Lasting Memories March Guest Designer - BIRTHDAY SKETCH

I am so excited to announce that I have been chosen as a Guest Designer for the month of March at the "Lasting Memories" Scrapbook Layout Challenge Blog!!!  Woo Hoo!! - this is a really FUN Challenge Blog with lots of talented Designers, and lots of FUN Challenges, and I am honored that I was chosen!!

The first challenge of the month is to use the AWESOME Sketch below - by Laura Whitaker !  AND - since it is Sandy's Birthday Month - ( she is one of the DT Members at Lasting Memories) - the theme for the Layout should be "Birthday"
Well, I realized that I didn't have many (if any) Birthday papers, so I improvised and use a great paper collection from Fancy Pants!  I've had this for a while and just LOVE the colors!  Here is my layout for your inspiration:
 These photos are from my family Birthday dinner this past June.  Instead of buying gifts ( but we usually do get each other something small anyway,) we go out to dinner at the restaurant of the Birthday person's choice.   I sat next to my crazy (younger) and WONDERFUL Brother this year at my celebration!  We took a few silly selfies until our Mom took one of us from across the table.
I LOVE my "little" Brother - I know he is always there for me if I need him - and he is so talented and a gifted craftsman - I use paper - he uses wood!!  LOVE YOU BROTHER!!  

Here are some close ups for you:
I added stickers to spell out "Happy Birthday"

I made some candles out of paper to add to the Birthday feel of this layout!

We are never too old to be Silly! - I love to add a pocket behind my photos to slide a tag into - I use the tag to journal the story of the photos and layout.

Celebrating my "double nickel" Birthday!  #thisiswhat55lookslike LOL!
