Perfect Smile

My finished page for Novembers Competition at Paper Paradise. The journelling is hidden underneath the photo and reads:

Georgia kept her lips pursed in her last school photo, when I asked her why she said
"because I don't want people to see I have a dummy"
You can imagine my relief when she brought this gorgeous picture home from school with her natural beaming smile.
A week later she lost her first tooth and it's back to
"Mummy do I look ugly when I smile?"
I try to reassure her that she is always beautiful in my eyes!

This is how I made it;
I originally wanted to do an oval but it was too hard and Georgia's face looked really round so I thought lets emphasise it.
As I don't have a cicle cutter I used 2 dinner plates to create the circular frame and raised it with foam. I printed the photo on A4 paper first to ensure I cut the cicle in the right place then laid that one over the good copy.
The letters were hand cut, inked and I smeared a lilac glitter glue on them. They were attached with silicone which I have only recently discovered, thanks to Norma and the Wednesday card makers.
I drew the flourishes on A4 and played about with the dimensions then cut them by hand, inked and attached. Inked my flowers as the blue wasn't a perfect match and diamond glazed the buttons in place. Voila!!!

The presents and nursery/craft room as previously mentioned!!
