Natalie Jane

Little Natalie Jane, my cousin Pete's daughter, is now in kindergarten, but back when this was taken she was a chubby cheeked little cherub.  I had to scrap this picture of her with the rosiest cheeks you could possibly have :) I love the soft colors of these papers. They are perfect for baby pages without having to use papers printed with bottles and safety pins.

I love tearing and inking. Probably my number one favorite thing to do to and I don't think I ever do a page without doing this anymore.

I thought this little flower cluster turned out kind of cute. Instead of the usual paper leaves I'd usually use, I used these little glass beads in the shapes of leaves. The border is a punch that I then stuck with little half pearls to tone down the black color and make it girly enough to fit in with the pinks.

Something about this little tag just makes me so happy {and it's not because it's literally telling me to be happy}. The black paper and white ink makes it look kind of chalkboard-ish. The yellow is a fun pop of color against the more muted pastels, and the black waxed thread stands out in contrast against it. I dunno, it's just one of my favorite elements on this page and of most of the pages I've made!

I used my label punch to make this tag for Natty's name. I used a gold ink pen and dotted the edges and fussy cut the black piece and layered them with some foam tape. 

The three flowers are handmade. The fabric one actually came from a spool of ribbon withe these rosettes. Once I'd used the ribbon on a layout or two, I began cutting them out one by one and I love the added texture {and, it's hiding a hippie flower layered beneath!}. If you've read some of the past posts, you know it was my first punch and it made an appearance on more than a few layouts. The silver filigree center is a vintage button. The flower is made from two scallop punches, then snipped every other scallop and folded lengthwise.

I have another cute pic of my cousin Ellen's little girl coming soon. See you then :)
