The paper I chose was Basic Grey's "Life of the Party". This line reminded me of years gone by when we had simple birthday parties with just cake, ice cream and a game of the tail on the donkey! These days the parties are more elaborate with themes. I have to admit that I often succumb to the pressure. For Abby's 9th birthday, we took her and her friends to a Laser Zone party place. The girls had an absolute blast! They played Laser Tag and arcade games and ended the day with pizza and cake.
While doing this LO, I tried to incorporate some new techniques-- spray ink and washi tape. If you notice there is a trend to randomly spray directly onto LO's. Washi tape is cool design element. I bought a bunch of it from Queens & Company.
All the shapes were cut using CTMH's Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.
I'm about 1/3 done with documenting Abby's 9th birthday party. So, there will be more to come!
Thanks for stopping by, Maureen:)
