We're deep into party planning for Trevor's 8th birthday in June. He's chosen a Star Wars theme. (Sigh.) With that party right around the corner, I wanted to hurry and finish scrapping last year's super fun Angry Birds party.
I tried a few colors schemes before combining turquoise with a gradient orange paper. It reminds me of that very hot June afternoon. I added pops of green, a sparkly white title, a birthday sticker, and a colorful banner. I'm really happy with how it turned out.
Wish me luck with the Star Wars party planning!

Love the bold colors!
Loveeeeeeee this! LOVING the colors and the banner!!! Darth Vader pinata!!! Can't wait!!! ;)ReplyDelete
This layout couldn't be more perfect! LOVE the colorful banner opposite the birthday sticker, and the orange/blue combo is amazing! :) You're so creative and such a good mom, I can't wait to see what you come up with for his Star Wars party! Is he excited for this Sunday? It's Star Wars Day, May the Fourth!!! :)ReplyDelete
I'm not sure he's aware of Star Wars Day. Maybe I should find a way for Steve & Trevor to celebrate it together so that I can have extend National Scrapbook Day for another 24 hours!Delete
That would be a great idea! :) Almost every year, something comes up for me (either a birthday party, wedding, etc) that lands on National Scrapbook Day, so it's become an on-going joke. This year, my in-laws planned a big cookout and party at the lake cabin. It should be a good time, but I'll be missing my scrapbooking! :) Hopefully I won't be too tired to have some fun on Sunday! :)Delete
I put it on the calendar at least a year in advance and guard it ferociously. So far, there's never been something that I absolutely cannot miss. It would have to be something really big for me to miss NSD!Delete
I so love this layout Cindy!!! The colors are AWESOME!!! I can't wait to see what you do for the Star Wars party -- that should be a lot of fun!!ReplyDelete
And you should totally tell them about Star Wars day and buy yourself the extra 24 hours of scrapping time!! :D
My son Scott will be 8 in June as well! I didn't realize our boys were so close in age; no wonder I love all your pages about Trevor! Scott did Angry Birds for his 6th birthday and I blogged about the layout I made here: http://scraplebee.blogspot.com/2013/10/6th-birthday-angry-birds.html with a link back to you, of course, because of the tip on printing small photos for scraping.ReplyDelete
I didn't realize our boys were both the same month either!Delete
It screams summer and happy! Can't wait to see this year's party!ReplyDelete
