Use it or LOSE it!

I scrapped last night, I scrapped last night!!! My first pages of the new year, and I used my sketches from Friday's challenge. It's a miracle! ;)


I thought I was going to do the reverse masking technique to create the circles, but I decided to dig into my stash of patterned paper and use something I had. It's all about satisfying my 2008 scrapping goal, and I really need to use the old before I can buy NEW!

The pictures I used are from my daughters 10th birthday. It was her actual birthday, not a party, but I feel strongly about singing "Happy Birthday" and celebrating on the DAY even if your party can't be on the day. I intended for it to be a little hokey. We used baby shower napkins and the cupcakes included a fabulous "must have" fashion accessory...My Little Pony rings! hee hee
Here are my pages:

For the second page I decided to hide some pictures in a "waterfall" style, and I rotated the sketch to make it work with my landscape photos. I used my round tab punch to create hinges for attaching the matted photos with. A super easy way to get extra photos on your page...and I hid my journaling too! It's not that I really dislike my handwriting, but the page seems less "messy" to me.
