Here's another hybrid layout about my sweet Ellie-pie! I love this picture of her. For some reason the look in her eyes gets me every time. *sigh* Must be a mom thing.
For this one I added the frame and empty journaling block (both freebie downloads) to the photo before printing. Then I went back and added the journaling in my own handwriting. The journaling is just the words to the song You Are My Sunshine. I love that it worked out just perfectly for the words I LOVE YOU to go in the big box!
The papers came from my Sweet Pea Scraps December kit (can you tell I'm a couple months behind in my playing??). The patterned paper, stamps, and jewels are Iron Orchid Designs. And this layout is for challenges on both the SPS and IOD blogs, too!
The butterflies and flowers were stamped on the patterned paper, then cut out and adhered to the layout. The jewels were cut apart, too, and the circles were stretched out to make swirls around the butterflies. There's a lot of stamping on this page, and I have to say that I am LOVING my new Build-A-Frame stamp set. I got it because I liked the corners and the butterfly, but I like how seamlessly you can make a whole frame, too! Love it...
