Graphic 45 Scrapbook page- Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge

Happy Sunday, All!

The challenge this fortnight at Craft Hoarders Anonymous is a sketch.  In celebration of the National Scrapbooking Day, I decided to use the sketch for a scrapbook page.  I usually only make cards and I am not used to photographing 12x12 paper so please pardon the photos!  I took some outside and inside to try to get the best photos possible.  :)

First of all, the two adorable young ladies in the photo are my nieces.  The pictures were taken when they visited us over Canada Day.  I love this photo of them...every time I see it I cannot help but smile.  They are beautiful girls inside and out!
The paper is mostly from Graphic 45's Mother Goose collection except the green diagonal striped paper which is from the Magic of Oz.  The photo is on two Cheery Lynn doilies (French Pastry) and on red patterned die cut from Spellbinders Heirloom Legacy.  My old stamp is BIG HUG from Hampton Art- made in 2011...and never used until this layout.  I added swirl bling and flowers as shown.
In the top left corner I used my new stamp "You make me happy" from Pink Paislee's Hello Sunshine set.  It was die cut with Spellbinders Matting Basics and adhered to yellow die cut paper from Spellbinders Pearl Effects.  The pennants were scrap Mother Goose paper.  
It was fun to do a scrapbook layout again.  It has been too long and I have so many photos that should be in a scrapbook...perhaps I shall make a point to do one more often than once a year!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great Sunday and a wonderful week!
