Budding Footballer.....

I took a series of photographs on a beautiful summers day when Georgia was about 18 months old, and have wanted to scrap them ever since. Then I started to make this layout with a completely different photograph in mind until the said photo when printed was actually rubbish in real life.
So I had a rumage through my box of photos and I came apon this!! Not only did it match the cute 1950's girl and the floral spray at the top but it meant I got to cross one of those I must do' the list!! The poor lighting doesn't show the pink glitter card in the middle and the stickles on the floral spray and the cute girls clothes. I was quite pleased with my idea to add liquid pearls around the cardstock as it has added definition to the shape......and the Budding Footballer title is very apt don't you think?

I just wanted to share this with you. It's a digital scraplift of my Sing Hosanna layout and was made by Mary Buttons who kindly asked my permission to lift the LO. Isn't it nice when someone gives you credit and then shows you their finished work. I think she has done a fantastic the string of pearls Mary..if only I could do digi my jewellery box would be never ending!

Love and rosebuds RUTHxxx

It is gorgeous Ruth, yes all you need is a few staples, wanna borrow my stapler? I love that girl paper, I am sure I have some stashed away....may have to root around for it. I have been busy scrapping and have a few more layouts to be shared. Just finished another one in typical Micayla style complete with staples.
Oh and I agree I am so happy Emily was a girl. I swear if she was not I would of dressed him in girlie clothes and scrapped in pink......shocker. I am sure Ben will not mind.
