You can check out all the details of the kit in that post but here's the kit for you as a reminder of all its gorgeousness.
For these two layouts I added some mists (as usual), a little strip of gold glitter washi, a partial gold doily, some very old but very pretty mint Thickers, the Pinkfresh Studio gold alphas that I showed yesterday and a good handful of sequins and beads for my shaker element as well as a tiny scrap of vellum for the opaque cover.
I love marking my birthday - which can be a bit overrun by Christmas stuff to be honest - with some photos and often, a page and this year was no different. In fact this year, my mum came to visit and I had a bumper crop of presents so it seemed the perfect kit to record a couple of the pretty details and a "this is me - now" photo.
My gold pen seemed ideal for the journalling again so that it wasn't so stand out as it would have been with black pen which is my usual.
I had this frame left over and I've been wanting to do my Whimsical Musings shaker box prompt for some time so it just came together. I filled it with stars, beads and sequins and love how it turned out. I love the opacity of the vellum so you know everything that's in there, but it's a bit misty at the same time!
And last up was actually the starting point for me as I was delighted to see the mint elements to the kit which perfectly matched a page I've been wanting to do for a while.
When I met Kathy in the summer, we talked and talked as if we'd known each other forever and I got her up to speed with all the corners of the scrappy web which I like to frequent including Paperclipping which is a top favourite of mine. I told her about the wonderful April Fool's Day spoof they made about Noel's planner room and we laughed about being "washi'd" in with mint green washi to signal what level of friend you are - mint green is a friend you like and want to see! Kathy had sent me something in the post including the tag you can see here behind the photo which had some mint green washi on it as well as some photos of the two of us and I just knew that I had to make this page. She really is my mint green washi friend and always will be!
And finally, to finish off the kit, I grabbed a couple of the cute die-cut frames and quickly made up two cards. Nothing earth shattering on the design but you know how useful it is to have a couple of cards on hand for those special people in your life!
