CCG Palette 190 - My Niece

I just loved the inspirational picture this week, all those tones washing into each are stunning. We were to focus on siblings and or pets, since my brother and I live so far apart I very rarely get to see him or his family so moments like the photo have rarely been captured. This was my first introduction to my niece and also the last for another 2 years so I wanted to make the page quite pretty and girly.

My Niece a

Materials used. Background Srapworks Magpie Orchard, Crate Paper Doilies, K & CO Serafera and Cosmo Cricket. DMC threads in 4 colours for the stitching, Silver alpha sticker sent to my by Eila. The frame around the photos was cutout from and old K & Company front paper stack cover, other Alphabets are from BG and MM. I had made two flowers. Background papers was painted, stamped and spritzed. Left hand side of the picture I have used the negatives from two stickers. I painted and stitched around the photo. Other embellishments are from Fancy pants, Websters, WeR,prima and Kaiser.

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
