9 Wishes Layout & Scrapbooking Sketch by Heather Leopard & Lily Bee Design's Birthday Blog Hop

Happy Tuesday everyone and Happy 4th Birthday to Lily Bee Design! I am soo excited to be celebrating this great accomplishment with Kristen and team. We'll be celebrating all week long with a new hop each day this week through Thursday and lots chances to win new Lily Bee Design prizes!

For today's hop, we tasked with creating a "celebration" layout, drawing inspiration Nicole's sketch posted to the Lily Bee blog.  I chose to scrap this Instagram photo of my daughter at her most recent birthday party!
Supplies from Lily Bee Design Sweet Shoppe Collection



I layered lots of distressed papers, vellum, stitching and label tags over each other to create the mat for the frame as well as the paper strips at the bottom.  The Chit Chat stickers were the perfect embellishment accents and tied the page together. I included a journaling tag that says "memories" from a previous Lily Bee collection, behind the photo for my journaling.


GIVEAWAY!!!
Today I'm giving away some of this & that from my Lily Bee Design stash. All I ask is that you follow my blog (but only if you like what you see here) and leave me a comment telling me what you've recently celebrated or are about to celebrate!

Okay, so I was your last stop on the hop!  It's time to head back to the Lily Bee Design blog so you can enter for a chance to win a Lily Bee prize package! If you're just starting from my blog, here's the full list of designer's participating in today's hop:



Make sure to visit the Lily Bee blog again tomorrow and Thursday for new hops with the rest of the design team and more chances to win!

Gorgeous layout...the layering and dimension is fabulous! We have had a lot of celebrations in the past few months, welcoming a new baby boy, celebrating both of our daughters' birthdays, baptism of our son, and now we are looking to celebrate the end of an extremely long renovation of our home! Ready to relax from that will be a fabulous celebration! lol. Thanks for the chance!

What a fantastic variety of colors and patterns and you did a great job providing the unifying elements of vellum and stitching to tie them all together.

My family will be getting together to celebrate my nephew's birthday but sadly I won't be able to attend :( So the next celebration for us will be Saint Patrick's Day.

February is a month of celebrations with both my hubby and I having mom's with birthdays (a day apart, no less) along with my hubby's twin brother and sister and his step-brother and step-dad! Lots of celebrating and then it'll be working all the celebrations off so that summer will not be too embarrassing...

So pretty and fun and happy :) And the cutest 9 yr old ever :)

Cynthia B. said...

Fun page! Your use of mists, layered and distressed elements, and the way you curled that string/twine as accents on your page - SO COOL!
We celebrate my daughter's bday in March. I only hope I can create a page at least half as cute as this one for my own baby girl! :)
