Sweet & Sassy

 Here is a layout I designed using the Lost&Found 3~ Ruby collection by {My Mind's Eye}

I used some of the grey toned papers paired with hot pink accents to create this beautiful layout about my brand new daughter, Hadley.  She may be a new little baby but I can already tell her personality is sweet and sassy!

I knew I wanted my title to incorporate different lettering.  I used letter stickers from Echo Park's Be Mine collection.  I chose small pink letters for "sweet" and larger letters for Sassy. 

I liked the large black letters but I felt they needed a little something so I added tiny pearl bling to the letters.  Above is what the letters looked like before and below is the after.

I really love the results!  I also used some hat pins as an embellishment on the pink flower.  I love the look of these but one thing has always bugged me about them.  They don't come with a piece for the bottom, you know a cap for the bottom of the pin.  I was trying to come up with some fun ways to use the washi tape and solved my own problem.  I cut the washi tape down the center and used a piece that was about an inch long and wrapped it around the bottom of my pins.  You can see in the photo above the end of the pin with the washi tape before it was completely wrapped around the pin.  Below is what the washi tape looks like on the role, before I cut it down the center.

 The base for my title block and my journaling block are these cute pages I tore out of this Spiral Journaling Book by Making Memories.

 Here is the finished title for my layout.

Sweet & Sassy ~ just like my baby girl!
