Today's offering, a gorgeous and heartfelt layout from Stephanie Howell . . .

i wanted to make a soft, sweet layout to document this precious photo.

the victoria collection was perfect for the occasion.

the journaling is a bit hard to see b/c it is layered under the tulle and didn't photograph right. it looks so soft and pretty in person. it says:

he may have to be tough at work...but make no mistake about it, he's a sucker for you and sadie. no matter how old you are he will, without fail, be your safe place to fall. your protector and your greatest champion. i can promise you this. he loves you so much, i see it every time he looks at you. 2/2010

i hung the buttons on plain old twine, i got it out of my husband's hardware box and separated it into strands. the pages has six layers. it starts with the cardstock, then the patterned paper base, then tulle, then patterned paper, rubon, photo, journaling, and some pearl flowers , then tulle, then the title work and hanging buttons. for the tulle i used cream tulle circles from the wedding section of hobby lobby. i adhered them using a combination of spray adhesive and glue dots.
Pin It!
