Girly Blog Hop- Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons

Welcome to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Girly blog hop..

If you came here from Melissa's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit Lisa's blog." 

For today's hop, we were asked to create a GIRLY project.. 
I decided on a layout and used some of the fun GIRLY cutting files from the PPPR store..

This is what I created:
Is this blurry or is just me?.. It looked great when I took it :)

I used one of the labels in the layered labels from Layered Labels 1 cutting file to create the over sized background and then added some scalloped trim to the bottom of the layout using the Borders 2 cutting file..

well, I got GREAT close ups of this layout:

This froggy is the cutest, he can be found in the Rainy Day Critters file.. I love Lisa's cutting files because they can all be cut in layers.. I used the face and hands from the rainy froggy :)
for the banner of flowers, I created that using the banner strip from the Simple Banner Shapes cutting file, the flowers and leaves are from the Flower Assortment Cutting file..
I also used some free fonts to create the title phrase..

Here is one of the dresses from the Dress Up Girl Pink Dress cutting file
I decided to add a little ribbon trim to the bottom and stickles to edges of the layers..

The hangers I used are from the Mommy To Be cutting file. I did have to do a little cutting  using the cutting tool in the designer Edition of SIL software to separate the hanger from the baby clothes :)

close up of my little baby girl.. 
She is about 2 yrs old in this photo and she just turned 25 yrs old a few days ago.. 
Where does the time go?..

and then the cute little girl and her pet rabbit..LOL
The cute little girl can be found in the Dress Up Girls Cutting file
and the cute little bunny is in the Forest Critters cutting file.

for my cute little butterflies, I wanted them to actually look as if they were hover over the layout and so, grabbed some brown craft wire, twirled a piece of it around a paint brush handle and then used some foam tape to attach it to the back of the butterflies :)  I tucked the other end under the flowers to hide it..
Those cute butterflies can be found in the Spring Garden cutting file, the mushroom is in the Forest Critters cutting file and the flowers and leaves are in the Flower Assortment cutting file..

Whew... LOL  That was a lot .. 
It took me a few days to put this layout together but it was so worth the hard work, I really enjoyed spending that time just concentrating on my project instead of whats for dinner or if the laundry needs to be put away..LOL  I'm sure you can relate..

So, we have some blog candy for this hop and it is as follows:
