Isn't She Sweet

I'm back today with a layout I finished a few days ago.  I was inspired by the Throwback Thursday challenge at My Scraps And More for last Thursday.  The challenge was to use a collection that was at least 3 years old.  I pulled out my Basic Grey "Porcelain" collection.  I'm thinking that one is about 5 years old!  

I made this layout about a friend's baby shower (that baby is now 3 1/2 years old!).  I printed the photos as a photo collage and built my layout around them.  I used the photo collage as a pocket for the invitation. I wanted to add some pattern to my background cardstock so I used my Stamping Gear and some pink ink to stamp the pattern.

To highlight the photo of the sweet baby of honor, I used a felt frame.  The actual frame had already been used, so I used the felt that was left around it to cut another one. I used some canvas flowers to embellish the layout.  I inked them with some yellow and pink inks to make them match the colors in my layout.  I finished them off with some buttons.  Rather than using string in the holes of the buttons, I squirted some platinum Stickles in them for a different look.

The other part of the challenge was to used 3 stickers from the collection.  I used a journaling sticker, the flower, and a circle sticker that I stuck to a button.
