Today we are giving you a two for one offering, by showcasing a His and Hers theme. I’m sure, if you’ve hopped on over from the lovely Susan Wong, then you’ll have already seen some fabulous inspiration … Well, I hope to inspire you yet further.
Having recently celebrated our son’s 7th Birthday, I couldn’t think of anything more fun to share with you than the silly Photo Booth photo’s that we created at his party. We thought it would be a lovely idea to set up a mini Photo Booth to take a fun shot of each child to remember them by and the fun they had shared. To give them an idea, I decided to go first and of course, hubby couldn’t help but capture me too. Now, I’m not normally a scrapbooker, but for this theme, I decided to share two scrapbook pages with you, both very similar, but really quite different in their colour choice and layout …. quite simply His and Hers.
Yes, that’s me, the mad mummy setting the scene for what was expected of the children. They had fun classes, hats, necklaces and suchlike to wear and a mock polaroid photo frame, made from a Foam Board to capture the fun in.
With all of the colours in the Hawaiian necklace, it was hard to decide what colours to opt for for my layout. Hey … it’s a celebration, so lets go all out colours and fun! Emerald Envy to match the colour of my cardigan and Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight to match some of the flowers. I just had to get a pop of the orange in there somewhere, so stuck a few of the Tutti Fruitti sequins on for good measure. The celebration was quite simply ‘Amazing’ so this Sale-a-Bration die, just had to be used.
Yes, I do still have my regular glasses on beneath those oversized Elton John Glasses.
First up was Bertie and his little friend, with whom he shared his party with, then it was time for individual photo’s. Our little boy was thoroughly enjoying himself and was indeed quite awesome that day. He’s a great kid with a wonderful spirit and just like his parents, up for having fun.
Now you’ve had Hers, it’s time for His and keeping to a very similar layout of a rectangular photo towards one corner and a diagonal splattering of interest behind, I set to designing his page.
Epic Celebration is a FREE stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration offering and it’s just fabulous for kids and teenagers birthday cards. Teamed with some silly photos, it seemed only right and fitting to be used.
Now …. you might see a glaring mistake here, in that our son turned 7 and not 8. Yes … Mummy got it wrong.
How I got it wrong?
These projects were actually partially designed for this hop, but not physically made when I joined the hop only yesterday. Sadly my day didn’t start very well in that I was faced with a situation at home that needed my attention. Very sadly my lovely craft room, which is in a beautiful summerhouse at the end of the garden, was broken into during the night, so I spent most of the day dealing with Police, Crime Investigators and Locksmiths. Needless to say, my time was cut somewhat short to finish my projects and in my rush to get them made and photographed before doing the afternoon school run, I stupidly picked up the wrong number when die cutting. You could say this summed up my day really.
I did at least manage to finish pulling these projects together for you and thankfully our son saw the funny side of it. Little did he realise the stress that his mummy had been under that day which resulted in this crazy error.
Thankfully, the thieves clearly weren’t crafters as they left my Stamparatus there on the table, right before their eyes. Oh how pleased I was to see that.
Next up we have the very talented Jennifer Frost, who I know will delight you with what she has to offer for her His and Hers theme. Do enjoy the rest of the hop and enjoy the up coming weekend.
