Nina's 2nd Birthday

Since Nina just turned 3, I thought it would be good to scrapbook a few pictures from last years birthday. I have not been scrapbooking much over the past year except I finished Nina's 1st year. I'm determined to do better!
I used the April sketch from C'est Magnifique to get me going on this layout. I used papers and stickers from Echo Park A Walk in the Park. The ribbon on top is by May Arts Diagonal Sripes Pink Ribbon. I love this ribbon!!! I used the Martha Stewart butterfly punch and a cheap dollar butterfly punch (the tiny one). I also used up some of my Making Memories teal mini staples.
It makes me so happy to use my stuff and make a pretty page! Thanks for stopping by and looking!
