Birthday Fun

 One of my goals lately has been to start to use up some of the paper that I have before I make any more purchases.  While I am not committing to that 100%, I have drastically cut down on what I have been purchasing.  It is hard since scrapbook paper really does bring me joy, but I have *so* much and really need to use the wonderfulness that I have!  
     I love to work from a sketch and the August Stack-a-holic Template Challenge from DCWV was a fun one this month!  I pulled out my Dots, Stripes and Plaids stack and got to work on a layout from my daughters birthday party in July.  I thought that the papers were fun for the celebration feel that I was looking for.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my interpretation:

     My favorite part of the layout (although small) is the upper right hand corner.  I love the little "e"!  I used Glossy Accents on it to give it a little dimension and shine.  I have several more pictures of her special day so I hope to scrap those soon as well!  Thank you for stopping by!
