Sweet Girl

I love when I can combine work and play... 
This is one of my monthly projects for Creative Embellishments and it was inspired by the Lindy's Stamp Gang and More than Words March challenges.
I've had this picture of my friends beautiful daughter for a while now, I just loved the Smash the cake photo shoot she did for her daughter's first birthday. Wish that concept existed 18 years ago (sniff..). 

 This Smash the cake picture is perfect for the Lindy's challenge don't you think?

I wanted a classy but fun look for this page, and really wanted to use texture to give some of the feeling of that cake frosting.

I started by applying molding paste thru a flower stencil, then added 2 different colors of similar hues of my Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays. I've mentioned it before, but in case you missed it, I add my sprays with a paint brush to have better control of my prays. I used two of the colors of the March color combo for Lindy's Stamp Gang.

Now the smash the cake was for her 1st birthday, so I wanted to ensure I would have the Happy Birthday small words on the page. I struggled on where to place it for a while, then it took place. I wanted to add just a few touches of black to add some dimension, so I also added this beautiful embossed half butterfly it was the perfect touch and a suggestion from the More than Words March challenge.
Notice also the small frame underneath, they have become my favorite chippies and go on all my projects, I just can't get enough of theses small frames. For the candy effect, the art stones worked perfectly and really take the color of the stains. Love this effect.

Now for a few more pictures...

Ohhh the 3 inch clock chipboard, another recent favorite:

And last but not least, this beautiful Sweet Girl Chipboard title, I just love it simply embossed in white.

The Lindy's Stamp Gang moodboard:

My smash the cake picture is just perfect for this challenge don't you think?

The More than Words moodboard:

The challenge:
Word Inspiration - BEAUTIFUL
Creative Challenge - BUTTERFLY

That was easy, Have you seen this girl, she is just a stunning Princess, and how cute is she in this picture? She truly was the inspiration for my page. I also found that the colors of this picture resemble the one of the challenge board.

Again, that was easy, love my chipboard butterfly. The black touch makes it stand out.

The Creative Embellishments products used on this challenge are the following:

I hope you enjoyed my take on these challenges
