Daisy Girl

Yet another page for my daughters scrapbook in this picture shes four, well I think she is I know it was her birthday. Trouble is she was always  so tall for her age and so grown up you know 4 going on 24. She was so fearless and determined nothing phased her and she was always prepared to give anything a go. She's still fearless, but age has taught her to temper it with a good deal of thought and good sense thank goodness. 

These pictures makes me smile because she's all dressed in her pretty party frock, and what she got on her feet? Skates.Today, now she's 19 it would undoubtedly be a fine pair of killer heels, but here its skates and she looks so cute.      

For this page I used the Papermania 12 x12 sheet which I then sponged over with white paint and spritzed in gold. I then added the cream lace around the boarder of the page and sewed this with the machine. 
I mounted the pictures on pale yellow card and then using scraps from my paper stash. I then placed the pictures side by side slightly off the centre of the page. 

I then created a three tiered title band for the base of the page which I placed again off set under the photos.  I added the title birthday girl in gold lettering.

I also die cut two circles from the same paper I had used for the title strip and created a journalling patch, which I placed in the top right hand corner of the page. .

Finally I added  several differing sized daisies with gold gems in the centre. I chose  daisies as they reflect the daisy pattern on the dress.

I'm going to hopefully enter this page into the CCW Scrapbook blog challenge.  Hopefully both they and Bryony will love it.
