Step 1: Use a piece of the color splattered patterned paper as your base for your layout.
Step 2: Using your 12-inch Straight Trimmer, cut the diamond patterned paper to measure 8″ x 8″. Using your Paper Tearing Tool (or you can do this free-handed), tear about a 1/2″ from the left-side of the paper and adhere rectangle centered, approximately 1/4″ from the left-side of the edge. Cut a strip from the pink patterned paper to measure 9-3/4″ x 2″. Tear about 1/4″ of the bottom using your Paper Tearing Tool or feel free to do this free-handed. Adhere strip below square patterned paper, leaving a 1/2″ space from the bottom of the base.
Step 3: Cut the pink patterned paper to measure 4-1/2″ x 6-1/4″. Use this rectangle to mat one 4″ x 6” photo and adhere it as shown on the layout.
Step 4: To complete the layout, adhere Happy Birthday Embellishments and stickers as shown, using a few Foam Squares to make the hearts to add dimension to the balloons.
Although birthday parties are full of presents, the greatest gifts are always the memories that are made throughout the day.

I like the use of this small scale, paint splattered paper as the background. It really allows the focus to remain on the photograph while the embellishments bring out the various colors in the photograph. Nicely done.
