Hello everyone,

Goodmorning on this lovely Sunday in July, can you believe how fast this year is going we are half way through already. Our little girl turned one year old 4 days ago wow {mommy is getting old lol}! For this layout with Abbey still as my center point as you can imagine.. I used the gorgeous “Little street Cafe” collection combined with the “Celebration” collection {I love the darker colors in this collection} I challenged myself to use more then one pictures so I could capture Abbey’s silly face phase she is such a fun girl but lately she gets angry when we pick her up it must be a phase every kid is going through….Kevin didn’t have that but he is a boy so maybe girls a different.

In this layout I used Abbey her flowered hair band with salmon colored flowers in my layout….I have seen people do that before so I thought well why not me! How are you all doing btw? Hopefully you haven’t lost people that are close to you from this nasty virus…I find it very hard to be at home all day but we have too so much more time to create right? We are on our summer break now just one week left {we have three}….We are painting our house and making it pretty to live in hopefully next year we can go on a nice trip to a warm country or so.

On my layout to can see that I used a text stamp on the background of my pink paper and a stencil of text on the black paper. The chipboard are by The Dusty Attic and the flowers and wishing bubbles are by 49 and Market also I added some prima marketing flowers on this layout.

Behind my pictures and flowers I added some cheesecloth to give my layout a little bit more texture. The sweet memories text I gessod and later on embossed with some black embossing powder by Lindy’s. I really love how this layout turend out. The chipboard leaves are painted with Dusty Attic’s Forrest paint.

    I love the mix of colors and flowers and everything here and also the texture is perfect for such a little darling. Beautiful work as always and such a sweet memory to keep. And boys are a lot easier even as babies, I can tell after having 3 boys and 1 girl LOL, and just wait the temper will show even more, as she grow up ha ha ha.
    Have a wonderful week and stay safe everyone inhere.
