Hi, everyone! Doris here with a layout to share. 😀 I snapped this normal everyday pic of Madison one day when the kids were all camping out in the living room. She’s all snuggled up in her favorite blanket which was given to her by a friend of mine before she was even born.

To create my background, I used the Creative Embellishments Bokeh stamp with some gelatos. It didn’t turn out quite how I’d intended because after stamping with it, I had wanted to blur the lines a bit and misted it with more water. Too much water. lol So It’s splotchier than it started out being. After that goof, I had to continue with it, so I went ahead and made the rest of the background to match. lol I altered both the flourish and the Out of this World chipboard pieces with gelatos as well, but went with an acrylic paint on the Chunky Alphas. Here’s how it turned out:

warm and cozy

To create my page, I was also inspired by challenges at Scrap Around the World, Stuck?! Sketches and Scrap Africa. These are the CE products I used on my page (the images are linked to their store listings):
