Daughters are flowers that are forever in bloom.

Happy Friday! Today is extra special for me because it's my first post as a member of the Lily Bee design team. And we wanted to make it a fun Friday for you by doing a blog hop to introduce the new team.

This week, the design team has been mixing and matching different collections - "Persnickety", "Autumn Spice" and  "Christmas Cheer". In the spirit of carrying on with that theme, I created this layout of my youngest daughter. She definitely has 3 year old sass but she got the sweetest heart and I see her growing and blooming every day!
 
Supplies: Lily Bee Design - Persnickety Collection: ritzy 12x12 paper, huffy 12x12 paper, Index Journaling cards, Mixed Stickers, ABC Stickers; Christmas Cheer collection - Mrs. Claus 12x12 paper, ABC Stickers; Autumn Spice collection - Spice vanilla 12x12 paper, Spice clove 12x12 paper, Spice nutmeg 12x12 paper, 6x6 Tiny Tablet, Mixed Stickers, Clear Stamps; My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Hatty "Happy" Decorative Brads, Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro Adhesive. Photos by Allison Avenue Photography.

I used my CAMEO to cut the sunflowers that are sprinkled throughout the layout in the visual triangle. I also used a journaling card in place of a photo, added the "i simply enjoy you" sticker, stamped 2012 and "DOCUMENTED" from the Lily Bee stamp set and then stitched over the entire card.


 
Journaling: I opted to use a quote instead of journaling on the front. I added a journaled note on the back to let her know what I think about the little lady she is becoming.




Heather Leopard <---YOU ARE HERE and halfway through the hop!


Nicole Nowosad, Danielle Flanders and Anna-Maria Wolniak are also a part of this amazing team but are not participating in the hop today.
