Layout - Ethan's 2nd birthday

I just want to say firstly: I am NOT a "brights" scrapper. I don't like using lots of bright colours on a 12x12, which might be why this fun birthday paper has been in my stash for so long.  However when I saw the birthday challenges at Scrap Our Stash and the sketch over at Scrap & Music I just knew they would be coming together with the bright and happy photos from the 2nd birthday party of our little mate Ethan.

Because I don't use brights as a general rule, I have a severe shortage of bright embellishments - so I made my own. The banners are Kaisercraft wooden shapes, coloured with ink and glossed with Crackle  Accents.

Layout recipe:
Card stock/paper: Surprise Party (Doodlebug Design Inc), Bazzill
Dies: Sizzix alphabet
Stickers: K & Co, Echo Park 
Banners: Kaisercraft
Inks: Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizazz, Real Red, Pacific Point, Basic Black Marker (all SU!)
Other: gold cord, Crackle Accents (Ranger)


Thanks for visiting!
