"Time to Celebrate" Lasting Memories Challenge- First Birthday

Who doesn't like to celebrate no matter what the occasion?  Well this week it is time for the "Let's Celebrate" Challenge at Lasting Memories.  I was excited for this challenge as I have a ton of birthday pictures from November  when my granddaughter Kenzie turned 1 and in January when my oldest granddaughter turned 2.  I choose these pictures of Kenzie eating her first cake on the left and on the right having her first Pazookie(giant cookie) at BJ's with mom and dad. 
I used the February sketch from DCWV for the Stackaholic Challenge and 
DCWV Celebration Paper.  The rosettes were made with the Tim Holtz Rosette die cuts.  I also punched designs from the DCWV paper with a one inch punch and glued into flattened bottle caps. 
The cupcake is from Sweet Treats page 28.  The icing is embossed with Divine Swirl and the heart is glitter paper.  I used birthday stickers from my stash for the words.

I hope you will join us for the  Lasting Memories Challenge this week and create a Celebration layout of your own.  Then link to the challenge before Saturday March 3rd.  
This is the sketch for this week but remember you do not have to use the sketch for the challenge.  You must use the theme "Let's Celebrate" to enter the challenge.
