My Beautiful Daughter

The Sketch I Used (from Stuck On U Sketches):

My Layout:

Close Up of my flowers and embellishments:

This layout also qualifies for the Stuck On U Sketches Challenge to Use Die-cuts : the frame behind the photo, the journaling card, the word, "beautiful" ,  and the borders (all premade die cuts from the Colorbok Flea Market Punch-out pad).
I also used: Pink Paislee Butterfly Gardens, "Butterfly Wings", a paper lace doily, a brown crystal ZVA flourish, a K&Co. "Rose" sticker, Basic Grey painted brads, pink Primas and tiny pink roses that I made with a punch and scraps for my August Kit, American Crafts Thickers chipboard letters, and a partial sheet of the Pink Paislee Botanical Gardens (the pale pink), which I distressed on the edges with my scissors.

The journaling says: " Almost 12 in this photo, you are growing up so fast, and becoming a beautiful young lady. I have noticed quite a change this year in the way you act, and an increased self-consciousness. Stay confident, you are beautiful!" I just wrote a note from my heart as a little reminder for my 12 year old, who is growing and changing so much before my eyes. Let your kids know how much you love them, they need to hear it!
