Anything Goes - Challenge #2

Here is my design for the second challenge on the Anything Goes challenge blog.

This week the theme is 'Pearls and Lace' and the colours are 'pink and cream'

I have done another scrapbook layout as it's my first love, and I don't do enough scrapbooking outside of the Craft Den classes so it's a good opportunity to fit some more in and to justify it - 'it's my design team work' ,lol!

I have made a LO of my lovely Emma, sitting in her 'Bumbo'. It's a kind of baby seat that you can plonk them in from about 6 months and it supports them and more importantly... they can't go anywhere, lol!

Bo Bunny double dot cardstock
K & Co Madelaine papers
Colour my World scalloped edge template
Martha Stewart scallop dot punch
Piece of vintage lace
pearly buttons
Viva cream pearl pen
Zva pink pearl bling swirl
cream corrugated card
pink embroidery thread

I used the template and the MS punch to create the bottom pink border from the Madelaine range of papers and overlaid the wide lace border. I got this from an antique shop, but Lynne sells quite a lot of similar wide laces at Craft Den. I cut out flowers from another piece of the madelaine range and overlaid them with pinflair glue to create some height and added stickles and pearly baby buttons to the centre. I finished it off with another lovely Zva pearl bling swirl, a corrugated tag and some handstitching around the page border. Everything is edged with versa magic 'jumbo java'. Everything from Craft Den, except the buttons and thread from stash.

I hope you like it and please join in the fun at Anything Goes!
