Happy Birthday (Lets Get Sketchy)

Hi there!  Well if its half way through June it must be half way through the year!  How can that be!?

Its time for the third reveal of the month over at Lets Get Sketchy with a fabulous sketch by Jenessa Franco.  I used my April Hip Kit, which was perfect for this 1st birthday photo of Brielle (I love her sweet little face in this photo!), as it had the Maggie Holmes Confetti Chipboard.  I was even super brave and for the first time ever machine stitched through the chipboard letters. I put my foot down and went for gold!

I added the epoxy "1" sticker onto the Amy Tangerine camera.

My title was made with the chipboard words, and also below is a close up of the layered Maggie Homes sequins which I stapled first then adhered with a glue dot.

Love that layered fabric "LOVE" tag from the Heidi Swapp!

I also made a 6x12 pocket page with some of the remaining photos.  Here is a shot of the two pages side by side, as they'll appear in the album.  I have two other 12x12 pages that I've made for her birthday, and I'll be sharing them this week.

And here are the two pages side by side.  I used lots of the same papers, but kept the embellishments very simple.

And here is the awesome sketch:

I made a process video:

Thanks for looking, and make sure you play along with us at Lets Get Sketchy!
