Summer Birthdays!

Hello all,

I'm sharing with you my layout for the July SGC challenge at Swirlydoos kit club.

This month the theme was summer/birthdays and there had to be two photos. There had to be some elements on the page that were in two's and  a verse/poem.
The theme was easy, my Dad and my Husband both have birthdays in July, in fact they are both on the same day!
I had 2 metal hearts, 2 chipboard hinges, 2 people in the photo and the layout was about 2 birthdays.
I then added the verse 'And in the end it's not the years in your life that count its the life in your years'.
And I did use 2 photos! This I was wondering if it was a cheat or not?!? I used two identical photos but cut one a lot smaller then the other. I then layered them up so they aligned perfectly like doing a decoupage. So its two photos in one!
The BoBunny papers were a Prize I won from a Sketch Challenge at Swirlydoos.
The chipboard Hinges by Southern Ridge Co. were in a Blog Hop prize I also won from Swirlydoos.

Here are some close up's.

The 2 chipboard hinges were painted with the Viva gold paint.

The foam hearts were part of the Amy Tangerine Alpha set.

I rolled the end of the filmstrip up and fastened with a paper clip.
This photo also shows the layered up photos really well. The top photo is layered up with cardboard to give it better dimension.

I used the Jazz glitter glue on the edges of the flowers as well as some glitter glue dots around the clusters.
