Bo Bunny - You're Invited by Rachel Lowe:

Happy Monday everyone Rachel here again.
Ok hands up who finds birthday photos hard to scrap? My hand is up! I always find birthday photos difficult to take and they end up just capturing the chaos of the day.  I now have a very organised way to ensure I have one photo I can scrap each year. One child, one card with the age on it and some good light!
 This collection is just lovely with its pastel colours, ombre papers and a hint of black to keep it modern. Birthdays are candles,  balloons, cakes and pretty packages of course!
I foam taped the die cut balloons (also adding twine) which creates the illusion they are floating. I added some enamel dots to add texture to dot paper. I also foam taped my photo.
It really is a wonderful way to watch your children grow taking the 'same' photo each year. I also do this for the first day of each school year.
Here is another layout using the same collection.
 This layout is soft and I adore the pastel hues and florals.
 I have used a digital cut file from Silhouette to create the XOXO background and then used papers randomly to create interest. This layout would work without it and instead you could cut two floral strips at 1 inch each and attach to the top and bottom of white bazzill.  I have fussy cut several flower bunches from the floral paper. I have randomly added enamel dots to flowers and as I always do I have foam taped elements such as my photo, flowers and chipboard to add extra visual interest.
So even though this collection is about celebrating it doesn't have to be just about parties it can be any event in your life you want to celebrate.
Happy scrapping your own special celebration!

  1. Fab layouts Rachel, I try and get a similar birthday photo too! Love the silhouette background on the second layout.

  2. With four children this is the onky way I can get a scrapable photo, it's lovely to look back and see how they have grown and changed.

  3. Love this range and that layout with the silhouette cut us beautiful! So fresh, so striking.

  4. two great layouts Rachel, love the idea for the bday photo, I'm a shocker with the camera, this idea would have been great, but mine's turning 21 next bday so a bit late!!. Great use of the silhouette on the other, love the patterns popping through.
