2nd September- Numbers

As today is Amanda's Birthday, (Happy Birthday Amanda!) the challenge for today is all about numbers!
This is what Amanda is challenging you to do, she says 'It’s my birthday! I’m 29 for the 5th time! Create a page using numbers as a main element – a title, subject, design feature, whatever works for you.'

Here is what the design team came up with! We are also really lucky to be joined by some of the Rock Ruby-it design team this month too!


Created using Ruby Rock-it Eklectique and glittered chipboard alphas.


 Numbers! I've always loved them (at least since I was a teenager) and using numbers as a title has two advantages for me: First, summing up the miles and kilometres I did that day when walking the South West Coast Path and second, using up the numbers from the alphabets which are normally left over!


I'm crazy about NUMBERS!
I love saving dates...
I love using them on my layouts.
That's why I love this challenge. :)
Mint and Red those colors inspired me this time.


I decided to use numbers as part of my background - and this sheet of paper from My Mind's Eye was just perfect!


I kept it simple and just used the numbers for my title.  Happy birthday, Amanda!!


I love the number challenge, and having just got back from an amazing holiday I had to document some of the new experiences we had, so here are just a few.  Obviously whilst we were in the States I had to visit some scrapbook shops too so got to play with my new rolls of washi tape and stamps!

I've used numbers both as a design element and in my title. I have put together quite a collection of alphas over the years - some of them looking really tatty these days - so this was a great way to use up a few of those leftover bits. Loved this challenge so much.

So I love numbers and this challenge really got me going. I scrapped about a lunch at my house the other day with 9 kids and 3 mums. It is really no problem having so many kids at the house, it is much worse for example going to the beach... then I just keep on counting 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and then again 1, 2 .., 9 over and over again to make sure they are all still there *LOL*

As this posts, we are enjoying a long weekend away in celebration of our 10th anniversary, so I thought it would be only fitting to do a layout for this challenge about that huge number and what it means to me. I used an instax photo (that didn't turn out) as a background for clear number stickers to make my title. I also snuck a little "2" over there on the left.

Happy Birthday, Amanda!


I love using type on my pages, especially numbers. Here I used some old Sassafras chipboard numbers for my title.
