{Alexa's First Birthday!}

Please welcome today's party guest....Alexa!

Hi Everyone, I’m Alexa of www.curlywiggles.co.uk So happy to be here to celebrate Leanne’s Blogiversary!

It’s my 30th Birthday this year (eek!) and that’s got me thinking about all the other birthdays I’ve celebrated throughout my life.  Obviously I don’t remember my earlier ones but they are still an important part of my story so I feel that they are worth documenting. I asked my mum to tell me about my first birthday so I could scrapbook it, luckily I’ve also got a photograph from the day. Look how kitsch those cards are! I pulled the colour palette from the birthday cards. I mostly used the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection from American Crafts as it has lots of birthday imagery including banners and balloons. I also added a little bit of stamping to enhance the theme.  To create some unique embellishments I stuck some epoxy stickers onto some October Afternoon buttons.

I hope this layout inspires you to document your birthday memories!
