Photos of my darling little granddaughter, Maggie, that were taken in April 2011. I used Echo Park Summer Days collection for this layout. I used my Cameo for a lot of the cutting for this layout. The swimsuits, the sun, the title work, and the "little miss sunshine" image. The clothes line is a QK die. Swimsuits are pop-dotted. I cut the sun to fit in the corner of the layout, popped it up with pop dots and coated it with yellow stickles. The little banner tags down the side of the photos were made from scraps of paper, then attached with multi-colored brads. LOTS of doodled stitching on this layout. I generated the photo collage in Picnik (which sadly is closing down on April 19). I guess I'll have to find another free program to create my photo collages! The little miss sunshine girl is a cutting file in the Silhouette library, but I used the print and cut feature of the Cameo...cool stuff! Journaling is tucked behind the photo mat. It's difficult to tell here, but I cut some 1/4 inch strips to put at the top of the green tab. I stacked about 3 strips on the tab to keep the journaling from slipping behind the photos...and as it worked out, the pink strips I added makes it "look" like the green journaling tag is behind the big pink background...pretty cool, huh?! Journaling reads:
Maggie, you're our little ray of sunshine! You brighten up a room just by walking in. You look so precious in your little bathing suit and wearing your sister's sunglasses. You're all decked out and ready to head out to the pool. Photos April 14, 2011
Thanks so much for stopping by!
