Sweet By and By

Hello! I'm here with another layout of my great niece. Isn’t she just the sweetest?!

To the left of the photo, you see the Japanese Garden Lace Oval layered with the Stackers Nesting Oval - Scallop. A collection of beautiful Lace Corners have been added to the store. Have you seen them?! They are absolutely gorgeous and very versatile! Here I dressed up my scallop oval by adding one from the Lace Corner Deco C set to the top and bottom. I just adore the loops and swirls of the little doily from the center of Dutch Scallop Square Frame, but rather than use it in one area, I cut it into quarters and strategically tucked them into the layers.

To create my flower, I cut 4 layers from Stacker Flower #3. I lightly brushed the edges of the petals with Glimmer Mist, then curled and folded each petal for a more life-like feel. I adhered the layers staggering the petals as I went. One layer of Cuties #1 was assembled for the center of my flower. Once complete, I added leaves from Stacker Flower #1 and foliage from Olive Branches atop the Fanciful Flourish. I also added a Miniature Rose and leaf from Small Dimensional Leaves #2.

To the right of the photo I have placed a couple more pieces of the doily from Dutch Scallop Square Frame. Lace Light Deco Border dresses up the edges of the top layer, while 2 pieces of Anastasia Border are placed back to back down the center of the top layer. With such an adorable little face, I just had to add Two of Hearts, using the larger heart as the base for my chipboard sentiment. I tucked a few leaves from the Dimension Small leaves #2 set and adorned with one of my favorites dies…Exotic Butterfly Mini. The Border Carnivale boldly lies across the bottom of the layout defining the feel of the entire layout.

I hope you have enjoyed today's creation!
