My granddaughter Angie, who is 9 years old, is truly very "Bright and Beautiful." She is a Girl Scout, in the school choir, is a peer mediator and recently made honor roll.
As I sat in my craft room last night admiring this pretty designer paper from Bo Bunny, I decided to take Angie's picture and surround it with pretty embellishments. I started by mounting it on a piece of Coredinations card stock.
Next, I cut the title at 3" from the Tinker Bell & Friends cartridge by Cricut. When I saw the title, I knew it was perfect for my layout.
The Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge is the newest of my acquisitions by Cricut. It contains some beautiful flower images and I used it to create these flowers. The leaves are from the Stampin' Up little leaf sizzlet. I love butterflies and these butterflies are made with a Martha Stewart punch.
I also cut out the swirly butterfly at 2" from the same cartridge and added Stickles to almost everything. You can't see it very well, but I wrapped ribbon by Martha Stewart all around my layout.

As I was making this layout, Angie saw it and she secretly went to work on her own layout of me. Of course when she gave it to me, it brought a smile to my face and I cried happy tears. Below is her own creation.
Hope you enjoyed this layout as much as I enjoyed making it. Have a very blessed day and bring some "joy" into someone's life.
