Happy Birthday

It's time for the mid-month sketch release at Stuck?! Sketches. This one stumped me a bit as I generally scrap larger photos, but I challenged myself to use all four areas for photos and I managed to do so with minimum difficulty. 
For all y'all who print smaller photos at home, what do you use? My printer will only print 4x6 as the smallest size. 

My Kara Rae will be 26 in a few days, and these photos are from her 3rd birthday. Where did the years go?! I used two of the Doilies cut files from JustNick under the photos and the Happy Birthday cut file from Juliana at 17turtles

I pulled the colors from her cake and used a bold background to draw the eye to the photos. 
(and the date has been added- I goofed on the year and forgot to write the correct year in before photographing)

pp and chipboard: Crate Paper
mini doilies: Amy Tangerine
enamel dots: Michael's
twine: Trendy Twine
tag, cardstock, and vellum

This is the awesome October 15th sketch:
