Hello Queen & Co friends, Kim here.
 
Welcome to the Queen & Company blog. Today I am excited to share my latest layout with you. Inspired by the FABULOUS Pretty Presents kit, I decided to capture the happy moment of my little friend Callan getting ready to blow the candles out on her birthday cake. These dies, papers & toppers were tailor made for this page.
 
Hip-hip Hooray layout by Kim Watson
 
 
​Using my Silhouette Cameo, I die-cut a pie chart, reason being is I wanted to use a pretty variety of patterned papers from the Pretty Presents 6x6 paper pad. The pie chart allowed me to use eight different pattern papers...the perfect way to create a colorful mat for my photo. 
 
 
The sweet gift dies made the perfect accents for this page. To make them less busy on an already busy page, I made sure to make them mono tone in color: Pink, yellow, orange & green. To create the 'open me tag' I trimmed down one of the larger stamps. 
 
 
The title is made up of a combination of three of the stamps that came in the Pretty Presents kit. By stamping them in different colors onto flag shapes, then attaching them to a striped drinking straw, I not only made a fun unique title but also a festive page accent.
 
Patterned paper circles folded in half and placed along the top of the page with turquoise bakers twine, not onto adds a ceiling to the page but really gives one the feeling of a celebration!
 
 
To make the page extra special I selected a mixture of pretty bling bits to co-ordinate with the patterned papers in each segment. The result is super fun, colorful & festive....Callan can't wait to have her page, in a frame, in her bedroom. 
 
If you like cut files, I have a gift for you today. 
 
Enjoy, for your personal use.  Go to our website HERE to download this fabulous FREE cut file!
 
I​ am so glad you stopped by, I am so happy to be given the opportunity to inspire you.

Love the page. The colors are so lively, just what you’d want for a celebration page.
