If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you will have seen the pictures I posted last month of the most delicious lemon cake EVER! Nikolas requested a lemon cake for his birthday so a lemon cake he got! This layout is all about that cake and the birthday boy with such a request. Oh! And Cocoa Daisy stamps from the November kits!
I used a simple circle grid layout as the foundation for this layout and then set out to fill the circles with either a photo or goodies from the kit. This came about as a result of that fantastic wreath stamp from the kit. I had toyed with hand coloring it but decided in the long run that I preferred the simplicity of the puffy bird sticker alone.
See what I mean about just leaving it alone? Why ruin a good thing?! I love that Nikolas will still smile for pictures for me! He knows that if he wants certain things, I get certain things. One of those very crucial things are smiles in pictures. None of this grumpy teen nonsense he Snapchats all his friends.
Eventually, I will attach a YouTube video to this post... And you will see that I changed the title from inception to conclusion in the creating of this layout. Initially I had Best Cake. It felt like a fragment and needed more. Hence, The Best Cake Ever. Because it really was about the best cake ever! I'm not a huge baker. While I love sweets, there is no need for them hanging around the house. Nor is there much time to bake. So that this came out as well as it did was a feat in and of itself!
