Story Scrapbook Challenge : All About Birthdays

Hi it’s Carol here and yay it’s September and that means it’s my birthday month, actually I know a lot of people born in September so happy birthday to all of them.

So this month I want you to tell a story about a birthdays.

Perhaps it is a story about your 18th or 21st birthday, a special coming of age, maybe a lockdown birthday and how you celebrated, or didn’t.  Does your family have a birthday tradition they hold dear and it’s been continued down through the ages.   Did you bake amazing birthday cakes for your children as they grew up, and did you have any of those concoctions documented?

Have you been on a special birthday trip?  Do you take the day off work for your birthday?  Do you have a particular wish you wish for when you blow out the candles? (you can whisper it on your scrapbook page, we won’t tell).

Are you a Christmas baby?  Did you get married on your birthday?  Do you share your birthday with anyone famous, that would make a great page?  What does your Zodiac say about your and the day you were born?  Maybe do a page of things that happened on that particular day.

Is there a special restaurant you like to dine at for your birthday?  Is there a special birthday treat you receive?  Have you clocked an 0 and done something wonderful, maybe even dare devilish, for your birthday?  Have you given or been the receiver of a surprise birthday party?

I want to know it all, all about birthdays.

The creative team have jumped on board with some terrific example pages:

Carol (oldbag165) hit this one out of the park.  I love the blending first and foremost.  And I love the subject finding out who she shared a birthday with.  Maybe this is something you can do too.  How fun.

Here’s Monica’s page (mosbaskets) and all I could say was what!!!!????  A birthday cookie!!  I love it.  What an awesome way to celebrate her son’s birthday who did not take too kindly to cake.  I can relate I have a husband that does not like cake.  I love this precious family memory she has scrapped.
