My 40th Birthday {Layout Share}

My birthday came and went this spring with a BANG! My sweet husband surprised me with a birthday dinner with family and friends at one our favorite local restaurants. I had so much fun and was so overwhelmed by the love I felt!
This layout sketch is from Close To My Heart's new Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 1 how-to guide.  At only $7.95, you are definitely going to want your own copy!  It includes 19 layout sketches and several different card designs.
My photos helped to inspire this vivid color palette of Lagoon, Pear, Sunset, Creme Brulee, and Smoothie.  Yummy, right?  I used the current It's Your Day double-D special offer stamp set.  Doesn't that little triangle make cute banners?  I layered on the Just Blooms Paradise paper flowers, sparkles, and some baker's twine too.
The rest of the pictures (and there are a bunch!) will go in a photo pocket storage page between the two pages of my layout.

I'm stacking several challenges with this layout:
Heart 2 Heart Challenges color challenge: Lagoon, Pear, and Sunset
Come and Get It Challenges: Show Us Your Flowers
Fashionable Stamping Challenges: #29 Anything Floral/Handmade Flowers
Paper Crafting Journey: Anything Goes
Love To Create: #30 Handmade Flowers (Okay, so maybe I'm fudging a bit since the flowers are premade, but I did stack and arrange them- and add some bling- to make them my own.  They're as handmade as brownies from a mix, right? LOL)

You look like you had a fantastic birthday! This is a great LO, and the colours look so fresh...and match in sooo well with the pics. The flowers are a great embellie on these pages too.
