I have made another layout using the hospital photo of our newborn baby girl, but I decided to do another one when I saw this layout. (With the Sketch of the Month Kits I have been constructing my layouts first and then finding photos that work on each layout. Totally out of the box for me, I always start with my pictures first and plan my page around them.)

Again today I am using Echo Park’s This & That Graceful collection. To change things up I didn't do a lot of embellishments or layers and went more linear.  One of the sheets of paper in this collection had various strips- which are perfect to cut apart and either use as a 12 inch border or alter them for your project. I used 5 of those strips on this layout, my inspiration for staying linear. (The flag strip I trimmed each flag and I added rhinestones to the flower strip after I "fish tailed" the ends and distressed it with ink.) The birdcage is a sticker from the collection (I added the bling.) and so is the journal card. I also added rhinestones to the flag border strip. I invested less than 20 minutes on this layout, and ended up with a page I am very pleased with.
Looking at that picture I wonder where the last 6 years gone. I will say it for the millionth time, "Time is flying by way too fast!!"
Thanks for stopping by!!
Until later~

Great layout, Lisa. Definitely outside your box. I love this look and have a hard time getting it. Very nice.
