A Layout to love!

I'm so proud of how this layout turned out!  I have been looking at many of your blogs and have gained tremendous inspiration that is taking me new directions everyday in the crafting world.  This layout is based on a sketch from the Beary Sweet Challenge #21...


This layout will be perfect for milestones of our little Madeline when she arrives, and I plan on adding a second co-ordinating page to go along with it!  I used my Martha Stewart edge punch for the side strip of green.  I used the Storybook Cartridge for the letters, corner designs, and butterflies.  The trees were made using the Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge, cut in 3 different sizes.  I ran all of the trees through my Sizzix Texture Boutique and Swirls embossing folder which I had ran my brown Stampin Up Ink pad along the front side for added contrast.  I also I added the hearts to the largest tree from the Basic George Cartridge.  The two flowers came from my stash and I accented one with a brown brad in the center of it.  I also ran a Stampin' Up ribbon in gold and white along the decorative strip and main background paper.  For some added "bling" I used gold and rainbow stickles.  And viola!!!

This LO will be entered into the following challenges:
Beary Sweet Challenge #21 - use sketch
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #50 - use a tree
Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge #8 - use the Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge
Kleirr's Kreations - National Craft Month

Thank you soooo very much for taking the time to look at my work, I love and cherish all coments!
Happy Crafting!
