Celebrating 52 in Chinatown

This layout, about celebrating my 52nd birthday with a food tour in San Francisco's Chinatown, is a great example of why I love challenges so much. I chose practically every element because of the Mixed Manufacturer Layout Challenge from the National Scrapbook Day event at A Cherry on Top. In this challenge, we had to make a page with items from at least ten different manufacturers. And there's a twist - you also have to use one item you can't buy at a craft store. Can you spot that item?  
If you guessed the dark orange flower, you're right! I made it to coordinate with the two flower stickers. The rest of the items are: 
  1. Bazzill - gold cardstock
  2. Scenic Route - red patterned papers
  3. Echo Park - birthday lion sticker
  4. Jillibean Soup - present and 'One Year Older' die cuts
  5. BasicGrey - large orange flower sticker
  6. PhotoPlay - small yellow flower sticker
  7. We R Memory Keepers - gold washi tape
  8. Bella Blvd - 'adventure' sticker
  9. Me and My Big Ideas - tiny 'love' sticker, 'birthday' sticker, cake sticker, 'Now' sticker
  10. American Crafts - numbers
Technically, I also used four more manufacturers. I cut the papers and homemade flower with my Fiskars trimmer and scissors. I colored the homemade flower with Ohuhu markers and I adhered everything with a Tombow tape runner. For the journaling, I used a Zig pen. 

I'm really happy with how this page came out. It has a lot of elements on it, but ultimately it is still my clean and simple style. What a fun challenge!
