Thirteen by Wilna Furstenberg

It's amazing how fast our kids grow! I know it sounds like a cliche but when you see it before your eyes and feel it in your heart it becomes part of reality. My first born turned 13 on the 26th of July and she invited 4 friends to spend the day with her. It was a special day and this layout is just for her.I want to point out a few points for you to consider when you make your next layout... (not that I know anything! he-he)

1. Try layers. I used layer upon layer upon layer in this layout. I love those little Jenni Bowlin patterned paper squares and adding them together make for an interesting alternative to a solid piece of patterned paper.

2. Tia's dad gave her 13 red roses and using this piece of floral trim is a reminder of the flowers. Using paper/accents to remind us of an event is just as good as journaling about it!

3. Using one of Jenni Bowlin's date cards is such a cool way to remember the month and day. They come in big and small sizes and it perfect to add to layers.

4. I used Helmar's premium craft glue to adhere the trim and Helmar's scrap dots is such a cool product to make things 3 dimensional on your page.

5. I love journaling on a page but with this page all the elements tells such a perfect story that I honestly felt no need to write it too. (apart form the fact that there is no space on the page to journal)

smiles! Wilna
