90th Birthday Album Layout ~ Blowing Out The Candles.

Hi everyone..  I have some sad news..  I am stepping down from the Die Cut Divas Design Team..  Don't get me wrong, I love their die cuts, but so much is going on in my family life right now.  It's very hard to watch your parents age and even worse when you're not close...  So for now I'm just trying to finish this album for my husband's Aunt for Christmas and doing a few Christmas projects... And so this is another layout for her Christmas Album...  I just have Thursday and Friday to scrap and then it gets shipped out!!! 

For this layout I used the sketch from Stuck On U Sketches...

I decided to use a couple of photos even though the sketch just has one...  this page will go with the "Birthday Wish" page I just did..  I've also added a tag behind the photos so she can journal what she wants to..
Here are a few close ups..

The borders were punched with the MS Deco Fan Punch, you can see the Prima Flower, part of the Prima Say It In Pearls, and the Butterfly I punched with the Martha Stewart Punch.


More Martha Stewart Deco Fan Border, Martha Stewart Butterflies, the hidden tag, and some Recollection Bling... (It looks like my corner might have gotten caught on something...  I need to fix that!!)

Scrappy things I used on this layout..
SU Certainly Celery CS
KaiserCraft ~ English Rose
Pink Paislee ~ Butterfly Garden Collection (Nature Sanctuary)
SU Blush Blossom CS
MS Deco Fan Border Punch
MS Garden Trellis Border Punch
MS Butterfly Punch
Recollections Gemstones
Prima Flower
Prima Say It In Pearls

Thanks for dropping by!!
Have a wonderful week!
Hugs!
Pin It!
