First Birthday with Blue's Clues!

My goal was 10 pages at my crop yesterday, and I finished 9! WOO-HOO!!! Not too bad, I don't think, considering the first 3 hours were eating and socializing! LOL

Kacy is 3 1/2, and I have yet to scrap one single first birthday picture... until yesterday!!! Here are the pages I did:

On this one, I did some "hidden journaling" for the first time, under the cake picture. I don't know if my cutter isn't cutting properly or if it was me (gee, imagine that!), but my paper didn't fit together very nicely in some of these layouts. I was a little discouraged by that, but I think they got pretty good anyway! :)

Here is the next one:

I used CTMH paper in Pansy Purple and Moonstruck, and then I had several Blue's Clues papers, as well. I know it's not as "bright" as perhaps a first birthday should be, but the colors all work well together and the focus is definitely on the pictures!

I was so excited that I remembered to save one of her birthday napkins!!! I also, for the first time EVER, used rub-ons! I bought some at the store to try at home, so we'll see if I really like them.

I love these pictures! She was peeking at her gifts- what child wouldn't? I mean, really?

Very cute! And of course you HAD to use purple (plum or whatever color you actually want to call it)! lol But they turned out very good!

Truthfully? Her shirt was dark blue and purple, and with the Blue's Clues, it just seemed to work! LOL
