmed them to fit equally across the entire layout.
A very quick and simple layout, but I enjoy those kind of layouts the best. I am re-learning again that sometimes less is more in the end. :)
