Baby Danielle....

 I used a copy of one of the very few photos I have of my youngest when she was a baby on this layout! I just didn't take many photos back then (but I've since made up for that with the many many photos I have of her now!! LOL).

I used products from my November Studio Calico to make this. I was going for a kind of abstract heart using a piece of the chevron patterned paper as the bottom and the photo and embellies as the top of the heart. I did some layering with the American Crafts Amy Tangerine Diecuts and some diecuts I made using my Silhouette Cameo.
The pennant with the "you" cut out inside is a modified diecut that I made using an exclusive Studio Calico diecut that was given to us in the "Cut it Out" class that's sponsored by Silhouette America. I cut it using a 12 x 12 piece of washi paper. That paper is so very delicate and not very easy to cut on the Cameo, but I used the vellum setting on the machine and it just cut through the top layer and kept the bottom piece intact so it was like a sticker sheet. I love the veneer feathers in our kit this month and I like to use them just natural - even though I have seen some very gorgeous coloring techniques on them! I used some very old acrylic Jenni Bowlin stars from my stash and a Pebbles button on the heart on the corner. Trying to use and not hoard - which is so very hard with the cute things I love!! LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by have a wonderful day!! :)
