..:: birthday selfies ::..

It's Mix It Up Monday on the Paper Issues Blog and here's my take on the challenge this month!

This photo was taken on my birthday while we were out to eat celebrating together as a family. B. is always ready for the camera!

I used lots of bits and pieces from several collections this month -- it alls started with Simple Stories New Year's collection which I did use a bit of, but mostly the colors grabbed me!  So, I got the black and white started and then I grabbed the colors that I wanted to pop off the page from multiple lines. 

Check out the other inspiration from our Design Team here, and make sure you play along!

I played along with Sketchy Saturday over on the Paper Issues blog! These photos were taken when my oldest grandson met his new baby brother! Yay!

I used Crate Paper's Cool Kid collection (I've used this several times for layouts of this little many -- and now I have two little men)! 

This is a great sketch! Check it out and play along! All the details can be found here!
