Here Fishie, Fishie! (A Birthday At The Aquarium)

When I came across this sketch on the Basic Grey blog, I knew I would end up using it. I loved the photo cluster and the rounded corners so I saved it for later use.

I finally got around to scrapping a page that was inspired by the sketch. I didn't copy the design exactly but you can see that the basic lines are the same. I flipped the scallop upside down and changed the photo sizes a bit. The photos felt like they were floating without something behind them, so I fussy cut some of the hexagon paper from my October 2012 Warm kit from The Sampler kit club.

The title was something that Jordan kept saying during her birthday trip to the aquarium and I just had to use it. I changed the color of the light pink foam Thickers to a deeper pink to mimic the color of the chipboard roses.

I cut one of the ribbon flowers off of the trim piece and tucked it into a cluster with the chipboard. You can also see that I used some of the stickers from the transparent Hambly set included in the kit. The sparkly silver ribbon came from the fantastic Hydrangea Hippo Etsy Store.

I love everything about this. The colors and the background make this so fun and unexpected. Psst, if I lived there I'd want to go to the Aquarium for my birthday too.
