Parties galore

The next 12 months sees every one of us having a significant birthday. First our middle daughter's 18th at the end of this month. Then a couple of 50ths for my husband and me. January sees our youngest turn 16 and in June our eldest turns 21! Now we're not usually party people, but I think the next year might see us having to stretch out of our comfort zone a little!
So our eldest turned 20 last month. She is not often home and she didn't want a party, but I felt I had to do something. I rustled up a few friends and they rustled up a few more and they all came for a lovely lunch. I sat inside and watched as they chatted. I thought how lovely her friends were and how she was growing up and felt happy and sad and nostalgic all at once!
I scrapped this page about it - with the lyrics from "Cat's in the cradle" which captured my emotions at the time.

I used a free template by Roadside Designs from her blog.
I also scrapped some joyful pages of the friends. I love how you can scrap the same photo and same event from different perspectives!

It also appears to be the birthday of a particular country today. Not that I'm very excited about another country's birthday but it is hard to resist a good birthday sale! So here's one from Roadside Designs:
So if you are having a significant birthday soon - happy birthday to you, too! In the meantime, enjoy some birthday shopping!

farewell to [ksharonkdesigns]!

I almost fell off my chair when I saw this post on Sharon's blog yesterday:
I started digiscrapping in mid 2006 and discovered Sharon's goodies in early 2007. I was so inspired by her clean scrapping style. I looked forward each week to her new Friday freebie that she so generously shared. Sharon has been a big part of my digiscrapping journey and I want to thank her for the inspiration, the freebies, and for the opportunity to be part of her CT for a short time.
Here is a collage of some of the pages I have made with Sharon's templates and kits (made with shapecollage).

Thanks, Sharon, for taking us all on such a fun ride. I look forward to seeing where life takes you next!
