Daughter with Tattered Angels

This is a picture of my sweet daughter Catherine and I playing around last spring.  She just loves to be tickled and to be held upside down, and the wonderful photographer caught me playing around with her to get her in a good mood for the pictures we were about to have. Sometimes it is the pictures you were not intending on taking are the best!!

I used lots of layers per my norm, I just love layers!! It adds such a depth to any project, keep it from being so flat even thought it still is mostly flat, as it is just paper and ink.  I used the center of my papers as the focus of the layout, and just let the beauty of the doily edge around the outside shine. 

I love Susan K. Weckesser stamps, they work for so many projects.  Here are some of my favorite phrases.  One is "Celebrate the Simple Things" and boy is this true, never forget the little things that make life so full of joy!!  I used it here as a subtitle below some of the layers.  Here I also took the wonderful Glimmer Glam from Tattered Angels to paint the chipboard title "Daughter".

Espresso Bean- Glimmer Glam 1.35oz

Here I took two of the phrases from the stamp set below "Create your Day" and "Don't go through life grow though life"  as they both just work with this picture so wonderfully.  I stamped these along the side of the layers as seen in the picture above.

From the same above stamp set I also took the phrase stamp "Homegrown Love On the Home Front" as used it randomly around the page for lots of subtitles and also to add an even more distressed look to the page.
