Forever My Gramma's LiL Girl..

I found this old photo of me while going through my grandmothers photos. I knew I wanted to make a layout with it and I also wanted to point out that it is my grandmothers photo of me..
She held onto it for over 30 years and I'm sure this is the way she always seen me.."as a lil girl!"
Here's a close up of the photo and the title.. I love the little butterflies surrounding the title and "holding the baby" cut from A Child Year Cartridge..
just a close up of the butterflies.. I added some baby pink stickle drops for the trail.
