Happy happy Birthday and trying something new

Today I saw that  Shop Our Stash was having an Opposite's Day Challenge.  You are asked to 
make something that's opposite your usual style
As a lot of you my style varies  I like simple and clean with a lot of pictures but I have been working on layers and textures and one picture on a page, etc.  
So I wasn't sure what I would do but then I remember a sketch I saw on Let's Capture Our Memories.  When I saw it I thought hmmmm I've never done anything like this and wasn't sure I would tackle it.  So I thought I would give it a try.  My photos are almost always 4 x 6 or 2 x 3 rectangles or maybe squares once in awhile.  
I hunted through pictures to find something that would work to punch out with a hole punch and found this cute stack of birthday paper.  
I added some letters for the title and made smaller punched circles of cupcakes.  
I cut out the 3 to represent Brittanys third birthday.  
Another think I did which was new is I see people with circles around there pictures to highlight one and I'm not sure how they do it but I did mine with Stickles.  
Now that I have tried it I really like this layout and method of 
punching out pics and would try it again.  

This is the sketch I used from Let's Capture Our Memories  Sketch 121 
Going to keep this sketch and try it again.
