Catching Up With Scrapbooking

I worked off a great sketch from Sketch n Scrap blog for this layout. I used six different patterned papers for this layout.  I love all the color and how it all coordinates with my daughter’s T-shirt.  Even though we took her to a concert for her birthday, we still had cake and ice cream with the family on her actual birthday night.

I still can’t believe that my baby is 25!

Here’s the original sketch:

And here’s my layout:

I used papers from SEI and random embellishments from my stash. The butterflies were given to me on a card strip from my Stampin Up demonstrator to showcase their cardstock colors. These were from the 2015 catalog...yes, I’ve kept this for that long! I’m so glad I was able to use these colors. I feel like they coordinated perfectly. And to finish it off, I added some splashes using my Color Silk in Black Licorice from Fun Stampers Journey.

Some close ups:

NOTE: I have been following a YouTube, RTS Scrapbooking and taking her advice on embellishment placements and design tips.  So fun!
