Webster's Pages - Garden Gala and Life's Portrait

I was in pure heaven making this layout, surrounded by all my stash of lace and flowers and mixing and matching until I created the most adorable layout of my little girl. For this layout, i started with Webster's Pages Tea Time paper from their Garden Gala line and then cut a strip of circle patterned paper for the background from the Refreshing paper from that same line. I added a strip of mauve colored cardstock under it with rounded corners and separated with some green Prima lace ribbon. I diecut a pair of flourishes in the same mauve cardstock and added it to each side, layered with miscellaneous matching scraps. Then I topped it all off with the most amazing bouquet of flowers. I started off with a Prima leaf on each side and loaded each one with several e-Line mixed vintage flowers (love the price of those e-Line flowers) and then topped each one with a Flora Doodles Petaloo Jolly Christmas Mini Florettes (each has a cute gem in the middle) Then I made a popped up journaling oval for my title, and added a 3-D mini butterfly on it with tiny gems on it. I used American Crafts mini marks to rub in the word "My Beauty" as the title. I then cut out several elements from the Webster's Pages Pure Grace paper from the Life's Portrait line. That included the flower cluster above the ribbon and the ornate circles that I used behind the photos. I used my Martha Stewart ribbon punch on the strip between the photos, and added Prima packaging as a photo mat. Lastly, I used a tab that reads Memories from Cosmo Cricket and topped it all off with a gorgeous red butterfly from Prima.
