White with 1 - June

As soon as I saw this months criteria I just knew exactly which photo I wanted to scrap .... and I hadn't even taken it yet!!! I had this gorgeous ladybug outfit for Ellah and I just knew a picture of her in it would suit the theme to a "T".

White + Red + Polka Dots

I began by masking and misting the background using food colouring and water ..... even my collection of 32 colours doesn't cover it all ... I had no red! :(
The spotty paper is Lillybee and the title is red core cs, embossed and lightly sanded.

I added some doodling to highlight the misting and finished off with a scattering of some of my fave embellies;

- Nellie G Designs buttons
- Handmade by Suzanne washi tape

(which I no longer own since a certain child decided that he had to wrap the entire roll round the leg of the table to stop it falling down ... and no, there was nothing wrong with the table!!)

Oooh and the ladybug ribbon came in a kit from Purple Pumpkin.
