Nico is Two Years Old!

Where does the time fly?  My best friend's little boy turned two not long ago and in honor of his birthday I made him a scrapabook page.  Well, I made his mother one.  He would probably just try to eat it.  Or vacuum it.  That's really what he's into right now.  

I did something a little different with this one - going with a simple block pattern.  But I wanted it to have tons and tons of texture so I decided to add buttons and a bunch of little glittery pieces that I received as a RAK.  Using my stuff, using my stuff . . . I used DCWV's newest birthday stack.  It's such a bright and fun paper. Turns out that the paper warped a little because I got it a bit too wet.  I might have been slightly heavy handed with the glossy accents I used to adhere the buttons and glittery gems.  Oh well, it still looks good and Brandy is happy to have something commemorating Nico's big day.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. What a bright and cheerful layout! Great way to use up embellies! It never would have occurred to me to use Glossy Accents to adhere buttons to a page. Thanks for the tip!

  3. Wow, this is AMAZING!! The colors are so bright and love all the fun embellishments:) Great job!

  4. Love all the colors and all the embellishments. But you know that I am an embellishment queen - you inspired me to consider putting the buttons in color order. Consider being the key word... Thank you - the kids loved it.
