Cool Baby!


Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great week. Mine is fairly busy but a LOT better than last week (thank goodness!).  Lol!  I was joking with a friend today saying that as my youngest are finishing school this year, I think I'm going to take a Gap Year next year!! :):)
I'm actually here to share my take on the latest Stuck?! Sketch with you. Here is the sketch.
And here is my take on it.  I've used a pic of my friend's little girl when she was 15 months old. :)  The beautiful papers are from the MME 'The Sweetest Thing - Honey' collection.  I was lucky to receive these as part of my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store this month. 
For some reason I found the layout a little bit difficult to photograph. :O
A close up showing off those beautiful Mulberry Paper Roses. They are now available at The Scrapbook Store.  The pearl flourish is from Kaisercraft and the leaves were punched out using my Martha Stewart 'Rose Leaf' punch.
I'm meeting with some scrappy friends on Saturday to get our montly fix. :)  Will hopefully have something to show after the weekend.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog.  I appreciate all the lovely comments you leave behind.
Have a great weekend!
Until next time.
