My friend Whitney took these beautiful shots of me and my new girly while we were in the hospital- on my 30th birthday! I couldn't wait to scrap them and my very special birthday gift. :)

I used the new (and sold out) "The 31st Kit"- and even though it's mostly Halloween themed product, I was able to incorporate it very nicely into this girly-girl birthday layout.

(I did add a piece of October Afternoon paper from the Five Foot Two kit, along with these fabulous labels .. and for what it's worth, the labels are on sale for $2.16!)

I loved that the Making Memories word stickers had more than just "spooky" words- perfect for my layout!
I've been on a kick lately of punching different sized, randomly placed holes into my scalloped borders. I think it adds a fun touch, especially when you layer something with color peeking through underneath.

Next blog post: the story of Ariana's birth and all those exciting details!
