the loudest and the highest

This page is about a funny girl and a surprise concert. :) 
This layout started out with a white cardstock background with gesso and some old book pages partially adhered. Then I used a swiss dot stencil from My Favorite Things to mist some pink on the upper middle portion of the page.

I cut a doily heart out of vellum using my doily heart cut file, and backed it with another heart cut out, and then covered in chunky gold glitter. I tucked a pink PL card behind the photo and hearts, because it needed just a bit of colour back there! 

I raided my wood veneer star stash for this page. ;) 
The pink glitter Thickers are my fave.. and the tiny pink letter stickers are ancient ones from Making Memories, that I am slowly running out of. Miss that company. :(
I broke out my handy-dandy date stamp and made a dated banner.. which served double purpose as it also covered up the sentiment printed on the wood veneer hot air balloon!

For this cluster of banners I used two banners that I made (the book page stars and the ombre hearts), two new, unopened banners that also have map prints on them (Calvinball points), and a super fun bit of aqua pom pom trim. :)
