First Smile Layout

Hello!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  We had a sleepover with 12 little girls on Friday for my daughter's 9 birthday - it was lots of fun!

Here is a layout I did of my little guy when he was just one month old.  He's 2 now - the time goes so fast.  All of the papers I used are Karen Foster, I inked everything with Walnut Distress ink.  I used the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge for the large shape in the background and for the shape that the title is on.  I used Lyrical Letters for the title and Create a Critter for the moon and stars.  I used Tags, Bags Boxes and More for the hearts for the banner - they have a little slit in the top right that I strung the baker's twine through.  I used the largest stylus from the McGill Paper Blossoms kit to distress the hearts to make them a little 3D.

I don't usually use sketches but I thought I would give it a try - I found this sketch here:

I am posting this layout on the following sites:
