a Princess is born.

I loved this Karen Foster patterned paper as soon as I saw it. It is so pretty and girly. I didn't want to cover up too much of it so I layered everything under and around my one photo.

This photo is from 1998. The day we bought our baby girl home. Her two brothers were so thrilled and happy to show her off to their friend; that little cutie sitting between them.

My, how time flies. Those two little boys are graduating this year. And one of those handsome dudes gets to take that little cutie, sitting between them, to the prom. She is still as cute as she was way back in 1998.
My layers under the photo include a Jenni Bowlin bingo card, two pieces of packaging from Prima's flowers, a couple of sprayed and misted tags (one I've journaled on), some cheese cloth, a MLYB journal card and some corrugated cardstock. On the photo I've placed a piece of vellum with 3 butterflies punched out of it, and some word stickers.

My Dad took this beautiful picture of the Heron. 

I used My Little Yellow Bicycle's papers, and chipboard bits and pieces.
The red paper is leftover BoBunny from the Oriental 'Serenity' line.

I love the mushroom.  It's Prima as are the little flowers.

The bling is Zsa.

I found this old photo of my brother and I, when we were kids. I hope my children are having as great a childhood as I did.

Technology was pretty primitive(if it even existed) when I was growing up so we spent most of our days out in the yard. We had a huge back yard at 30 Newhaven Terrace. Dad built us a metal jungle gym to climb on, a flying fox to fly down, a swing (from a tree branch, not a swing set) and we had a mud pit full of Tonka's. After I did this layout I 'google mapped' our old house.There are now 2 more homes in our old backyard and very little 'yard'. Progress.

I used BoBunny's Serenity line for this layout. It's Oriental themed, but perfect for many different photos. I love the turquoise. The corner piece is cut from one of the patterned papers I had left over from my last layout.
I used a piece of Bazzill dotty cardstock in fawn. I sprayed my favourite leaf mask with gold glimmer mist. Then I sprayed a diecut alpha piece with green mist. I stamped a lattice design randomly, around the edges.

My Mum wrote on the back of the photo so I used photo corners instead of glue to attach it to the matte.

The tissue paper is 7Gypsies and the doilie is from My Little Yellow Bicycle. All came from Unforgettable Memories.
