Not A Baby!

The Week #3 Tally Scrapper Challenge is to create a layout about something that is starting to take shape in our lives. The actual layout itself needs to be ANY shape, except a square or a rectangle. Well, I wasn't sure just how to attack this one... I was originally thinking of finding a baby photo and a recent photo of Penny so show how she's changed but I though... nah, that's TOO obvious! So I came up with this:

What's really funny about this photo is that it's actually staged! I was messing with the camera one day and said, "Give me your BEST mad face" and THIS is the result! She does mad quite well... Anyway, I used the Echo Park Little Girl paper line and some cardstock to create my "Flower". I popped up my photo and added some pretty lace to the edges of it. Then I popped up my Sugar and Spice sticker too.

I added a little extra about the letters with my black pen to make them pop! I really like the way this turned out... Then I added some adhesive rub-ons from 7 Gypsies that have been in my stash forever. I used the Silver Glitter sheet with them so they would be all sparkly. I just love how the super girly layout contrasts with my pouty-faced little girl!

It was suggested that I enter this project into the K Andrew's Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky so I am! I hope you will all check out this challenge too :)
