It's a photo of my downline Tracy and my upline Steph taken in November at Stampin' Up! European convention on awards night. So to make my layout I'd been a lot inspired by a chipboard letter Anthea had done on a card and she kindly showed me how she'd done it. I decided I wanted to do something similar and using the On Board Alphabet Chipboard letters was such good fun. They started off life as dull grey chipboard letters and I transformed them to coordinate with the Springtime Vintage papers:
As you can see I've also been playing with the Big Shot dies and embossing folders and of course buttons, ribbons and pearls too!

And here's Gem struggling to get both our sparklers lit at the same time!
It was the scrummiest cupcake ever - big fudge pieces on the top mmmmm, mmmmm! Thanks Jules!
