Sketch Layout & Happy Birthday Emily!!

Happy 13th Birthday Emily!! We had cake last night (and we'll have cake today)!! I've been a mom for 13 years, and I cannot imagine experiencing anything more special, fulfilling, and amazing!! This beautiful girl brings daily joy to my life! I love her with all of my heart! Happy 13th Birthday Emily!!

I'm still having a lot of fun working on the Sketch Fest online crop at ScrapCity! It is still in full swing all this week! Stop by and participate!! Here is an amazing PageMaps round sketch that is one of our challenges!

Here is my layout using this sketch! The wonderful Telah at ScrapCity sent me Vintage Moon papers when I won one of her games on the ScrapCity message board. I've been hoarding these papers, because I love them! Last night, I decided to actually USE them! Shocking, I know! I also used vinyl Thickers for the title. I added some Primas and a large button. I love the way this layout turned out!! You can click on it to see it larger.

I hope you have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!!
