Happy Birthday candles

I haven't been feeling well this week and so my scrapping has been rather slow for me.  I felt so weak and I would go into my craft room to work but I got tired so quickly.  Felt like I had huge weights all over my body.  So I finally decided today I needed to see the doctor and find out why I wasn't getting any better.  Well I have Bronchitis and a Sinus infection so the doctor started me on antibiotics.  Hopefully I will start feeling better quick.  
Anyway I did get this layout done for the 
Sketches in Thyme #148   and  Shop our Stash  Oldest Washi Tape.  
The pictures are of my grandson Micah on his second birthday.  In one he is wearing the crown he got at school and in the other he is wearing the pirate costume I got him for his birthday.  
I used the DCWV Birthday stack for the paper.  '
I punched different color candles out with a MS punch to sprinkle around the page.  
The Washi tape I used was really old tape I think one of the first ones I got that was musical notes.  
I thought it would look cute since its a tradition to sing Happy Birthday.  I had a little trouble getting it to peal at first but then it worked OK.  Guess I should quit hoarding some of this stuff.  

Here is the great sketch from Rochelle Spears at Sketches in Thyme.
