  3. Add the Patterned Paper border trim 1/2" from the top of the Crystal Blue Card Stock.
  4. Adhere layer layer E on top of layer D and then on top of layer C 2" below the top of the page.
  5.  Cut (2) 13" pieces of the Thistle Diagonal Striped Ribbon and adhere to the bottom of page one 1 1/2" inch apart.
  6. Add layer F to the right side of layer E slightly slanted to the right as pictured on the sample.
  7. Stamp the "Enjoy The Moment" Banner using Thistle Ink Pad on a White Daisy cardstock and fuzzy cut.  Adhere to the top left corner of the layout using 3D foam tape or foam squares.
  8. Stamp the "Date" label using Pear Ink Pad on a White Daisy cardstock and fuzzy cut.  Adhere above layer F using 3D foam tape or foam squares.
  9. Stamp the square image in Honey, the triangle in Cotton Candy and the circle image using the Crystal Blue Ink Pad.  Fuzzy cut and adhere on top of the 1 3/4" circles.  To give the shapes some dimension, color the shapes with the Clear Wink of Stella Brush marker and add liquid glass.  Let this dry before adhering on top of the Thistle Diagonal Striped Ribbon. Use the journaling pen to draw in the string below the circles.
  10. Add the "Make A Wish" Title using the letters from the Confetti Wishes Complements.

  7. Stamp the "That Happened" label using Crystal Blue Ink and "Full of Goodness" label using Honey Ink.  Add Wink of Stella and Liquid Crystal if desired and adhere on the page layout using foam squares.
I recommend using CTMH Liquid Glass or Bonding Memories glue pen to adhere the layers and 3-D Foam tape to give the accent dimensions. Feel free to add your own touch to this elegant scrapbook layout.
