Birthday Girl... a double layout

The May Birthday Girl theme at Scrap the Girls inspired me to jump back in time and scrap some photographs from J-girl's 14th birthday.  I made a bunch of lollipop flowers from my bag of paper scraps, and teamed them up with some pre-made flowers and bright girly papers.  Click to enlarge:

My Mind's Eye My Girl - Bouquet patterned paper
Cocoa Vanilla Hello Sunshine - Sunny Spot patterned paper
Cocoa Vanilla Sugar & Spice stickers
Cocoa Vanilla Sugar & Spice - Flutter patterned paper
Cocoa Vanilla Sugar & Spice - Perfect Posies patterned paper
Cocoa Vanilla Make a Wish - Loot Bag title
Simple Stories Summer Vibes - Yellow Grid patterned paper
Crate Paper Maggie Holmes - Happy Day patterned paper
We R Memory Keepers Heart Attack - Darling patterned paper
October Afternoon Sasparilla - Pony Express patterned paper
Green Tara 4cm Petals - Pink paper flowers
Heidi Swapp Florals - Small Pink satin flower
Unbranded large hot pink satin flowers
DMC embroidery thread
Cocoa Vanilla Make a Wish - Party Mix journal card
Riley Blake Baby Pink mini ric rac

I started out with this double page sketch from Stick it Down but changed it up a bit to fit my photographs:
