I've had this idea for scrapping this "first" pic of our little girl for a while now so when this month's challenge came up for Show Us Your Stuff I decided to turn my ideas into reality. It's not the style of layout I would usually do (pink, girly and frilly) but with the birth of our little girl just around the corner, I guess it's something you will see a little more of from me in the not too distant future.
The challenge was based on the theme of love and you had to include a handmade heart. I made my own chipboard heart by first drawing it on some blank chipboard and then cutting out and covering in patterned paper. I added a lacy heart border to the outside and some pearl trim to the inside. I even pulled out the sewing machine and stitched around the edge of the page.
Also thought I'd share a few close-ups of the embellishing on this one ... the photo of the whole layout doesn't do it a lot of justice.
