At the Library

I took the boys to the library yesterday.  Not an event of great import but scrapbooking is about the everyday things as well as the big things in life.

This is a very simple layout, the background page barely shows up on the white background.  I'll bear that in mind and next time I'll put a frame around a white background in PSE.  A lot of scrappers use this kind of template in "A Page A Day" books.  The template I used is Blueprints No.1 by Paislee Press Designs and the background paper is from One Sweet Thing kit by Kitty Designs both at Oscraps and both freebies.  I love all the freebies you can get, digital designers are so generous!

George's 7th Birthday Page

George was seven years old on the 8th of this month.  I clearly remember my 7th birthday - I didn't want it to happen.  I must have been happy being six and thought maybe that being seven would spoil things.  Funny the things that bother children isn't it?

Anyway, George had no such problems.  He looks forward to each birthday practically from the day after the last one!

I used one of my favourtie kits for this layout - Birthday Magic by Kitty Designs at Oscraps.  I think it's the banner, I really love that Happy Birthday banner!  Other stuff used: the template is With Love By Mushy by Little Dreamer Designs (freebie), Block Alpha by Katie Pertiet at Designer Digitals (freebie), Cupcake by Kimds Designs at Oscraps (freebie) and another freebie the Metal Mesh elements by Kim Liddiard at Digital Scrapbook Place.
