Celebrating at More Than Words

Happy New Year! What an interesting, outrageously fun and sometimes very challenging year it has been for me. I hope 2017 was good to you and that 2018 will exceed your expectations.

Over at More Than Words, we're celebrating our birthday - yes, we're two years old! I'm so thrilled that after 24 challenges, we're still going strong! To celebrate, we thought we'd share the birthday fun with you and make 'Birthday' our word to be influenced by and we want to see at least two tags on your layout, canvas or art journal page.

I went the whole hog and created a double page layout about my last birthday celebrations.

I wanted to tell the whole story of the different bars we went to and the great night we had so there's a lot of journalling on this page.

I placed each photo in its own paper and embellishment cluster and added a co-ordinating tag to each one. My page has four tags.

I added the journalling onto panels under each photo and stenciled each panel in different colours.

Are you going to take up the birthday challenge at More Than Words? You can find all the details here.
