I used a retired paper package called Topstitch which was one of my favourites and still in my stash. The chocolate cardstock is dry embossed and sanded to show the embossed lines. I used the retired stamp set Stitched Alphabet to create the letters - stamp, punch and baby pink floss to embroider. Baby pink embellishments, colonial white ribbon, eyelet edge punch and some chocolate flowers with pink button centres finish off the page.
"There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again."
Doesn't this just describe the innocence of babies.
All photo mats and each page are edge distressed with chocolate ink to add some dimension and continue with the distressed look of the paper.
Flowers and buttons and ribbon - what could be more girly - all in a cluster it makes a great embellishment - topped with a ribbon bow of chocolate grosgrain.
I hope the book has enough pink in it for Daddy!!
Happy crafting everyone and I hope you start your own Paper Traditions.
