Getting Scrappy Challenge - Love of Chocolate!

**If you are here for the Digi Darla Blog Hop please CLICK HERE!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday! It's that time again when Getting Scrappy has a new challenge! And since it is February now, go check out who our top 3 were who and our winner was for January!!

This week our challenge is:
Love of Chocolate

For my DT inspiration I created a layout of my daughter's first birthday, when she first dug into her cake!
I chose my papers based on the colors in the cake and her headband. (Her theme was ladybugs, so she was dressed in her ladybug costume from Halloween for her party) All papers used are Recollections except the brown for the banner.

The sprinkle design I printed onto white cardstock from Wikipedia.. (who knew!?) :) LOL I didn't know they had pictures like this that you could print, but it worked out PERFECT for me! The scalloped circle and tag are cut from the Lacy Labels cartridge and my title is from Simply Sweet, welded in CCR. The cupcakes are Recollections.

The banner I made is a bunch of triangles cut from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge out of paper from DCWV The Sweet Matstack. The solid brown flags say CHOCOLATE and every other one is just a brown one with swirls and designs. I though it went perfect with my layout about chocolate! :) I then strung them all together with Cappuchino twine from the twinery.

My scalloped circles were cut from Lacy Labels to match my title and then for my lines, get this, I used a piece of scrap paper and dipped it in ink and then made my lines! I seen it somewhere a long time ago, it's like makeshift stamping! lol I also used a REAL stamp by Joy's Life Stamps that says Happy Cake Day from the Yummy puns set. Her stamps are so amazing, she has soooo many cute sayings and fonts, I will be using more for sure! :)

I used an archived sketch by pagemaps for my layout today:
