:LAYOUT: Sweet Thing

This was my daughter’s FAVORITE dress last spring and wanted to wear it every chance she got, so I wanted to be sure to highlight it well.

I had this picture both in color and sepia, so decided to layer a cropped portion of the color photo over the full-sized sepia version for an interesting effect.

Then I placed the sticker I used for my title over the rest of the photo.

Initially, I wanted to use a rub on journaling spot on the painted butterfly to act as a home for the date, but for some reason it didn’t want to transfer well, so I created the effect myself using a paint pen instead.

I love the quote that I used on this layout:

"Like star dust glistening on fairies' wings, Little girls dreams are of magical things."
~ Sherry Larson

It just seemed to be the perfect complement to this dreamy photo and sweet patterned paper.
