A birthday page

We have 2 birthdays coming up in the Caldwell household within the next week or so, and this weeks SLYMI challenge on UKS was to scrapbook a birthday, so I thought it would be a good idea to do a page for Hannahs last February!

I went girly mad with this LO, lots of pink, cakes, glitter etc, but am pleased with how it's turned out.

The birdy acetate (Papermania) is held on by stitching all the way around the outside (i did regret starting this at about 1/4 of the way round!) and the title comes from the Beatles song.

I used a fair bit of old stash on this page, continuing my enforced stash diet, but it's quite a bit of fun rooting though my stuff to find things I'd forgotten about. The numbers are from a K&Co set bought ages ago, they looked nice, but shed the glitter really badly, so i sealed the top with Glossy Accents, problem solved.

My fave part of the page are the cakes (I'm not calling them cupcakes, too American for me!) I used Glossy Accents again, and added lots of microbeads for the sprinkles.

Spent this morning making birthday cards, so will wait to upload these until next week.

1st interview of 2 tomorrow, so hoping for the best....
