My husband's brother and his wife have the cutest little boys and recently added lil' Lily to their family. She has to be one of the prettiest babies I have seen (with the exception of my granddaughters of course...LOL) I loved this picture of Lily especially since she was wearing the headband a good friend of mine made for me to give her. I knew I wanted to create a layout that I could frame and give Aaron and Cherie as a gift when they travel down here to Florida from North Carolina in a few week for Easter. I used Simple Stories Baby Steps. I hand stitched the two kraft tags ( I really must work on my handstitching or better yet get a user friendly sewing machine). I also embellished my vinyl pink Thicker with little swiss dots....I love to embellish my embellishments to really make them mine.
I am entering this layout in the Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday challenge to use brads or eyelets. I used a couple of brads on my double tags.
I am also entering it in Burlap and Buttercups "What's Your Style?" challenge. My style is usually pretty clean and simple -- I like to have my photos take center stage. I also like to coordinate the colors of my layout to the colors in my photo.
There is plenty of time for you to enter a project in both of these challenges....I hope I have inspired you to do so and good luck.
