A New LO

The layout which I've got for you today is one where DGD2 aka Estie is lighting Sabbath candles. All Jewish married women light candles on Friday night and some (big) girls do too. Estie decided the time had come for her to take up the tradition and of course DD snapped this pic.

 I used the scrummy Lost and Found collection from My Mind's Eye. I layered a couple of pps one over the other and used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch to create a photo mat for the picture, I cut strips of PPand edge punched them. I then used foam squares to attach the strips to give them some dimension above and below the photo mat. At the bottom I also added some ribbon to the lower punched strip. I adhered some mini pearls to the pink strips both above and below the photo mat. The photo is also attached with foam squares to raise it off the mat and below the photo is some bronze lace. The word Princess is cut out from one of the pps. I added a combination of  purchased and handmade flowers to the left hand side of the LO and a ribbon bow at the top and bottom of the flowers. On the top left corner is a crochet doily and some little banners attached with baker's twine, the end of which I left trailing. Two metal corners on the photo mat and a brown thickers title finish the layout. Below you can see some close ups.
The flowers Are made using the Spellbinders rose creations dies and the cuttlebug chrysanthemum quilling die
