All Grown Up

Happy Valentines Day to all!!  I enjoyed having some time today to work on this layout.  The sun has been out and we are going through a slow melt with the snow.  Unfortunately there is more snow in the forecast, Monday into Tuesday.  Makes me a little worried, since the weather people are not giving out enough information.  I think everyone is worried that a little snow, will turn out to be a lot of snow.

Here is a layout of my daughter. This was taken several years ago when she was in middle school.  It was her first dance.  I was so excited to see her dressed up!  I'm  sure you can tell in the pictures she wasn't as excited.  She was then and still is now, a "jeans" person.  I based this layout on the current sketch over at Stuck On You Sketches.

I love the paper on this layout.  It is Bo Bunny Love Bandit.  So cute and sweet.  I used the Martha Stewart traditional eyelet lace punch around the corner set, and  lots and lots of Tsukineko chalk ink. The title is cut using Quickutz Marisa alphabet.
The cute little picket fence and butterflies at bought from an etsy shop over at  Check out her store she has a lot of cute embellishments for sale.
I used the Cricut cartridge A Child's Year to cut out the little girl.  I added some ribbon around her waist and some lace behind the cut outs.
The little roses around the fence are new by Prima!  Love then, so sweet and dainty! The little sign, Sweet Little One is by My Mind's Eye.

I totally agree with everything Sandi said!
I just love your details here..the fence, flowers, butterflies, that little birdhouse and birdie, the ribbon sash on the girls dress. Everything is just sweet as can be!
LOVE it!
