It's a celebration...

This week at Lasting Memories, we have the fun theme of Let's Celebrate ~ scrap a layout about any celebration.  Because it's such a universal theme, we're hoping for lots of entries! Birthdays, Christmas, festivals, weddings, anniversaries, New Year... 

I've started a new album for our trip to Sydney last month, where we attended a 90th birthday party, so I'd like to share this layout:

I created my layout using sketch #122 at Sketchabilities.  I love Karan's sketches, and the single photo ones are always so versatile.  I'm also submitting at Studio Challenges, where the current theme is to use buttons.  I used some fun layered felt flowers with wooden button centres:

My other favourite part is the layering, and I love how the title just blended in, with a little bit of DM to add dimension:

Other materials:
My Memories Chevrons - Aqua patterned paper
Creative Imaginations Narratives - Honeydew patterned paper
Glitz Designs Beautiful Dreamer - Polka patterned paper
My Minds Eye Everyday Tango - Lime Twist diecut alphabets
Plaid Dimensional Magic glaze
Kaisercraft Rhinestones - Turquoise
Portacraft Floral Stack felt flowers
