Happy Times - Three Layouts

Since this is National Scrapbooking Month I'm sharing some SIMPLE layouts I made for the weekend using the Happy Times paper pack that I got free with a $60 purchase.  It was perfect for the photos I took of my mother-in-laws 90th birthday.  I'm sharing this first one with this scrapbooking Heart 2 Heart Challenge. To coordinate with the gold foil striped paper, I cut Cricut numbers using gold glitter paper. I kept embellishments simple cutting Cricut flowers from Blush and Pomegranate cardstock and adding gold sequins. (The words "great" and "golden years" were welded and cut using the free "love moment" font I had downloaded to my computer.) I like to make these simple layouts for 4" x 6" photos and an occasional 4" x 4."

One of my scrapbooking friends made her beautiful cake, all from scratch! The flowered papers worked perfectly with the cake and table photos. I decorated the tables with silk flower garlands and pinned photos of Virginia to both garlands. I made stand-up photo holders to put on the tables. Guests were told to take a photo as a memento before they left. It became a wonderful "mixer" as people went around to different tables to look at her black and white photos over the years. Both family and church members had a chance to get to know each other. (Words "sweet" and "lovely" were cut using Cricut Quarter Note.)

The background paper on this last layout so perfectly matched her blouse and her great-grandson's shirt.

Thank you for visiting! Happy scrapping!
