Birthday Girl.....

I have recently developed a scrappy crush on Corrie Jones.  Her work is so incredibly artistic and full of product.  Recently I pinned a layout of her's titled My Valentine that you can see here and it inspired this.....

My 3 year old studiously avoiding making eye contact with my camera.  LOL.  Where has the time gone???

When creating this I wanted to go with loads of layers, lots of detail, and whole lot of messy paint! I pulled papers that went with the colors of the balloons that are blowing away (when planning this shot I did not count on the wind which is really dumb because it is almost always windy where I live!) as well as the grey in my daughter's clothes.  Placing these on top of the black patterned paper really made them stand out, so I went with it. 

Something new to me this time around was punching hearts out of glitter tape--why had I not ever thought of this before???  They punched really easy, had adhesive already on them, and added a bit more texture to the page.
