Funny stories always deserve to be scrapped, and this one has been waiting a few months to be documented. I had been holding out for the perfect papers to go with the photos, and the new Pebbles ‘Hip Hip Hooray’ line was just right.
These photos tell a story that happened on Benjamin’s first birthday. It was my bright idea to give him a cupcake to eat. I had seen some photos on Pinterest (oh that place has a lot to answer for!) of kids eating cake on their birthdays and though it would make for a cute photo shoot, along with the fact that you should always have cake on your birthday! Of course, I should have predicted it, the little one got a massive sugar high after smooshing cake all over his face and gobbling it up! It was so hilarious to see him prancing around the room, struggling to stay upright and making some very funny moves – he looked like he was doing a drunken dance! Part of me feels a bit guilty when I look at these photos, for I know there are mums out there that would thoroughly disapprove of giving a one year old a whole cupcake (and frosting!), but mostly I remember how funny it was and how much he laughed and had a great time.
The wiggly lined paper was the first one I picked out – it reminds me how he was walking in wiggly lines, and I love the fun bright colours. I have actually mixed in a couple of papers from Pebbles’ other new line – County Picnic. I often find that lines from the same manufacturer have similar tones and feel to them even if at first glance they seem completely different! If you are nervous about mixing up papers from different lines, why not try mixing two lines from the same manufacturer like this and see how well it works.
