Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop Theme: Birthday

Hello I am Karen Farquhar and welcome to the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop this month's theme is Birthday.
A few months ago I decided to give myself the challenge to complete at least one Scrapbook page a month. Have I carried through with that challenge? No! 
So when I saw the title of this month's Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop I though well I could do a Scrapbook page. 
My granddaughter has just celebrated her first birthday WOW! time flies. So I won't get too far behind with her Scrapbook album I have created a page of her first Birthday party. (Nana brag time).

 To create the page I have used the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper from the suite of the same name featured in the 2019 Occasions catalogue. I like to keep my page layouts simple so the photograph is the hero. I have fussy cut the lollies (candies) and cupcakes from one sheet of DSP and raised them on dimensionals to use as my elements. I hand drew and cut the number 1 and have used the Well Said and Large Letters framelits dies for the title.

With some left over pieces I have created a simple coordinating card.

Thank you for visiting me. I hope today's projects have inspired you & brightened your day. Please feel free to hop through all of the stampers on the list below to see all the projects. You won't want to miss any!
