I just finished creating this layout of our daughter Ashley as an infant. This was one of her large portraits from the studio that I chose to do this layout with.
Another reason for this layout, is that I was inspired by one of Gabrielle's layouts "Madame Butterfly" http://www.scrapbook.com/gallery/cache/84905/LEgabi13_1.jpg
Her layouts are so feminine, that I see some of them and feel compelled to scrap some of our daughter's pictures with her layouts in mind..
The only things different in mine from Gabrielle's layout is that I really had to improvise with my embellishments because I don't have the same scrapbooking kits as Gabrielle, however I Do have kits from the past with similar embellies in them...
I also used my sewing machine for the outside vine stitching, although it's harder to see now since most of it is covered up..Lol
*And that this layout is the Traditional with a Digital frame onto it, so that I can print it out and mount it into our photobooks.
So......Here it is, and I'm very happy with the way it turned out....Thanks Gabrielle...!! xx
