Happiness | Stuck?! Sketches August 1st Layout

Hi there!

It's time for the reveal of the August 1st challenge at Stuck?! Sketches! Let's take a look at the fabulous sketch created by our talented sketch designer Laura Whitaker...

Here is my layout based on the sketch...

My layout features photos of my daughter on her 12th birthday a month ago. I just love the look of both surprise and joy on her face as she unwrapped her presents!

The patterned papers that I used are from Close to my Heart, and I used a mix of embellishments from Charms Creations, D-lish Scraps, Crate Paper, and American Crafts. I really like how it all came together!

Here are a couple of closeups of my layout...

This little cluster consists of  a gorgeous hot pink chevron from Charms Creations, as well as a couple of small paper flowers from D-lish Scraps.

To the right of the photos I created a larger cluster that's made up of a Charms Creations Sea Green star, a crepe paper rosette from the Maggie Holmes Shine collection, a tassel from the Dear Lizzy Happy Place collection, and another flower from D-lish Scraps.

I added some puffy stickers to my layout from the Maggie Holmes Bloom collection, and then I finished my layout off by stencilling some yellow stars onto my background using a ScrapFX stencil and some Distress Ink.

If you haven't done so already, I hope that you'll head on over to the Stuck?! Sketches blog and take a look at the gorgeous layouts that my fellow design team members have created! We would love YOU to play along with us by creating a layout based on this sketch! Link up your layouts on the Stuck?! Sketches blog by August 29th to be in the running to win a prize from one of our very generous sponsors:

We will also be choosing a scrapbooker from each of our challenges to be a guest designer with us at a later date!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and taking a look at my layout! Thank you to those who take the time to leave a comment as well - it is always very much appreciated!
