Baby Leah

My very dear friend had his first baby girl. I promised him that I would make something special for his little girl Leah. I used the K & Co mat pad to create the border around the page. I cut all the pieces free hand and pieced them together the best I could. I looked through all the cartridges I had to find cherries, but had no luck...sooo, I made my own from different cuts. The stems are actually the sides of a chipboard heart that I had as a scrap piece. The baby girl outfit is from NA. I used the Fiskars water thread punch for the scallops (thanks DSIL!!) For the name I used OA and liquis glassed the shadow part. I put the finished LO into a 12 X 12 framed shadow box.

This is how the finished LO looks inside the shadow box:
