My Big Project

So I have spent the last two weeks working on a big project.  My friend's little girl's first birthday was coming up and I decided to do something special.  I imagined this all up in my mind and was so excited to actually create it.  I don't want you to think I'm bragging, but I am pretty proud of it.  It took a lot of time and hard work, but I think it turned out great!

I "made" most of the paper myself.  The White and Black Fleur de Lis paper was just plain white cardstock and I stamped and embossed the black fleur de lis to create my own pattern paper.  This by far took the longest amount of time.  Then, I also "made" my pink pattern paper.  It was just a solid pink, and I stamped the design across the whole thing.  I also handmade all the paper roses you see.  Its hard to tell, but I have a lot of sparkle bling on each of the pages, and there is glitter on the paper roses.  You can click on each of the photos to see them in more detail. Enjoy!






I also decided to make a banner for her room (my black, white and pink theme was inspired by her cute bedding in her crib).
