So Cute

Hi there,
It's cold out and I had no where that I had to be, so I stayed inside and scrapped!  
Put a fix-it-and-forget-it meal in the crock pot and smelled the wonderful smells all day while
I created in my craft room with the music kinda loud!  :)

Here's one of my layouts that was submitted at Sketches With Color
for their Sketch Challenge #1.  Create a layout using pink, black and white.

Here's the sketch I had to work with:

And here's what I created:
This is a photo of my dear, sweet nieces when they were 2 1/2 and 6 years of age, back in 2003. 
Such cuties!  :)

Supplies used:
Paper: Colorbok
Die Cut Paper: Colorbok
Folded Pink Ribbon: Webster's Pages
Pink Satin Cording
Sheer White Ribbon
Gems: Forever in Time
Pearl Stick Pins
Pink & White Rick Rack
Font: Cricut Stamped
Larger folded flowers: Made from larger flower petals

Appropriate title for my cutie nieces!
Sheer ribbon was used under the white and pink ribbons.

For this grouping, a ribbon was folded in half with strips of pink and white rick rack
layered on top of it.  For the flower center I knotted satin cording several times and adhered
the loose ends under before adding it to the flower.

A better look at the layered ribbons. 

These cute little flowers came from a purchased bouquet.  Aren't they the sweetest?
I added the gems to the centers of each one of them!

Black cardstock mats the photo.  I used two strands of sating cording twisted around
to create a border around three side of the photo.  
The large flowers are actually petals from a rather large flower.  I simply cut the petals off
and adhered the folded ends over each other.
Two pearl stick pins were added under the flowers.

I used a corner rounder for the top of the photo and
matting.  This photo shows a glimpse of the satin cording under the tiny flowers.
Love the die cut background paper from Colorbok!  So pretty!

Here's a closer look at the cording and cute little flowers surrounding the photo.

Two more of the "petal" flowers were added on the upper corner of the photo with 
a bow added, which conveniently covered the ends of the flowers.

Have a wonderful day!
Thanks for stopping by!
