Happy Birthday to me!

Yay don't you just love birthdays!

Last weekend I had the urge to do a layout! I know! must have been the lovely weather we had last week.....  Anyway I sat myself down after a lovely sunday lunch and made this:

Not bad for someone who is totally off scrapbooking at the moment is it!  It is based on a April 2012 Page Map sketch - think I am finally getting to grips with sketches (its taken me about 7 years!) and  uses up some old Basic Grey birthday papers: Make A Wish, Frosting, Assembly Required, Pinata and I don't have the name for the yellow piece as it was obviously used on something else a long time ago! The stamps used are Enjoy the Journey (Vintage Aviation) by Creative Expressions; Compass by Tabbykat; Finger, number strip and fancy strip are Daily Junque by Pink Paislee; Bike, "Travel", "Destination" are by Royal Langnickel; "King of the Road" is from Road Trip by Inkadinkado and the butterflies are from Wild Meadow by Indigo Blu - they are coloured in with distress markers and finished off with Zvacreative crystals.  I also used a black soot distress marker, Vintage photo distress ink and Jet Black archival ink.

All in all a happy way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Thanks for looking - all scrapped out from Solihull

Well done on the scrapbook page. I think it looks lovely. I've often been tempted to try it but it looks really technical and im not sure i have the patience.
