Before You Were Born..

Here's my take on Cay's "My Little Prince" kit. I think I got carried away again, experimenting on a lot of different things. And yet again, I wanted to use everything that came with the kit because ideas just came pouring in.

First I cut a strip of the striped paper and used those as a border that framed my entire layout. I used one of Cay's round templates that she gave away as a freebie. I cut that in half and separated the halves. I didn't want the flower border to get distorted by transforming it to oval.

I used the teddy bear shape as my journaling tag, made it look like I pinned it on the layout, I made it look like I tied the ribbon to the safety pin and hanged the hearts through the pin! Aren't those bling-y hearts just gorgeous? I recolored one of the hearts from blue to pink.

Now the fun part! Cay made this pretty blue button so I got this idea of putting some art on the button! Of course, the art came from the kit as well. I extracted a baby face and a crown from one of the patterned papers and pasted each one on the button.

So here I have a baby + crown = a baby prince! These are my nephew, Jan Rafael, and my sister-in-law, Maria Theresa Ibarra...who bears my maiden name! Isn't that just awesome?

Journaling on tag reads:

Dear Jan Rafael, we don't know you yet but we love are new beginnings, new life; you are family.. the gift of tomorrow belongs to you.

(quoted from Judy Janish)
