I did some playing with my sewing machine and the new Island Oasis paper when I put together this Birthday layout. The Island Oasis paper isn't just for tropical projects, it's so bright and cheerful and many of the designs are stripes and polka dots in fun festive colors. The colors used in this layout are: Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and So Saffron.
This layout design is great for birthday photos because you can fit 9 photos from the birthday party. I'm definitely a scrapbooker that likes to put lots of photos in a layout since my scrapbooks are the only photo albums that I have.
