Challenge 1a - Owen turns One!

So, I finally replaced the magenta cartridge and was able to print the pictures that I had originally wanted to use for the first challenge (but wasn't able to). I changed it up a bit by using a block of wallets in an 8.5 x 11 area on the right side of the spread.

This is actually a double page layout with an additional single page layout for a third page.

It's going in Owen's birthday album. Birthdays 1, 3, & 4 complete. Need to do #2 and his album is DONE!! Until 4/25, anyway!

How to Eat Cake - Single Lay Out:

As I was putting the Double Page Lay Out together, I had everything complete except for the title. I was agonizing over how to do it, what it should say, what I should use for it, etc. when Jordyn came into my office.

"What's wrong?" she asked.

"I'm just not loving this lay out." I replied.

"Hmm, well it looks ok, but I'd change the background paper. That doesn't really go," was her unsolicited advice.

"Uh, thanks, but no thanks. Besides the fact that I didn't ask you for an opinion, the background paper is already glued down, thankyouverymuch. Don't you have someone you need to go text?"


So, I still want to do Challenge 1b, and of course I will move on to Challenge 2 as soon as possible.

Let's just hope I don't run out of Cyan in the process!
