February 2015 Scrapbook Page

18 March 2015

It's that time of month again! I really enjoyed sharing my January scrapbook page on the blog, so I'm back again with February's installment. As the month went by I found myself really looking forward to working on my pages, and spent a good chunk of time putting them together at the end of February.
This month was so jam packed that I found myself flowing over on to two pages. Even then, I struggled to fit everything in without making my pages look too crowded. I'm so happy with the finished layout though, and think it's a big improvement on my January page!
February began with a joint celebration of my siblings' birthday. My little sister turned 18, and my little brother celebrated his 17th birthday. As a surprise, we filled the living room with 75 pastel pink and blue balloons on the day of their actual birthdays - hence the polaroids. I saved some of the ribbon which we tied on to each balloon, and used it to make my February bunting. I also cut out little pink and blue card balloons, and made two for each page, to tie the pages together.
The next major event in February was of course my holiday to Disneyland Paris. I had the best time ever, and as well as including plenty of photographs that I took during the trip, I also stuck in my park ticket, some yummy chocolate coin wrappers, and a serviette that I saved from the trip. The little gold bow is some of the leftover ribbon that I used to wrap my siblings birthday presents with.

The end of February saw my long awaited trip to the Harry Potter Studio Tour, where a definite highlight for me was getting to meet the real life Hedwig. Once again I included photographs, my entry ticket and a post card as a memento of an amazing day. Every time I look back on my February pages I can't help but smile at how brilliant this month was.
Lastly, to finish off my pages, I once again attacked them with washi tape. This time I chose to use mainly gold stars and red polka dots to represent Minnie Mouse and Harry Potter. I am so pleased with my finished February pages, they truly represent what an eventful month it was. Arranging them was so much fun, and I'm still really enjoying having a little relaxing creative time every month. Only ten more fun-filled months to go before I have a finished year to look back on in scrapbook form.
