The design of this layout was actually inspired by one of Nancy Damiano's layouts. A one pager that I stretched to a two pager. The floral paper, striped paper, and thickers are from American Crafts' Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection. The green grid paper and the alpha stickers that spell out "first" are from My Little Shoeboxes' Lovely Day collection. The striped yellow paper is from Echo Park's This & That - Charming collection. The pennant banner is by American Crafts (flutterbys).
The owl in the middle of the photos is from American Craft's Daydreams collection. The owls that are around the title are from Bella Blvd's Finally Fall collection. The envelope is filled with memorabilia. Inside you can find a napkin from the birthday party, one of the invitations to the birthday party, and two extra journaling tags to tell of a few memories from the party. It is fastened with Doodlebug twine and Dear Lizzy Neapolitan brad. I wrapped Bazzill Basics' Vintage Marketplace paper tape around the bottom corners just to add a extra interest to that area.
As you can probably tell from the pictures on the layout - the reason I went with 'owls' is because that was the theme of my daughter's 1st birthday party. I blogged about her birthday party a few months ago. Feel free to take a look! I still have a ton of photos from her birthday party that need to be scrapped. I think I am just going to add them in divided page protectors and put them behind this layout in the album. I may spruce it up with some 4x6 cards though. We'll see!
