Laya's Birthday


This layout is going into Laya's album. It's some family photos from her birthday. I used a sketch from Sketchabilities to do this one. I'm also entering it into a few other challenges. Scrapfit had a challenge to use a doily on your layout and it worked perfectly with this sketch. Unique Crafters had a challenge to use ribbons on your layout and I incorporated some little ribbon bows into my flowers. The Paper Variety had a challenge to use handmade flowers on your layout. I made some little rolled flowers as well as made some flowers out of the patterned paper and then added another flower to the center of these. I used an older line of Crate paper. Love using up some of my stash!

Materials- Patterned Paper- Crate Paper Cottage Collection, Cardstock- Bazzill, Punches- Martha Stewart, Liquid Pearls- Ranger, Stickers- Crate paper Cottage Collection, Flowers- iamroses, Ribbon- Dollar Store, Ink- Ranger Tim Holtz
