I started my layout using the special iNSD blog template, available on the SG Blog: http://scrapgirls.co...ayout-template/
I also kept in mind the design principles...
Three photos, repeated elements (various sizes of flowers, and 3 small flowers), color scheme (main color of white, with repeated accents of yellow/gold, green, pink, and black), title/journaling, and realistic shadows.
Happy 1st Birthday to me!! Look at this fun circus cake that mom baked for my party. I love the cute sugar animals. Can I eat the pink elephant? My cousin Michael helped blow out the candle. He’s a big kid! Oooh this cake tastes good!
