Y is fr Yarn over at Scrapology

This month ( much to my delight) we are once again lifting a beautiful layout by my favourite scrapper, Gabrielle Pollaco ( please do pop along and check out her truly inspirational blog)..

I have been busting to scrap this photo of my scrumptious, youngest niece, Madison and when I saw these lush new Crate Paper sheets in the Little Bo Peep collection I just knew that I HAD to use them for this challenge and scrap this gorgeous little bundle of pink fun.
I even had a go at making something from Pergamano and created the little frilly dress....not sure I really have the patience required for it though , so this is probably the only layout you will see it on LOL

 The added challenge was use some sort of yarn on our pages, so I took a reel of silver metallic thread and drew stripes on it with a Hot Pink Promarker....and made a sort of Bakers Twine. I layered up various blossoms and punched out some leaf sprigs and a deco fan edge strip, then added a few dots of Liquid Pearls here and there.

I cut a circle of corrugated card ( from the front flap of a pizza box LOL,) then sprayed with a white mister and edged with Liquid Pearls

and also did a fair bit of fussy cutting of baby clothes, little chicks etc. i really REALLY enjoyed this challenge.

Here is Gabrielle's original, stunning page that we lifted............

And here is the sketch we worked from......................
