Bright lights, big wish...


It rained and rained the entire time during Avinash's birthday party (just like a bollywood movie), so much for the kids running around the patio on crazy candy-fueled sugar highs.  And so much for crisp, gorgeously lit birthday cake photos.  It was more like yellow and horrendously blurry birthday cake photos.  But, our family is there and Avinash is beaming.  Happy and confident.  I didn't hesitate for a moment about scrapping these photos in a big big way.

I have so many ideas and different sources of inspiration it is sometimes hard to edit, but I decided to take a cue from this pin (one of the very first I believe) and use confetti as well as keep it simple.

Of course, now I am looking at the big confetti on here and loving it too.  I remember for the 'millenium' (2000), times square had a different confetti drop every hour.  A friend of mine saved some cherry blossom confetti for me and I have always loved that thought. 

Here is my project:

I used white tissue paper from a boden order over bright white textured cardstock.  I punched lots of circles from one piece of Basic Grey patterned paper.  I needed about 2/3 a sheet for all this confetti.  I just used a glue runner on the paper and sprinkled confetti down and shook off the excess like glitter (and then I added a little white glitter of course).  I kept my embellishments to a minimum.  Stickers from basic grey, studio calico and jenni bowlin. This AC Chaps chipboard frame is incredibly high quality (much more so than all the other chaps stuff), the color is rich and the feel is glossy and finished.  I used white glitter and black foam AC thickers too.  Love these fonts so much.  Journaling on tag, tied off with a little cherry twine.  Most of this stuff came together in my Studio Calico Brooklyn Flea kit, this was a really great month!
