2 today - Jot magazine and STG December Challenges

Hi there!

I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas spent with family and friends, eating lots of yummy food and opening some special presents!!

With all of the busyness this month, there hasn't been much time at all for scrapping. Today however I got some time to sit down and complete a layout, and it was so great to get back into it! I completed this layout for two online challenges - Jot magazine and Scrap the Girls

My layout was inspired by this gorgeous mood board at Jot magazine...

I was inspired by the lovely pastel pinks and blues in the mood board as well as the sparkles. Here is the layout that I created...

I am also entering this into the December Scrap the Girls challenge which is to scrap multiple photos, at least 3!

I used lots of Heidi Swapp goodies on this one!! The patterned papers, stickers, and ephemera are all Heidi Swapp, and I also used the heart mask with gesso. So much pretty stuff to be inspired by!!

Here are a few closeups of my layout...

I created my title '2 today' with items from the Ephemera pack!!

My journalling is a message for my daughter on her 2nd Birthday.

Here I used a few more items from the Heidi Swapp ephemera pack as well as some Studio Calico wood veneers, a doily, and some sparkly sequins!

Thanks for taking a look at my layout!
