SHE....believes in fairy tales!

I LOVE this layout! It is quite detailed in creation but OH SO worth it! It covers TRIPLE fold as I used Sarah's stamps from Pink By Design and our 'Friday Frills' challenge this week (posting TOMORROW) is themed 'The Birds and the Bees,' all created for my FIRST DT entry for Kristal's Simply Sunday challenge, Pennants and Banners! WOO HOO! I snapped a few photos along the way to give you a tutorial....

Here I am stamping the pennant frame onto the pink to be cut out and places over the scalloped pennant base I stamped onto the paper. I used Cocoa ink from CTMH that matched perfectly!

I adhered each of the cut triangle pieces to each stamped image.

The pennants at the top are stitched. I used the WE R 'Sew Easy' attachments. I sewed the pennants in a mixed thread and then sewed the dark brown across the top for them to hang.

Included in the pennant and banners stamp set from Pink By Design are little circles, dots and buttons. I added small Cocoa dots inside the shape on the paper.

I used a HEADBAND for the fun white piece across the top of the 'SHE' banner.

I created the white flower with folded white chiffon! the 'SHE' is stamped onto the banners (the alphabet is ALSO included in the stamp set). White pearl beads across the top of the pennants and inside the blue Prima flower were PERFECT!

The layered photo mats were sewn on with the sewing machine and I added rhinestones across the pennants and in side the flower!

This is the photo I took that will be placed on this page. I wasn't able to get it printed prior to photographing the project!

The top left corner with the sewn pennants, dots and sewn photo mats.

The bottom left corner with the banner! I also inked around the page with the 'direct to paper' technique!

The bottom right corner. I also tore along the bottom of the photo mat. I really believe it's all of the finer details that 'Make the Page." The sub title is hand written and I added each rhinestone to create a flourish and highlight the writing.

The date is written in pink in the top right corner circle.

And, again, here is the completed layout! I hope you'll consider participating in the challenges with us.
