Hello again!!  I wanted to share a fun and COLORFUL layout I made for the Bo Bunny Sketch Challenge using Bo Bunny's Petal Pushers collection.  I don't usually create layouts with so many different colors, but I adore these papers!  I really had a lot of fun with this one.

The photos are of my baby girl three years ago.  She had just turned three and was starting school for the very first time.  This is actually a redo of a previous layout, and I found it fitting because my baby just started the first grade this year and had the exact same expression on her face... nervous yet excited!

Here is a little journaling that explains the photos.
I created the large flowers with Donna Salazar's Rose Creations Dies.  LOVE them for flower making!  The Foliage (DA0506) and the Mini Vines (DA0370) are chipboard elements made by The Dusty Attic.
The title letters were adhered with foam tape for added dimension.
The Twirly Heart (DA0455) was altered using Stickles and Crackle Accents.  You can find the tutorial for this HERE.
The scalloped circles on the left and right sides of the layout are journaling cards that coordinate with this collection.
I had so much fun creating these stitched borders.  The vertical edges were created with the Martha Stewart Cherish punch and the horizontal borders were made using the Fiskars Apron Lace punch.
More stitching and eyelet corners...

This beautiful chipboard flutterby (DA0389) was covered in Fairy Dust glitter.  I soaked the chipboard in water first and peeled apart the wings for a 3D effect.

Thanks for visiting!!  Hope to see you again soon!
