Basic Grey "Life of the Party" meets CTMH Sketch Book

Happy Monday!  CTMH released their first volume of sketch book called "Make it from your Heart".  The sketch book is reasonably priced at $7.95.  I really liked the pennant sketch and used it on my daughter's layout. 

The paper I chose was Basic Grey's "Life of the Party".  This line reminded me of years gone by when we had simple birthday parties with just cake, ice cream and a game of the tail on the donkey!  These days the parties are more elaborate with themes.  I have to admit that I often succumb to the pressure.  For Abby's 9th birthday, we took her and her friends to a Laser Zone party place.  The girls had an absolute blast!  They played Laser Tag and arcade games and ended the day with pizza and cake.

While doing this LO, I tried to incorporate some new techniques-- spray ink and washi tape.  If you notice there is a trend to randomly spray directly onto LO's.  Washi tape is cool design element.  I bought a bunch of it from Queens & Company.

All the shapes were cut using CTMH's Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.

I'm about 1/3 done with documenting Abby's 9th birthday party.  So, there will be more to come!
Thanks for stopping by, Maureen:)
