For our class at the crop on Saturday we used a paper that did most of the work for us when it came to making a lovely page, the paper had a title for us as well as a cute banner and some lovely glitter for an added touch of glamour. So the main technique for our class was something a little bit different. We used ribbon to make Kanzashi Flowers. If you want to have a go you can find a video on YouTube showing how to make them here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TaVb1-CoKUk) although we made 8 petals rather than 5. The ribbon has a gold side and a silver side both of which went beautifully with the paper. Here are some of the lovely layouts the ladies made (I just love the fact that they have made the layouts their own).
Here is my layout with a photo of my middle son celebrating his 11th birthday (sorry the photograph of him didn't come out too well!)
