You Make My Heart Swell

Well...this these pics of Mimi & Eric do anyway :) I have so few of Eric period, never mind him with the kids. He is truly photophobic! Mimi is so sweet with her pink blankie wrapped around her neck & pointing to the pictures.

Isn't this cabbage rose paper by Crate Paper to die for?! Had to go with a romantic vintage feel for this one.

The 3D rose is from K&Co., they originally had leaves attached but the green was all wrong. A little trimming and a Prima leaf and problem solved. I tend to alter a lot of my premade embellishments to make them work for my needs :)

I'm a little disappointed that the aqua letter stickers don't show up as well in the photos, they match perfectly.

The trim, button & tulle are actually vintage. Added the pearls to the trim & button.

Had to hollow out the center of the clock face & set the button down into it, it was too thick otherwise.
