We're in the birthday party negotiation/planning stage for this year. The girls birthdays are in August and September, so we have some time, but I generally like to get the girls locked into a theme around now so I have time to plan at a more leisurely pace.
Ellie wants to do something at home that involves mini ice cream sundaes (who wants a mini sundae? I'm all about maxi sundaes) and Carina stated that she wanted a pig party???!!!
Anyway, I've been trying to get my act together scrapbooking birthdays and finally finished up their Frozen party (from two years ago) over the weekend.
I actually made a lot of layouts for this event, partly because my older sister was in town for the party which meant I got a lot of photos, but it was a big party, the first one at our house and likely the last joint birthday party we'll have.
If you want to read about the party, that post is here, and I did one layout over a year ago here.
I saved one of the signs I made for the party and documented some of the decorations/set up in this one, really simple, just a sheet of patterned paper and some journaling:
A few layouts of the party activities:
As you can see I tried to keep the layouts pretty simple, nothing too crazy/complicated. Since there are so many layouts for this even, I needed to balance getting it done with slaving over a layout. This is also all stuff in the stash. I mixed 12x12 papers with 6x6 pads (Antler Toss and Birthday Girls layouts) and even used Journaling cards as mats for the Cleaning Up Snow layout.
It feels great to cross off a big event from my list of things to scrapbook, and definitely feels like I'm getting into the groove! Hoping to get lots more done this summer!
