I Believe I Can Fly...

Love. Love. Love these wings that belong to my baby Evareaux.  They can only be more adorable when paired with a massive petticoat tutu and a field of wild flowers.  Does it get any better than this?

This layout was created for one of my submissions to a magazine.  (Whenever they call, I submit, submit, submit!) I like the finished product.  The call was for a project created using eyelets.  So I went a little wild with the crop-o-dile.  It was a lot of fun to make.  The quote is perfect for the photo, I think.
  I remember seeing this quote framed in my Mom's home growing up, or some variation of it.  Now my baby will grow up to read it on a scrapbook page about herself.  That's one of the reasons I love scrapping.  Everything is taylor made and thoughtful....even pages that were begun for the purposes of submitting have so much meaning.

For this layout I sketched out the butterfly wings on patterned paper (called Twitterpated--so fitting) before cutting them out.  Some of the eyelets have brads placed in the middle to add more interest.  I am also loving these flower elements from Basic Grey called Bloomers.  They are begging to be placed on so many different projects.

This page makes me think of my own wings...
I'm ready to let my dreams take flight....
