love 28

Hi there! It's hard to believe that February is nearly over ~ time sure flies. Today I have a couple of projects to share featuring beautiful patterned papers from the Pion Design My Precious Daughter collection. First up is a layout featuring a photo of sweet Meredith that was taken at least 14 years ago when Barbie's were the center of her world! :)
~she still drank from a sippie cup!
and still had all of her baby teeth :)
I created a textured, inky background using various ColourArte products:
and embellished with a variety of blossoms from my stash and die cut foliage:

From the scraps, I made a rather clean and simple greeting card:
For layout inspiration, I joined along with the current My Scraps and More Sketch challenge:
and for the card sketch and color inspiration, I joined along with the current retrosketches sketch challenge and the color throw down color challenge:

Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

Mona, your layout is beautiful! The papers are so pretty and love the always, gorgeous details!
You card is fantastic! The distressed edges look awesome and again, love the details and awesome design!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I am curious, how do you store your layouts? Obviously, they wouldn't lay right in a scrapbook as it would be to bulky to close...but I am trying to get tips/idea's from others? Suggestions?

Love both the stunning layout and that fabulous card Mona.... of course, I'm slightly biased with all the wonderful PINK! The card only needs my address on the envelope!! hehe
