Hi everyone!  This a layout I made using a photo of my daughter when she was two years old.  That seems like ages ago!  I used Bo Bunny's Country Garden Collection... how gorgeous are these papers?!
I used a sketch by Mistra Hoolahan that was used for the October Dusty Attic challenge.
 Look at these lovely Green Tara flowers!  The large flower is a Damask fabric & organza flower.
The adorable blue flower is a 4cm Heirloom.  I like this smaller size!
 For the title I used alpha stickers and chipboard letters and adhered them to a die cut banner.
These are lovely gardenias and roses.  You can see a piece of cut lace peeking out from behind the flowers.
 To create this circle border, I hand-stitched the lace to the edge of the cut circle and then snipped in between each section of the lace.  All of the hand- stitching on this layout was done by hand.  Some people think I'm nuts but I find the stitching to be therapeutic.  :o)

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
Much love & hugs...
xoxo
