LOVE!!!! Scrapbook Layout!!!!

Here is a Scrapbook Layout I made as a Challenge for the Demo's online group. It was set by the very talented Makessha, and considering I don't often make Scrapbook pages, it was indeed a challenge for me..... BUT!!!! I REALLY did enjoy making it.

I used a photo I'd taken of my gorgeous little Jorja on Sunday at Daniel's Birthday Party in the park. The minute I saw the Challenge, I knew exactly this was the photo for the job. Firstly here is the Challenge Layout for you to see:-

And here is my creation:-

It's EXTREMELY hard to get a good photo of Miss Jorja at the moment, she is either too busy running around or too busy trying to get to the other side of the camera to see what photo I've taken, so I was quite proud of ME for actually getting TWO photos of her, one on the slide as she got to the bottom and one walking with Daddy... which she wouldn't actually known I was taking... but I'm still going to pretend I was clever!!! hahaha. Anyway... those who know the beautiful Jorja will also know that at the moment, we can't go anywhere without her most FAVOURITE hat... she wears it everywhere... from around the house, in the car, shopping even to bed... yes BED!!!! so I used the colours of her hat as the inspiration for the colours on the page.
Here is a shot of the page with her HAT!!!! (well I couldn't leave it out...)

I've used River Rock Textured Cardstock for the base and used Pretty in Pink as the first border, which I've done some Faux Stitching using my Piercing Mat and Needle. Then the square is Rose Red and you probably wont be able to see it in the photo but I've used the 'Flower' stamp from my Boho Background Stampset to decorate it. The circle is made with Pretty in Pink and again I've used my Boho Background set, this time the 'Circles' to decorate.
The flowers are from my Bodacious Bouquet Set and I've created the two on the left using the 'Rock and Roll' Technique using Pretty in Pink and Rose Red Ink and a Rose Red flower and Pretty in Pink Brad for the centre, the swirl is made with River Rock Ink (stamp from Bodacious Bouquet. The flower on the right is stamped in Rose Red with a Pretty in Pink and silver brad for the centre.
The title is made using my 'Big Deal Alphabet' stamp set and has been stamped in Pretty in Pink and River Rock, I've just added a Rose Red Flower and Pretty in Pink brad to highlight the 'O'. I've written my journaling on Pretty in Pink cardstock strips, which I've 'Faux Stitched'.

Sooooo.... I hope you like my little creation.
