Triple Play Blog Hop: Week 3-Beauty Bloom

It's Thursday, and that means it's time for the Triple Play Blog Hop! This week, we are all using a flower die called Beauty Bloom. I love this die (it's by Brenda Pinnick) because it has four shapes on the one die.

Here is my project...

I created this layout of my oldest daughter. Sadly, she is growing up way too fast and is already 17 years old. I took this photo of her last summer and it's one of my favorites. I used 12x12 chipboard as my background (for durability, since this layout will go in our booth for conventions.)

I then stamped the background with chalk ink for a soft look. Here you can see the background better. And the fun ribbon! ;)

I used my Big Shot Pro to cut the flowers and added them to the layout after inking and stamping them. I love the little dots from the backgrounds2build stamp set.
One of my favorite things about stamps is the ability to create my own patterned paper. :)
