Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge - November Sketch

Good Morning Crafters,
Today I have a quick post to show you a layout I just finished of my son when he was a baby. What a little angel. This bassinet was used by my older sister for her son and Mitchell was borrowing it while we were at Grandma's house. I found the sketch on this fun scrap challenge blog called 'Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge'. Here is their great sketch for November. You should drop by and join in!

I used a lot of Prima paper and flowers for this layout - so pretty.
I used a simple white dollie to frame the photo and dabbed on peach, aqua, and pink and then added white liquid pearl. I layered the dollie with eyelet lace and a sprinkling of clear glass beads - some I glued to the photo.

I made the background with this beautiful music stamp, using versamark ink and clear embossing powder. I then distressed the area with a teal/green colour ink.

These little white birds I made by tracing the birds from the patterned paper onto cardboard. I then added a thick layer of gesso and set in various white beads and white button. I loved how they turned out!
This pink flower I made using pink lace and pink velvet ribbon glued onto a circle of cardstock.

This page was tons of work but was really fun to complete. I hope you enjoy taking a look at all the details.
Happy crafting!
