Creative Scrappers - Birthday Bash

Here are the different ways you can play along –
1. Like Creative Scrappers on Facebook
2. Comment on our blog or on Facebook page
3. Help spread the news

Here is the sketch I chose to work with, created by Jenny Evans.
I just love Jenny's sketches, and knew I had a set of photos from a recent "kiddie" photo shoot that I could use.  I also loved that, as much as the design was already within my comfort zone there were a few elements that I wouldn't normally be drawn to in my own designing, like the triangles down down the page, in addition to the chevrons going across the page, I would have thought to put both on the same page.
Here is what I came up with:
Théa made the sweetest little Olaf on the last nice warm-weather winter day we had.  I love that she even got his mouth in the form of him singing.  He looked so cute and inviting in the middle of our cul-de-sac. 
I created the snowflake frame using my Silhouette
I've been hoarding that pink chevron flair button for just over a year now.
Hidden journaling once again, I'm pretty predictable that way, I just love to tell the story though, and the design doesn't always allow for it to be out in the open, it's what happens when you like embellishments too much, lol.
There is so much inspiration waiting for you along with way, with 11 more brand new layouts just for the party.  Here is the blog hop order:
