Stuck?! sketch. October 1

 
This stuck sketch inspired me to use more of my Counterfeit Kit and scrap a photo of my recent birthday.
My friend, Barbara and I were born 3 days apart so we always celebrate our combined birthdays. This year we had a lovely lunch at Cronulla RSL admiring the sea view through a big glass window.
 We both turned 59.

I've used Kaiser "needle and thread" paper for my background, picking up on a vintage theme (we almost qualify!).I added some tape measure washi tape and stitching with twine under the photo.
I've used Fancy Pants stickers with suitable phrases on them.
The enamel dots are "My Minds eye"
The chipboard presents and cupcake are from Buzz and bloom. I inked them with pink to match the ricrac.
Finally, the American Crafts "poolside"  thickers are glittery and add a birthday/festive touch to the layout.
