My Beautiful Daughter

Yeah!!!!!!!!  I got a layout done.  I've been struggling lately with my creativity and it's been tough.  Nothing seems to come together.  I pull out my pictures and supplies, go over in my head what I want to do and then I freeze up. Way too much stress in my life right now.  My May kit from Artful Delight has been sitting on my scrapbook table for a few weeks.  It's a gorgeous kit filled with Echo Park Graceful and Crate Paper's Pretty Party.  I worked on this layout little by little for the past week and I'm happy that I finally was able to
 finish it.
The beautiful person in the layout is my hairdresser Julina and her adorable little girl Zoey!  Besides being the best hairdresser ever, Julina is the sweetest and most loving person. 
I cut out the lacing bundle and punched some strips of paper with my Martha Stewart Traditional Eyelet punch and added them.
 The mini canvas banners by Prima were stamped using My Mind's Eye Stella Rose Gertie "Girly" stamps.
Unfortunately the Artful Delight May kit is sold out, but later this week Leeanne will debut the June kit.  I just got mine in the mail and all I can say is fabulous!  
Thanks for being so patient with me.  I've spent very little time on the computer lately.  I won't bore you all with the details, but I am going through a really rough time in my life right now.  Seems it has all caught up with me and really taken a toll on me.  I'm trying my hardest to keep myself together, but some days are hard.
Thanks for stopping by!

Debbie, you would never know with this layout, that you've been struggling with your's absolutely beautiful!! You did such an amazing job with the Graceful line and I love the layers and clusters on your page! And I just have to say, that the lace card you cut out and added the punched strips to, is a fabulous idea!! I am going to have to file that away, and try it with my collection too!
