I took the photos in February, but I wasn't immediately sure how I would scrapbook them. Finally, inspiration came to me in the form of a sketch from Once Upon A Sketch and a mood board from Scrap around the World. Here is the sketch...

In playing along with Scrap Around The World, I used the mood board in a number of ways. First of all, I absolutely loved the overall color combo of red, pink, yellow, aqua/mint, black, and white, so all those colors appear on my page.

You gotta love the cute ribbon bows and the shiny elements in the inspo board, right? I also used ribbons bows on my layout, plus I added some shine to my page by using rhinestones and paper clips.
I liked the multi-colored letters in the mood board's word art, so I made sure to use multi-colored letter stickers in my title work.
The repeated round shapes of the balloons on the mood board inspired me to also repeat a circle motif. In my case, I accomplished this by using round label stickers.
The way that the gift boxes in the mood board were stacked, so that each just barely peeked out from the one above it, appealed to me. I mimicked this look with my layered patterned papers.
And there we have it--a page that captures the ups and downs of a typical week in my life. I enjoyed making it, and I hope you liked seeing it. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
