Friends With Flair Blog Hop

I have the hardest time getting a good picture of my layouts no matter the conditions outside-sunny, overcast, etc! And I don't have Photoshop, so please excuse the mediocre photo!

I love the Wishful Thinking line by Fancy Pants, so pretty and feminine. And of course, when I saw the banner paper, I knew I had to cut some out and my niece's 1st birthday was the perfect occasion for this line.

Even though I love the soft, feminine, pastel colors of this paper, I decided to grunge it up a bit with some chalk ink and Walnut ink. I used the birthday cake from Unity's July KOM and some goodies from Elle's Studio to journal on. I added some pleated crepe paper and Prima flowers to the bottom.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope to post my vintage sheet music flower tutorial tomorrow if you'd like to check it out.

Have a great weekend.
xx, nora anne
