Lego Birthday! Part 1


 After doing Luke's Lego Party for my boys pages I was left with the dregs of Lego paper and had to get creative!  The top layout is from Make it from your Heart volume 1, Layout 2.   Many of the Lego squares are pieced together to make this work!  I love the way it turned out!  I used Cranberry, Honey, Topiary and Black from Close to My Heart to complement the Lego paper.

I also entered this in the Child's Play Lego Challenge! I find entering challenges encourages me to think outside the box and push myself to use my stash and go outside my comfort zone.  This one happened to be really easy because I was doing a Lego birthday Party!
This layout was even harder because I wanted some Lego paper on there and I was almost completely out!  The red strips are Lego paper and the yellow randomly placed is too!  I also made the L and H in the titles from Lego paper!  To finish off the green Lego paper I placed the few pieces I had left on the yellow side of the layout to balance the green!

    Both your layouts are cute, but I'm especially loving the first one! Love all the different colored legos against the black!

  7. I used to have that Lego paper, and I loved it, too. I completely know what you mean about wanting to use up every last bit!

    Your pages turned out great! They're so cheerful and colorful. Thanks for playing along with CPC in December. Hope to see more of your great work in January!

  8. Love these Lego layouts! Using the scraps of paper was genius, because that's usually the size individual Legos are. Great job, and hope you don't mind if I scraplift at some point.
