Baby Picasso

*** Click HERE for my GIVEAWAY!! ***

Hi Everyone!! So sorry this post took longer than I had anticipated... A quick one page layout turned into a two page layout! AND we got a surprise call that my husband's parents are coming here tomorrow for a few days so I have been getting prepared for company. 

The pics in this layout are from when Bria made her very first finger painting! LOL Such a typical first time parent... taking pics of every time the first born blinks! 
Apparently my mind was elsewhere when I was working on this layout and I made an error... I'm hoping no one notices?? 

My pictures are not the greatest... I lost my light tonight. 

I was so excited about my new Recess cart!! It's awesome!! 

Here are some details...
  • the frame around Bria's painting came from Pooh and Friends cut at 8". I used gold brads in the corners to look like nails
  • the title came from a combination of Baby Steps and Hello Kitty Font. I welded the letters together on my gypsy
  • the cute little paintbrush came from Recess, I used glossy accents over the paint to make it look more like real pain
  • the sentiment on the bottom of the frame reads 'From small beginnings come great things' from the Baby Love set by Pink By Design. I embossed it with white embossing powder
  • the other paint brushes and palette also came from Recess, the paint on the palette is also embellished with glossy accents and I inked around the palette with Tim Holtz ink
  • the buttons are basic grey
  • the pearls are from the dollarstore
  • I used my Martha Stewart drippy goo border punch along the blue layer and added glossy accents to make the paint more realistic
  • twine from the twinery
  • recollections brads
  • doodles with white gelly roll pen

If you haven't checked out my giveaway yet, you should! (Link at the top of this post...) It hasn't been overly successful so far... :( But I guess that means a better chance for anyone who enters!!
