Baby DJ

I did this layout for a friend's baby who turns one today! I immediately knew I had to scrap this photo as soon as I saw it! Don't you just love that cheeky face?

I used papers from My Mind's Eye's Alphabet Soup Girl collection as I thought the "Sweet Song" paper especially, with its colourful music notes, was most appropriate for the photo of the little sweetheart having a spin at the turntable.

I lightly distressed and inked the papers, and then used my Martha Stewart Crafts Arch Lattice edge punch on strips of patterned paper which I then lined around the circular paper at the base of the layout. It gives a pretty lace-like effect to match the lace strips I placed below the photo.

I then added some flowers and pearl flourishes to complete the layout.

Happy Birthday Gaby! :)
