SLIP SLIDING
{A commissioned layout}

Hope you all felt super special on Valentines Day. Me and hubby met on Valentines Day 29 years ago at a night beach braai in Port Elizabeth, so its always a super special day for us, bringing back memories of care free days being students.  We went out for dinner and a movie last night and saw The Iron Lady.  Meryl Streep is just one super talented actress.

Every year I am commissioned to do photo shoots of the Lindeque's childrens' birthday parties and family photos.  This was the youngest, Zach-Pierre's first official birthday party celebrating being 4.  This is one of the two layout I created of the birthday party photos and reflects all 26 friends attending the party.  I used the {Doing Life} Ovals template for the photo shapes.





I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:



Thank you everyone for stopping by and all your lovely comments - know that each and every comment are treasured.

  1. Wow I love how you incorporated all this kids on this page... I try to get pics of all the kids at the party but never really know how to incorporate them in a layout... end up doing a group pic instead!
