Twinkle toes

Hi :)
Last Fall I was asked to participate in the Canadian Scrapbooker cover challenge !!!Sadly, I did not get the cover ,but I did end up being one of the 3 finalists !!! This was a big challenge for me because as some of you know, I mostly create boy layouts...and they are always 12 X 12 in size. For this challenge , I needed to created a 8 1/2 X 11 girlie layout of this sweet baby girl !!! Isn't she cute !!

Twinkle Toes

Most of the supplies are from Lily Bee Designs-Persnickety collection and little bits and pieces from Jillibean Soup and Basic Grey.

Thanks for the visit :) . I always love reading your comments !!
