Scrapbooking with Kaisercraft - Base Coat

Hi guys!
I am spending the day 'relaxing' at home, and part of that was to scrapbook!
I went through a bunch of photos, and found this pair from my nieces 1st birthday party. She's almost 2 now!
I fell in love with the Kaisercraft Base Coat collection, as soon as I saw it! I love the textured backgrounds and how easy it is to "build" a layout from them.... I started off with this textured brick background, and fussy cut the flower section, from a piece of Pink Paislee patterned paper. I then grabbed a Twiddleybitz flourish, and covered it in Heat N Stick Powder, and then a liberal amount of glitter. 
The next step for me was to decide on some embellishments to go below the photos. I chose some lace from Alacraft (this one) and then chose some flowers that have been in my stash for an absolute age! The big pink one is from Prima, and is covered in sparkly pink glitter, and the white one I've had even longer, its a shabby looking rose. It was at this point I also chose the buttons and the last flower for up near the chipboard piece, and attached them all using my hot glue gun.
The banner is from Grace Archival, and is a sticker, it is really thin paper though, so I stuck it on some spare card stock, and popped it next to the flower cluster. 
This last picture shows half my title - and the sparkly & symbol. I used my label maker, as well as some dies to create the title "Miss B & Aunty Jess"
I am entering this into two challenges, the first is the sketch from Stuck?!, which I took inspiration from, and changed it up a little bit... I tend to do that a lot with sketches, hehe
I also took inspiration from Polly!'s Easter weekend Sparkle Challenge!
