Daddy's Baby Girl

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I have been dying to play with these Sassafrass papers that I have had but there was always something else I needed to get to first.  I have several "older", meaning so 2010, papers that I LOVE and haven't used yet and I am promising myself that I will use them this year, old and all. I'm just calling it fashionable late.

Anyhoo, I snapped these photos of little Reese and her daddy. She loves to sit and rock with him and they are usually watching football or some Discovery channel program together. She's usually all snuggled up in his lap but this time she was wide awake and wiggly. It was just too cute because every time he'd change positions with his legs she would mimic him.

For this layout I used Sketch #41 from Sketchabilities.
OMG, this was a fussy cutter's paradise. Why can't I just leave well enough alone?  So many intricate little cuts around the stitching and lace and everything else.  I added as much dimension as I could with the chipboard and pop dots but the layout needed something more to complete it. I finally realized that it needed edging. I could have done what I love to do and doodled around it but I was staring at some embossing powders and I remembered a layout my friend, Audrey, recently posted on her blog and I had to try it. Instead of stamping with versa-mark, I pulled out my liquid glue and made random patterns. Then I sprinkled the olive green and walnut stain embossing powder over it and heat embossed it.  It completed the layout perfectly!

Make sure to head over to Sketchabilities and check out what the other Design Team gals did with this sketch. You might also find that there's a prize up for grabs!!!
