Happy birthday layout

Hi all

Continuing on the  Florida Album for my sons girlfriend.. and having just returned from a few days away.. I am bringing you another layout using my May Counterfeit kit.. Magic Memories.. with a layout to be included that celebrates my sons' 30th birthday.. which was the reason for their trip to Florida.

I am also keen to complete a few more National Scrapbooking Day challenges and this one here from Scrap Our Stash caught my eye.

The challenge was to use lots of STASH items as listed on their blog.

I chose:
Sequins (three gold ones top right of the photo)
Transparency (vellum quote and gold cut outs around the bottom and side of the photo)
Striped Paper (well..washi tape and the chevron print) and a # (hashtag)

They also gave us a selection of sketches to choose from and I chose this one, Sketch 5

The collection I chose was Simple Stories, Say Cheese II . The Happy Birthday badge, arrow and the hashtag are all wooden and I inked them in gold ink and then heat embossed them. The numbers for the title are Heidi Swapps puffy stickers from my kit.

 I am also entering this for a NSD challenge for a challenge on a FB group I am in, For the Love of Pretty Paper.. which asked us to create a layout celebrating a birthday..which this one does. 

I also took inspiration from The Counterfeit Kit Challenge from their NSD challenges too.. they suggested clustering on one of their posts and so I included lots of little embellies around the birthday badge and the photo.

So, that's it for tonight..but as I still have some more ideas do pop back soon.
