Taylor's Baby Sister


When I first looked at this Valentine Gilly by Prairie Fairy, I was going to make a card.  But as soon as I got her coloured in, a scrapbooking page came to mind.  Even though it was past my bedtime, I ran down to my craft room to start putting it together!  I've been hoarding this Fairy Flora Patterned Paper by Prima for a couple of months.  I thought it would be perfect for this sweet layout!

As I was thinking about challenges I immediately thought of challenge at Prairie Fairy Fridays.  'For a sweetheart' was easy to follow since this layout is for my daughter's scrapbook album.  The next is Moxie Fab World's Trigger Tuesday.  My main inspiration from this week was the colour!  I love those soft coral, rose and red colours!  Last (but certainly not least) is the challenge at Simon Says Stamp - Love is in the air!  This layout is all about love!

For the details. all the edges (except white) are sponged with Stampin' Up's Cameo Coral or Old Olive ink.  I used white embroidery floss to stitch along the edge of the inner square and another line just outside of it.  Gilly is coloured with Copics (colours listed below).  To add a little more interest and detail, I cut out some flourishes with my Tim Holtz Sizzix Die Elegant Flourishes and placed them around the edges of the layout.


Here's a close-up of Gilly.  My absolute favourite part of her is her cute, little, slouchy socks!  Here are the Copics I used:
Hair:  E99, E97, Y21     Skin:  E21, E00, E000, R20         
Dress & Heart:  R29, R27, R24, R20     Socks:  YR21, E000    
Staff:  E99, E35     Wings:  R20, E000     Glasses:  R27     Freckles:  E97

Have a wonderful day!
