let's PLAY!

Hello, friends! Here is quick post of a layout I mad recently. With my cute Grand niece Baby Apphia's photos, I can' stop scrapbooking! 
let's PLAY! .
I used a new stamp called Leafy Vines (Hero Arts) for the background. It is very faint, but you can still see how the stamped background enhances the layout.
The pattern paper is from Basic Grey's Lucille Collection. I cut out the roses and used it for the border. The sentiment and swirly lines are from SRM Stickers.
Ding--->Adding hand stitching (with colored floss) enhances the design and gives the layout a homespun feel.

And see this?
I had a few publications with Hero Arts Stamps in the last year, this is the "incentive"!
I am a happy stamper :)
Thanks for stopping by!
