Happy Birthday to me

With being under a Stay-At-Home order for the coronavirus over my birthday, we stayed home but my hubby made me a very special birthday dinner for us to share.    We had shrimp cocktail, smoked prime rib, baked potato, fresh grilled asparagus and followed later in the evening with a chocolate cake.    So it was a very happy birthday for me.

I had printed these pictures last night because I knew I would be making a birthday layout and then this morning I checked out the newest challenges that come out mid-month and   "SKETCH N SCRAP" had the perfect Sketch #199 to use with my 3 pictures.   Below is the sketch.

Then I also had on my desk the newest challenge #493 from  "LASTING MEMORIES"  their word play challenge was TULIP  and this is what I used for those letters.

T = Teal
U = Uniball Gel Pen for my white journaling
L = Layers
I = Inking in black around my balloon heart patterned paper.
P = Patterned Papers
