It's your birthday!!! Sketch #76

It's Let's Capture Our Memories owner Isabelle's birthday this month (and DT members Aurélie and Jocelyne too!)- and we're celebrating with festive layouts. I only made it for a short time at the Happy Birthday Crop last weekend, but it was quite efficient at getting some inspiration back, after a very full week.

This layout was made to celebrate DS#2's second birthday. It was fun to make, and with the wonderful sketch by Emma Stafrace at Page Drafts. What a fun sketch. It just begged to be used for those fun events, with a lot of activity and people, but no great pictures, just a bunch of little snippets of pictures to tell a great story...

I used a ton of Simple Stories Happy Day collection, and a snippet of a Studio Calico scrap piece of paper. I made my background with a neutral sheet and decorated it with stamps (Jillibean Soup, American Crafts, My Favorite Things by Laina Lamb) done with Stampin' Up ink and some Tim Holtz masks. I always like to sew a bit on my layouts and this was no exception. I usually add buttons, wood veneers and other embellishments, but the paper is so colourful, and the stickers so cute, that I didn't think it needed more. It's already "busy" enough as it is... 

Hope you like it,
Happy scrappy week,
