I started this layout with an idea from Alana's blog. She had used an 8x 8 page from the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration catalogue as the basis of her 12 x 12 layout, so I decided to try the same thing.
There was a lot of journalling that I wanted to fit onto the layout, so I typed this up so that I had more control over its size (and because my handwriting's not great, anyway!) I've used the SAB set "Friendship Blooms", which you can get free if you spend $100, for the flowers and to create the piece of white background paper that is mounted behind the journalling. The heading is done with the Big Deal Alphabet, and I cut the 18 from the numbers on a sheet of the Treehouse designer series paper. The colours of the layout are Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink and Bashful Blue.
January is almost over - don't forget that if you'd like one of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, you must place your order with me before the end of February!
