The line up for the hop is the same as yesterday so if you have again arrived here from Lucy's blog, you are right on track. If you would like to start at the beginning, please go to SweetSasyDiva's blog.
Yesterday I shared with you a layout about my daughter's 9th birthday. Today is the other half of the layout:
Look familiar? It should! One of the things I love to do is create a one page layout and then mirror it to create the page that will face it in the scrapbook. Sometimes this is much easier to do than trying to create a full design for a 2 page layout for me.
I again used the cart Letter Envy. I cut the rest of the title using the Font feature at one inch. I took a close up of it in case people were wondering how it looks in real life. Even though I don't explain this in the journaling, for the weeks leading up to her 9th birthday, we kept telling her, "Oh, we can't wait until you turn 9, then this (whatever it was at the time) won't happen anymore" and "Are you 9 yet?" when she would do something undesirable. She thought it was funny so don't worry, we weren't being mean. :) So the title "9 finally" is just right for this layout.
The sun at the top is actually the negative of yesterday's sun cut. I then inked it and used a Christmas stamp in it! The journaling block was also from Letter Envy, the crest on letter L without a lot of the layers. It was cut at 4".
Here are the two layouts together as they will appear in my scrapbook:
