Celebrate 16

Finally I got to create a layout of my daughter's 16th birthday photos.  These photos were taken at Great Eastern Mall when Zahra''s friends decided to throw a surprise birthday bash for her. One of her friends collaborated with me to bring her to Great Eastern Mall on that day, October 4, 2015. Even though we are regular visitors to Great Eastern Mall, to ask her to wear something nice without arousing suspicion was the toughest of all. Worst, for me to make a straight face. Somehow she suspected something eventually and she chose to play along.

Imagine her surprise when her friends showed up at the designated area with balloons and other items awaiting her at the Nail Parlour. She had always wanted a manicure and that was her best surprise birthday gift. I really would like to thank Humairaa, Ain, and Atiqah for preparing this surprise birthday do for her. The sad part is, her very special friend did not turn up.

For this layout I used the Scrap Our Stash july-tic-tac-toe-stash-challenge. I decided to use the third row grid, that is, Striped Paper, Tag and Banner.

Here is the layout:

Location - The Great Eastern Mall, Jalan Ampang

Supplies - Kaisercraft On The Dot
Clover 3D Scrapbook Borders - Banner
Black Bazzil Cardstock for matting
Momoyo Flowers
Kaisercraft Stencil
Paper Boutique pp
Zig Pen for journalling

Pop Art Tag sentiment
Lace from stash
 Typo Wooden Flower
Reeves Gesso and Acrylic Paint
Modelling Paste
Kaisercraft Glue Dots

You & Me

This layout is for a Recipe challenge at of Home & Scraped. I have not been participating in Recipe challenges for a long time and now this is a good opportunity for me to use up my stash and photos.

Here is the Recipe for the challenge:

Let's cook up a page :-) 
1 sheet cardstock or paper
2 pink things
2 tags
4 different papers
a pinch of embossing (dry or otherwise)
3 bits of doodling
a title & some journaling
a generous sprinkling of embellishments
ink or paint lightly dusted over
Method: Place all together in a bowl and mix thoroughly to combine. Spread out randomly (or evenly if desired) and bake till done. 

Basically I kept as close to the recipe as possible but I opted out one Recipe, i.e. Embossing because I don't have any in my stash. This is the only item I didn't use.
I realized later I've used more than 2 pink things. I guess when the girls wore something pink, it is not difficult to be sidetracked. All the items used for this layout are from my stash and I am happy to use them up, even the tiny pieces. A really wonderful challenge.

Here is my layout and some close-ups:
