|I had a hard time coming up with an idea for this birthday spread. These photos were previously cropped and I didn't like the last layout, so I wanted to change it, but a lot of the layouts I saw had square photos on them. I just used plain old cardstock, yellow, purple, red, blue, and green, the hands background paper was from the Childhood book by Paper Pizazz, the lettering from CK's The Art Of Creative Lettering, baloons were made from a circle punch and hand cut to look like balloons with the micro-tipped scissors by Fiskars. I used the oval & circle cutters by Fiskars, I used the Zig Calligraphy marker to make the streamers from the balloons, and the zig-zag scissors from Fiskars. I hope you like it.
