My Busy Little Bee

I've been dying to scrap these photos I took of my busy little bee in this gorgeous littlw swim suit.  Isn't it the cutest??? These are pics from Miss Charlotte's birthday bash in May. You can see her peeking out in the background with my older daughter. The little bee just wanted to play with the buckets and the water. 

These photos were just too perfect for today's OIW (one item wonder) over at Scrapbook Circle.  I was assigned the filter flowers!  These are so cool.  They come in different shapes and sizes.

I decided to cut one in half and cut one of the halves again so that it made the shape of 2 hearts, which I then turned into bee wings. The filter flowers were originally white so I added a little yellow mist and then I outlined them with some Smooch.  I used the other half of the flower on the upper part of the layout.  To complete the layout I added some buzzing bee dashes here and there. 

On a side note, I never do monochromatic layouts but that's about to change.  I just love it!

This is absolutely precious! I love the minimal use of color, and the way you created the bee dashes shaped into a heart. Very sweet. And lastly, that swimsuit has to be the cutest thing on her! Where in the world did you get that? I love the wings on the back!!!
