Happy Birthday Layout

Happy Thursday!!

It's my day over at Miss Kate Cuttables Blog.

I made a layout for my daughter's lifebook.   She turned 11 this April and her birth mother was able to visit too.

You can find my inspiration here

I used  Christmas CountdownBannerBalloonsHappy Birthday,  and Birthday Girl files for my layout.

For the background, I used a piece of watercolor paper and sprayed it with WPlus9 color sprays (Bloomsberry, Sweet Gelato, Lake House, Sweet Nectar, and Shimmer Mist) and Heidi Swapp Color Shine (Gold).  

For the papers I used a mix of Samantha Walker paper pad and 12x12 sheets for the patterns, and MFT natural brown cardstock for the photo frames.  I accented the shapes with Wink of Stella,  Stickles, and Glossy Accents.  

For a bit of interest, I added foam tape to the balloons along with twine for the strings and banner.

The pieces of 'tape' were created using a straight cut and some shapped scissors.  Also, the photo frames were created by layering rectangles.  

I don't add pictures to my layouts when posting online....mostly out of habit for her safety.  With that said..some of the frames are not fully tacted down so that I can insert photos easily.
