Birthday girl

So with the number 2 birthday coming around in the next few months I thought it might be good if I finally got around to documenting the first one! I've had this photo and papers packed in my {work in progress} folder since the April Bella Paperie retreat last year! Using such 'harsh' colours on a little girl page and also worried I wouldn't do the photo justice are probably the main reasons I've been putting it off for so long. In the end I decided to pull out the pinks in the paper too to soften the overall look and make it a little more girly girl.


I used Echo Park - Yours Truly papers and layered it all up with polka dot paper doilies from D-lish.


Lots of hand stitching too, both in the scallops and on the die cut doilies.


The chipboard words are Memory Maze ones that I got from Bella Paperie, at just 90 cents each they are a bargain! I simply misted them with black Dylusions Ink and added a rhinestone to the dots of the i's.


Just a few flowers on this page, I didn't feel it needed too much more. Some viola's and small white roses finished it off perfectly.

Thanks for stopping by
