A little baby chic

This layout was so much fun.  How could it not be with a totally cute picture of my grandbaby and another interesting sketch from one of the Jeanette Lynton books.  Part of me wants to point out the things that didn't work out as well as I hoped but, I'm going to endeavour to stop critiquing my work to death.  It smells of pandering for compliments and I don't want to be quilty of that.  Anyway, I had fun with this picture and making the page.  Caroline definitely looks like she is posing for her mommy, wonder if she knew Audrey Hepburn in another life - definitely has that whole Breakfast at Tiffany's look going on.

  1. I love the paper you used Ben.
    Caroline is precious and those sunglasses are just too cute!
    I really like how you took the anchors, tied the ribbon to them, and the journaling on them.
    Great layout

  2. ADORABLE!! Plain and simple fact! I love this. What a cutie in that pic to start with!! But the LO is great. I love the ribbons with the jounaling on them, too. And love all the cute word under baby chic.

    You are just like me. You pick at your own work too hard. BUT...they say a "true artist" is NEVER satisfied with their work!! LOL LOL!

  3. That picture is adorable! Your layout looks great and that picture makes it! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Too cute but with a photo like that how could it not be great! Your granddaughter is just beautiful!!!

  5. The paper choice is awesome, I love that you did so many patterns! Also a great photo to stand alone!

  6. I agree with the previous posters...sometimes having a great photo makes the layout great plain & simple. :)

  7. So many cute elements on this layout: the epoxy sticker word collage, the sideways brackets framing the title, the cute papers, and the photo anchors pointing the way to the focus of this layout, that sweet baby! Love it.
