Crate Paper Shine - Party Hat by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

Christmas is nearly upon us, I hope you are all organised at this stage and can relax and enjoy the festivities. 
Today I am sharing another layout created with the amazing Crate Paper Shine Collection. I am really loving this collection for birthday layouts, though it has so many fun colours it could be used for anything. 

Party Hat

Our pet Harry recently turned 2 and I decided to attempt to pop a hat on him to celebrate. This Thomas the Tank Engine Hat was the only one I could find, it's been a few years since the kids have worn party hats! As you can see, he wasn't too impressed - I was just happy he didn't try to eat it :)

The pinks and blues worked perfectly here and I've added some yellow which is always happy! These colours really pop off the Kraft cardstock base, to which I've added a few splotches of Dylusions Ink spray. 
Some triangles in sparkly gold to co-ordinate with the triangular party hat, then some round elements, the number 2 to represent his age and some self adhesive brads & enamel dots. 

This cute tag is from the ephemera pack, I've stolen the twine off a clothing tag!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you've been inspired with this gorgeous collection. 

Wishing you a safe and Merry Christmas
