Ready for a little eye candy?
Designer Steffanie Seiler 
created the amazing layout below to share with you 
inspired by this month's sketch using 
 Fancy Pants "Joy Parade" Page Kit 
one of four kits included in the 
combined with the 

"Celebrating Together"
"The balloons in this FOTM kit from Fancy Pants made me immediately think birthday. Luckily, I just happened to have some recent birthday photos on hand! 
I took the sketch and rotated it 90 degrees but kept the photo orientation horizontal. This meant I had to make some adjustments to photo and paper sizes but the inspiration of the sketch is still there. Journaling for this page moved to the tags---the small one at the top and then a larger one tucked behind the middle photo. These were both included in my kit. The flair and vinyl stickers (also in my kit) were the perfect accompaniment to my photos. I love how this one came together!"

Steffanie added the following items from her personal stash:
sticker alphas, twine, eyelets

Why not join us this month and link up your take on the sketch.
We would love to see your creations!

Have a great week and return tomorrow for the reveal of our December challenge winners!
