Once Upon a Time…

…there was a little girl who brought laughter and sunshine into her family’s life.  Her mother thought she would never grow up and would stay little forever.

Am I still moaning about my Baby growing up? Yes.  ha ha!  So now I can gaze longingly at this layout and remember when….

I designed this page using the gorgeous Teresa Collins “Vintage Finds”papers and embellishments found in the new November kit that is on sale now at The Urban Scrapbook.  

I have discovered how much I LOVE working with neutral colour palettes like this.  The style is borderline Shabby Chic, which usually isn’t how I create, but I kept things fairly simple and enjoyed the result.

Here are some close-ups…

The bling here and there on the page is from the BoBunny  “Apple Cider” collection.
I layered the Bingo cards to create a title. The fabric flowers are cut from the Sizzix Tattered Flowers die.
I die cut a Sizzix clock with the card stock in the kit and then coloured it with Brass Metallic Distress Stain.
The dimensional card stock stickers in this TC collection are wonderful!

It’s a snowy day today…and the perfect time to pick up this kit from Urban and scrapbook!

    Oh two is the most adorable age. I miss that stage of just learning to talk and hearing “Mommy” for the first time…Heaven. This is so beautifully done with all the soft embellies made from fabric and lace. Just perfection.

Love this whole gorgeous Lo Kelly! those fabric flowers from the Tattered flower die cut are beautiful…I don’t know why I never think of cool ideas like that????

    Aw, look. Baby even has a flower in her hand for momma. Your layout is gorgeous. Love the lace touches and the play on time with the clock, key and bingo cards. Exquisite as always, Kelly.
