"Let's Celebrate" layout

Hello again. Today's layout was inspired by the following sketch from the Sketch N Scrap blog. I liked how the sketch offered three photos. I am finding it rare to find sketches that have multiple photos in them. Do you agree with me?

And here's my take....
My page is kinda busy. With the colors and four 4x6 photos, there are a lot of things to take in. But the sketch helped me "organize" my page. I turned it 180 degrees, putting the photos on the right instead of on the left. I did a lot of layering and tucking things in so that I can stick some accents without taking too much from my photos. I also used a paper pad (Pebbles) to make sure that the items on my page coordinated with one another. 

I've been using up some of my "new" products and I added a few of them here. The flair, "I {heart" this" tab, and papers were all from my "new product" stash.

The heart epoxy stickers were actually from a Christmas sticker sheet. The color and shape worked well on this page despite it not being a Christmas layout.

I decided to handwrite my journaling on the lined paper that I tucked behind my photos. I liked that better than doing journaling strips on the right side that will cover the pink paper.

Thank you for stopping by. Please check back again soon.

Till next time,
Grace
