From the stars....

Happy Monday to you! I've been inspired lately by all the scrapbookers who tear the edges of their papers, love that distressed look. So on this page, I cut out the middle of the die cut circle, then folded the edges back and stitched around the circle. Pics are of my little one who is now 3 1/2. I cheated a little bit, these pics aren't exactly the night she was born (as the rub on says)...she was actually in the ICU for 3 days with a heart defect that she was born with. She looks so sweet with her chubby cheekies! I miss these days!
Supplies:
Background paper: Making Memories Noteworthy
Die cut circle: Fresh Twist

Lined paper: Attic Treasures
Remember When sticker: 12" border stickers
Chipboard stars: Glitter Christmas
Pearls: Attic Treasures
Rub on saying: Baby Girl Transfers
Angel resin:
Cherished Cherubs Applique Set
Embroidery Floss: DMC
Punch: Lace border punch by Fiskars
(all by Melissa Frances unless otherwise noted)

That was then... here she is now, my little peanut. They grow so fast, don't they?And a little card that I made for a swap pal with more of the Fresh Twist papers by Melissa Frances:
