Birthday Wishes

It's reveal day at SOUS and we have this absolutely gorgeous sketch done by Sandi. When I saw what the design team had created based on this sketch, I was in absolute awe. You really have to go and check out the blog. Truly, you'll be amazed.
 
At first, I was really stumped on this one. It's so elegant looking. I decided that I just have to use my own style and see what happens.  Some scrappers seem to be able to do white space so well and it always looks great. Me...not so much! LOL! Maybe one day! Anyways, here is what I came up with. This photo was taken at Chantal's birthday. I'm getting very close to finishing up the 2012 albums. YAY! I had way too many albums on the go last year. This year's ambitions won't be so great! :)
