A Free Spirit & Her Giggles...


This little girl is truly a free spirit and the wonderful Little Yellow Bicycle kit available here was just perfect for a layout all about her.  I did some serious altering/distressing of the papers for this layout.  First I covered the white cardstock in Smooch Spritz Gingersnap which is currently out of stock in the Queen Scraps store but there are so many other colors to choose from here.  Then I used my edge distressing tool and a little ink to rough up the 2" squares of patterned paper.  I created my own flowers using my scalloped circle punch, a pair of scissors, and some Glossy Accents.   The blue cardstock was cut, folded and sewn onto the layout to give the appearance of ribbon and then I used the lower case "b's" flipped over to serve as the other "g's" in my title.  A few hand drawn lines and brads finished off the framing of this adorable little girl and her giggles.  Enjoy!!!
