Beautiful Smile

My granddaughter is getting ready to turn 7 and as most 1st graders do, she is finding that her baby teeth are falling out. On a recent snowy morning she yanked her very loose front tooth out herself and had mom take a picture "for Grandma".  Of course I had to scrap it. I used some vintage Bella Blvd papers and my new stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday along with some adorable teeth die cuts.  I layered the "teeth" on my banner that I punched with my Stampin' Up banner punch.  I was thinking of letting that punch go in a recent fit of destashing and I am so glad now that I didn't.  I do not often add banners to my pages but that handy little punch is perfect for when I do. I used lots of purple on this page also because that is Abby's favorite color (mine too when I was growing up).  I used this sketch from PageMaps for a sketch challenge at A Cherry On Top:

I am entering this layout in the Scrap Your Stash w-a-s-h-i challenge.
W- washi tape (the vertical stripes and florals strips across the middle of the page are washi tapes)
A- alpha stickers (the white Basic Gray mini-alphas) & arrow (pointing at her tooth)
S - square (polka dot paper is 10 inches square) & stamps (used smiley face & sentiment from Technique Tuesday)
H - heart on the journaling card
I - incisors (tooth die cuts on the banner) & ink for the stamping

I am also entering this layout in Clique Kits Anything Goes challenge.

Edited 8/13/15 to add:  I am linking this page up to Paper Issues current issue -- It's All About The Face.

Today I received this emailed picture:

Her other front tooth came out!!!!  Looks like I will be scrapping a companion page to this page!!!  Can't wait to see Abby and all the other grandkids and family in 3 more weeks!

Thanks for stopping by today....Happy Valentines Day!
