80th Birthday Party

Hello and happy Thursday!
We celebrated my Mom's 80th birthday last August with a barbeque in her backyard. I am finally getting around to scrapping a few photos from it.
I used the January 15th sketch at Stuck?! along with my stash- mostly JilliBean Soup with a few other things thrown in, including some October Afternoon. I used ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever.

As usual, I used white cardstock and created a background using watercolor. I just love the look of it!
I used 2 different alphas, fussy cut numbers and rub-ons for my title. I also added in some stickers:

I fussy cut the brown scalloped border from one of the papers and also used bits and pieces of papers for the rest of the layers. I added some stitching as well:

This rub-on has been in my stash forever and it felt good to finally use it!

Here is Laura's fun sketch:
