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.

M,y 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.

On to some closeups...

 I tucked a pretty white, sparkly, Prima butterfly under the flowering branch.

I liked the negative look of the vellum so I used this piece instead of the punched butterflies ~ I'll save them for another layout.

My journaling is on one of the sprayed, misted tags and tucked behind the photo.

I love the Prima flower branches.  I used some of the tendrils from this branch for my previous 'Heron' layout.  It didn't make this branch look any the worse for wear. 
I added a few brown, edged with pink, Prima leaves under and around the flowers.  I liked the colours with this paper.

I was in Unforgettable Memories today and they must have just gotten a shipment of Prima because there are loads of new flowers to pick from.  Lots of these flowering branches in different colours and lots of new flower sets, some with coordinating leaves and different sizes.  I went a little crazy so I will be scrapping with lots of pretty flowers for the next little while.
