Pretty in Pink

The May challenge at Scrap It Girl is to “Mother or Mother Nature”. I opted to show the beautiful relationship between my cousin and her baby.mom_me

My cousin is constantly taking photos of Layla in all sorts of adorable outfits and posting them on Facebook for me to enjoy. I keep threatening to steal the photos so I can do a scrapbook page. When she posted photos taken by Danielle Franklin, I could not hold back any longer.

Of course, this time I got permission, from both the photographer and my cousin, to reprint the photos and to share them with you …051

I knew I wanted the photos to really shine and I wanted to play up the fabrics and textures in Layla’s outfit. So, I opted for a sheet of pink cardstock and added some elegant trims to the top and bottom.

Some of the items I wanted to use, like this lace from Prima, were too white. To tone down the color a bit, I used a bit of Antique Linen Distress Ink.

On the Maya Road flower (lace with the pearl in the middle), I used Ranger Perfect Pearls Mists to alter the color a bit.

Then I just layered a variety of trims, flowers, gems and even some of my chicken’s feathers to the page.

The title is made with gold Thickers.

So that is my project for Scrap It Girl for May … Now it is your turn. Create a project based on the mother theme and post it at Scrap It Girl before the end of May. You could win some fabulous prizes!!
