I came to digital scrapbooking by way of Project Life, which I did in physical form for the first year and am now trying out doing digitally. So I'm very new to all of this, and very excited to be learning! You can follow along with my Project Life adventures (and find all my blog train goodies and other freebies) at my blog, Scrumptiously: http://eversoscrumptiously.wordpress.com/
This was a disappointing layout to create. I picked up this template free somewhere a long time ago, and didn't realize until I'd placed all 17 of my photos that the shadow part of each polaroid frame layer was not a drop shadow but rather part of the layer. Which meant I couldn't clip a textured paper to them (they were flat, pure white). I tried about five different things before I finally figured out a workaround that worked, making what should have been a relatively simple layout into a time-consuming one. By the time I was done struggling with that part I had no energy left for ornamentation, so I kept things very simple.
It's actually quite fitting, though. My birthday is often difficult for me and this was a particularly lackluster night. So the fact that I feel annoyed and somewhat let down when I look at this layout is totally appropriate!
