Fairy Tea Party Layout

Well it only took me a year and a half to get the scrapbook layout for my daughter's Fairy Tea Party Birthday done. Jacob told me this morning that I should focus on something I have been tying hard to get done and he would help out, so I decided it was time to get the layouts for the party done (I have had the photos in had for a long time).
First I had to select the right paper, Jacob was very patient with me and held the photos while I looked at almost all my paper. I finally selected some paper from The Paper Studio, Daydream Doodle stack.
Next I had to decided what font I wanted to use on the layout. I have not been using my E2 very much and thought I should be so I looked at Cricut American Alphabet and with the fun swirls it has on some the letters I knew it would work. I used my E2 and with the spacing button was able to get it to fit on my leftover paper from the background patterns.  Next I cut out 2 fairies from A Child's Year (the one with the gift just made it for me) in some silver paper.

I cut and rounded the corners on my photos and laid everything out. I wasn't happy so I went looking for some ribbon to add to the space where the papers met. I did not want any adhesive to show so I put it on where it would be under photos only (and wrapped it to the back as well). I am really loving my new ribbon adhesive.

I had to add some fairy sparkles using my I Rock (not sure how I survived without this tool) and than my daughter came in and hugged me for a long time!! Jacob also was happy to have cleared his mind and called up Marie Elise to go on a date this evening. They left here on a fancy carriage ride both with smiles beaming. We will see how the evening plays out tomorrow. (And Jacob did not forget about the give. He'll share tomorrow announced as well!!)
