Small Beginnings Layout

This photo was taken when Mackenzie met her cousin, Thatcher, for the first time. He spent several weeks in the hospital after he was born so she was not able to visit him there. She was very excited to meet her new little cousin.
For the layout, I used 2 sheets of the double-sided Country Library by October Afternoon. I love double-sided coordinating papers! The photo was matted in cream cardstock and inked around the edges with Brillance Graphite Black ink. The green scalloped cardstock was a scrap that I inked and used the February journal stamp to allow for the quote and date. I used the Sakura stardust pen around the heart, on the journal lines and around the chipboard letters. The Prima flowers have a BasicGrey glazed brad in the center and are accented with the cool new suede leaf ribbon.
