Celebrate one

I have been hoarding these "Life of the Party" papers by Basic Grey for a long time, thinking that they'd be perfect with these photos we had taken of our daughter just before her first birthday.  This week's sketch at BG offered the perfect inspiration to finally get going on this project! Here's the sketch:

I loved the horizontal line of photos and the drop-down space for journaling, and yet when my layout came together I can see that it actually looks quite a bit different from the sketch because I also added one focal point photo and therefore had to rearrange things to accommodate it.... but that's the beauty of a sketch, right?

In addition to the Life of the Party papers, I also added some stickers from the same collection as well as a yellow background piece from Out of Print and some orange background paper also, which is from Hello Luscious (I think), all by Basic Grey. My Silhouette helped me finish off the titling.
