A birthday page

Recently I won this lovely package from Jennifer
Most of the goodies in it are Basic Grey 'Mint Julep'......so while it was all in front of me....I thought I'd treat it like a kit......and make a page using it.
I made a collage in Picmonkey of some of the photos taken at my birthday 'pizza evening'. 
I used a quadrant of patterned papers......a few layered pieces.....no plain card at all on this layout....a few of the buttons and chipboard embellishments......and the 'birthday cakes' letters for the title were the only addition to the 'kit' ....not quite sure how I ended up with 2 birthday cakes.....but very nice nonetheless!!
I will add some journaling......but still thinking about exactly what.

Two cakes are worthy of a scrap page! Your collage sits really well within the layering Jacky - great papers too ... actually, you always seem to have a great stash of pretty paper!

Happy Birthday :)

I like the papers you used, they remind me of the fabrics my mother in law was using in Christopher & Ashley's wedding quilt.
