Inspired by…Birthday Layouts

I am so excited that Janet has agreed to come back at least once a month and do her wonderful “Inspired By…” posts (she will be joining us now and then for other posts as well)! She really has an knack for finding AMAZING layouts and I can’t wait to see these posts from her each month!

It’s BIRTHDAY MONTH here at THE DAILY DIGI. It’s birthday season at our house, too. In three months we celebrate all SIX of our birthdays! It’s fun, it’s exciting, and it gives me LOTS of photos to scrap! I love birthday layouts! Although I tend to be more of an “every day moment” scrapper, birthdays are on of those events that I really do try to scrap. I want my kids to look back and see the different ways we celebrated their special day. So, as I was looking for some inspiration for our upcoming birthday season, here are just a few of the layouts that inspired me!

This very simple layout is also very cool…I love the seven photos and the awesome design.

This layout shows that you can get lots of use out of your kits! The New Year’s kit used on this page makes a perfect birthday page for and eleven year old girl!

I just love this idea! I have done interviews with my kids once or twice but I LOVE the idea of doing on their birthday. What a GREAT way to capture who they really are at each age!

This layout just makes me smile! I just love the happy colors up against the kraft paper background! And this is a great example of using lots of elements without crowding the page.

And this final layout shares a story of an eventful New Years Eve birth!
