My Favorite Girl

I am so very ready for winter to be over! While I still can't put away the coat (or my socks), I can move on in my scrapbooks and work with some bright and sunny supplies. I love this Hometown Summer line by Pink Paislee. It's my favorite summer line released at CHA! You will see me use it over and over all season long. I don't think it's available for purchase yet, but I'm pretty sure that 2Peas should have it in the coming weeks.

This page is about my little niece and what a good girl she is. Her little spirit adds so much to my life and to our family.  I decided to journal right underneath the photos, since each one depicts her personality and what I wanted to express perfectly.
This layout was made for the Pink Paislee blog.
My favorite part of the layout is this lollipop that I created from a die cut, a picture pebble, the large flower punch from EK and a white cookie pop stick. I bought the stick at Michaels and everything else is from the Hometown Summer collection.  I added a strip of patterned paper and wound it around the stick for a pop of color.
Click on any of the pictures for a closer look.
These wood letters are from Pink Paislee's Daily Junque line. They are raw wood and I painted them to match my layout. I love the size and how I can customize them. I also added a quote to that skinny strip on my layout for a finishing touch. It reads:

"A little girl...one of the most beautiful miracles in life, one of the greatest joys we can know, and one of the reasons why there is a little extra sunshine, laughter and happiness in your world today. – author unknown”
This was such a fun, happy, bright line to work with. Is it summer yet? :)

Be back soon...
