Little Miss E

Hello there. Finally, a bit of nomalcy. With the New Year and Chinese New Year so close together and lots of things happening in between, we haven't really had many Thursday crop sessions at my place, so it was lovely to have the ladies over today to crop, chat and eat. I really missed the camaraderie, bouncing ideas of each other and of course completing a layout or project.

Today, I decided was a flower day, so out came the flower stash to do this layout of my cousin in-law's baby girl. She is the cutest baby and I must admit, I go to their place as often as I can to get in my cuddles and new baby smell.

This layout is based on the sketch from My Creative Sketches February sketch challenge.

 The papers are actually Valentine's themed but they are pastel enough for a baby layout. I always love a wood grain paper for that rustic look and the printed flower swag on the top is so pretty. Isn't little Miss E the cutest baby. She looks so sweet with her hat and those big eyes - just melted.
 Lots of fussy cutting and layering of flowers and paper accents. I added a key for an extra accent.
 For the background, I stenciled in a damask pattern and also used my favourite script stamp randomly around the page for added interest. I added a pink ribbon bow and also hung a metal love heart from the bow. The metal heart was more shiny silver in colour and I broke out my long neglected alcohol inks to give it an aged look. Lots of flowers to set off the top right accent.
 A small accent corner on the top left of the photo, mainly to cover some glue spots.
A couple of small word stickers to balance off the bottom of the page.
