Happy today

I'm sharing a page for the CSI Design Team today.  
Take a look at these delicious gelati colours.
I used a sketch from S365
It was such fun to work with.
I'd love to see you at CSI
Papers used
Prima All about me collection “All about me” Chevron and thumb prints
Making memories Noteworthy “Delaney” floral (teal spot)
Making memories Noteworthy “Delaney” Stipe (pink)
Fancy Pants Family tree “My family” (ledger print)
Studio Calico - Wooden title, typewriter and stars
Never thought I'd use vellum again!  Melissa Frances - Vellum envelope
Amy Tangerine - Remarks “Cute overload” provided the cute puffy camera
Love the quote from Kaisercraft Collectables - “Hello sunshine”
Scallops (edge of envelope)

I chose to put my journalling in the envelope and use the inspiration words, love, memory and family.  The journalling reads:-

I love this family photo which was taken on your third birthdays.  You each had your own cake, which tested your parents ingenuity because one of you chose a swimming pool cake and one a construction site cake; indicative of what you’d observed being built in your own back garden. Your big cousin had given you water pistols, so you had a wonderful time squirting everyone and everything in sight.  Happy memories. Love Granny 25 Jan 2014

  8. Such an adorable page,Helen. Love the cute photo and the combination of soft and heard angles in the design. Doesn't hurt that these are some of my fave colours either, :-)

  9. Look at that adorable photo! so much happiness, bless them all. Fab design, with so much attention for details. The woodend embelliesh and title add ao much, in some contradiction to the soft and subtle colors. Love it.

  13. Just Gorgeous Helen... Great photo, love the colours, your journaling and the little embellies...Love it!!

  14. This is beautiful Helen, so happy to see your face at Sketch365. Lovely work with the sketch

  15. The colours of this palette are perfect for this layout and that is a wonderful family photo. I think that all of the boy grandies have sooooo much of you in them. They look like a happy family. I had a good giggle at the cake story and I can see that rearing its ugly head before long. I reckon I need to hone my baking skills somewhat or find a really good and resonable cake shop ;) a fabulous layout Helen.

  16. Oh Helen this is a beaut! Love the colours and the happy feel - it's like ice cream on a page :) Personally, I also love the image that has come up on the linky entry - it makes me happy to see your lovely face smiling out at me! Thank you so much for playing along with us, Ali x

  17. Beautiful! And what a lovely photo!!

  18. I just loooove these colours! so up my alley, too bad there is never enough time for me to do the casefiles any longer. Your page is BRILLIANT Helen! just a perfect CAS layout worthy a pub. Wonderful photo too. How clever of the parents to have two different cakes! Take care, xoxo
