lil'Miss - ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday April 18

Hi there

Today is my nieces BIRTHday and in honour of her day, I thought
I should do a layout of her.
I found these sweet photos, taken back in 1993.
Courtney was wearing the cutest lil'outfit

I found another great sketch-y Friday over at ScrapMuch? 
If you haven't played along, there is still time!
Sketch-y Friday
Here is my take:

I created using cardstock, patterned paper and velum (for my first time)
I did a lot of stitching (with the Pfaff - what a machine! )
added in a zipper and DIY zipper flower
A paper doilie and velum along with some silhouette cut files,
LYB wood signs, wood veneer arrow
To balance this LO, I used MME wooden button, journal tag, 
wooden peg and the other half of the zipper
so FUN!
I remember, we had a lot of FUN that day at the park, then she fell and her 
"hand DIRTY" Dantie
 (Courtney nicknamed me that - Auntie Danie backwards HA! )

This layout CHALLENGED me!!
I had it in my head what it needed to look like...
executing was more challenging.
(the photograph of this LO appears to show different tones of yellow
but in fact they all match - even MME
wooden button {it photographed orange?}

 - it really is quite pretty!

HaPpy BIRTHday Courtney
I remember the day you were born

Thank you for stopping by
