Time to celebrate......

From time to time, I like to take out the old photos of my kids and give them a new look.
This time, I make a layout with Clare's baby picture and I am entering this for the challenge at 
July challenge is kraft cardstock (of course)
plus
Fabrics


plus 
Stitching......


I actually started with lots of zig-zac stitching with the kraft cardstock base, but as I layered things all over, it covered up all the "hardwork", LOL! Or I should say, I changed my mind along the way and decided to go this direction????


anyway, no point talking about "the original" idea now.....  : (
