Happy Birthday

It has been a busy week for me......I created 2 double-page layouts for this weeks sketch over at Sketch Support. For those of you that know me, that is a difficult task.

Today I am being featured for the Simple Stories product challenge. I used the sketch below to create my layout.

two-page(OCT) 2011

And this is what I came up with. I don't scrapbook photos of myself very often (mainly because I am always behind the camera and don't have a lot of pictures). This is my 41st birthday. Joanne surprised me with a homemade lunch at the store and she took a bunch of photos of me opening my presents.


I created a section on my page that has the month I was born. This piece was cut from the pattern paper and I added stickers and used pop dots to pop them up.


I used stickers and stamps to do the journaling on my layout.


The title is also created using stickers. This collection is so much fun to play with.


I added a birthday cake sticker and a little stitching around the frame of the main photo.


If you haven't had a chance to play with this collection yet, I highly recommend it.
