START with the base and 4 patterned papers (cardstock is optional) and add a title

THEN:Use your birthday to find the rest of your ingredients! Find your birth month to see how many photos to include on your page:
January, April, July, October – 3 photos
February. May, August, November – 1 photo
March, June, September, December – 2 photos

Use your birth date to see what embellishments you need to use.
For example, if your birthday is on the18th, you would use border and matting.
If your birthday is on the 1st – 9th, use a 0 in front of it (as in 01 - 09).
For example, if your birthday is on the 2nd, you would use 0 and 2 – chipboard and buttons ....
for 15 you would use border and stickers.. get the idea?
1 – border
2 – buttons
3 – ribbon/trim/lace
4 - bling
5 – stickers
6 – flowers
7 – rub ons
8 – matting
9 – tags
0 – chipboard

What decade you were born in determines what technique you use on your page:
30s (or earlier) – stitching
40s – distressing
50s – paint
60s – inking, misting
70s – embossing
80s – stencils
90s (and later) – stamping

 My birthday is February 8, 1951 so I used 1 photos, chipboard and matting, paint. PLUS 4 PP, TITLE.
