Jot Magazine January Challenge

I decided to have a go at the Jot Magazine Blog mood board, for January. This one lent itself to a little bit of fun - lots of confetti = celebration and fun.
I have had the photos of my daughters 21st birthday haunting me for some time - haven't scrapped one of them - but this mood board changed that.
Melanie chose a Burlesque theme for her 21st party, a bit risque, with all the corsets etc, but a fun night of dress up and celebration.
Inspiration from the mood board came from the charcoal colour and the confetti - which I have replicated with the sequins on the layout.
I don't normally scrap using a dark background like this, but it worked for the layout. In fact this whole style is so completely away from how I would normally scrap. The idea of the background work came from the peacock costume worn by my niece.
The chipboard elements are from Imaginarium designs, and the lovely flowers are from Little Birdie.
I had a bit of fun adding the mini beads to the layout, a bit of perseverance getting them to stay on the page.
Thanks for looking at my layout, and any comments you may leave.
Burlesque Birthday


  1. Wow! Lovin' that background! Thanks for joining in with the mood board challenge at Jot :-)

  2. I"m so glad the mood board challenged you to scrap outside your comfort zone because this is just spectacular! And it fits the theme of the photos perfectly!!

  3. Wow! This sure is colourful and very eye-catching. Using the peacock costume as your inspiration was 'inspired'.
