FBW #185 - Bright Colors!!

Good morning!! Guess what! It's Wednesday, which means a new challenge at Flutter By Wednesday's!! This week Danni challenged us to "get rid of the winter blah's, use bright colors" AND be sure to include a butterfly, fairy or angel. I chose to do a birthday layout from Florida in 2011. Ashleigh celebrated her 11th birthday. Look at that tan!!! I thought this certainly looks bright and fun!!! Be sure to join us this week and remember, get rid of those blahs and don't forget your butterfly, fairy or angel!!

(be sure to see below photo to see how I did my background!)

You can't see the background very well, but I made a "custom" background in My Memories Suite and here's how I did it!

Choose "background" and then "custom" which brings up your photo's

I chose Ashleigh's birthday cake

Was a little too bright for me, so adjusted the "opacity" to 40

And here's what it looked like before I added the pics!
