Momenta Monday

Well, I hate to toot my own horn, so to speak, but today is my 37th birthday and in honor of that I declare this "The Adventures of Me Official Birthday Week!"   As such, I will posting birthday related projects all week long! 

Starting off with today's Momenta Monday project, featuring all Momenta paper goodness and a few other assorted embellies!

That Cake

So I have a favorite cake that comes from bakery in Fort Worth called The Swiss Pastry (okay, let me fact check that real quick....still checking....)  Correction:  Swiss Pastry Shop.  If you are ever in Fort Worth or a Fort Worthean who has never checked out this landmark, I urge you to make a stop.  They are famous for their Black Forest Cake, which really isn't anything like a traditional Black Forest Cake and I'm totally, TOTALLY okay with that.

And I say all that to say this...a layout honoring my favorite cake was bound to happen, as I really, really, REALLY like cake, particularly of the birthday persuasion.

I'm going through a machine stitching phase again, so lots of sewing on this page.  I used a zig zag stitch around most of the individual paper layers and left the ends of my thread intact for a kind of shabby chic look.

I'm normally not a fan of putting buttons on a layout without at least adding some sort of twine or thread, but I thought these fit and looked pretty cute as is.  I added some strips of washi tape at a couple of points on the layout to help ground the other elements.

I really like how the "Cake" epoxy sticker went so well with the foil corrugated red alphas here.

This journaling card from Cosmo Cricket really complimented the color scheme of the overall layout and gave me the perfect spot to add a few thoughts.

Some baker's twine tied at the bottom of the page finished the whole thing off.

I'm really pretty pleased with how this whole page came together and really enjoyed breaking into my Momenta supplies!

The Momenta D-Lite team now has a board on Pinterest, so please come check it out!
