Washi Wednesday--Where's the Washi?

Welcome, welcome!  I have a GREAT little double page layout for you today, so come on in! 

If you are here for the first time, you picked the PERFECT day to drop in.  If you came from Katy's Blog, YOU are sooooo welcome here!  My fellow blogger and CTMH consultant friend nominated me for a very special Creative Blogger Blog Hop (read more about it on her blog.)  Katy, can you feel my hugs!?  Ooops, not so tight?  ;)

The idea for this one popped RIGHT into my inbox, believe it or not!  The link to this blog post over on Doodlebug Designs was JUST what I needed for a two page layout class coming up...I showed my Facebook followers just a sneak peek last week, so here is the entire thing!

BUT!!!  I sure didn't use washi, lol!  I used one of my most FAVORITE new products in the Annual Inspirations Idea Book from Close to My Heart--the Paper Fundamentals in both Whimsy and Basic Assortments.  The paper comes in a range of colors in each pack with a super pattern on one side and an embossed shiny pattern on the other...

I paired them up with the Confetti Wishes Complements and Silver Sequins for a super birthday layout!

I think the little strips of paper look just like a bunch of candles...

I will be teaching this layout and all the little tricks and tips at Scrappin' with Grace on September 27th.  Message me for more details at!  :)
