Here's my project:

Made this layout for my girl's ballet concert. We really love this photo of her. And as parents, we are so so proud of her.

To match and draw your eyes to the photo, I used a soft pastel palette of papers. You might wonder what lovely papers I used. Its my favourite Tilda papers. Added the raw chipboards and Prima leaves and flowers. Randomly adhered pearls around the layout.

Loved this cluster of flowers and here's my little girl in the "China Doll" costume.

And this is my favourite go-to embellishments: Chipboard Shapes

Now you are to hop to Gayle Gordon's blog.

Have fun crafting.
