First Birthday-SOUS Die Challenge

Hello my crafting friends, happy TGIF to you all! I sure don't know where these weeks go but they sure do fly by don't they?! Well it is time for another die cut challenge over at SOUS. Our theme was a flourish. The Cricut Imagine Yummy cartridge has some cute flourishes on it, so that is what I went with for my grand-daughters first birthday pictures. I know that the picture of the orange/yellow cake doesn't go with the color scheme, but that's the cake we ate so I included it in there for her. These layouts will go to my grandchildren when they are grown or I pass. I used the Yummy cartridge for the die cuts as well as the dark brown swirl paper. I used brown Bazzil paper as my base, then my light pink paper is cut down to 11 3/4 x 11 3/4 inches, I inked the pink paper and all my die cuts with Vintage Photo distress ink. The swirl paper was printed off as a 12 x 12 sheet, I cut it in half and then added some darker pink strips on each side. My pictures on the left side of the layout have been mounted with white and then dark brown, the pictures on the right side are not mounted. I hope you will go check out the inspiration my design team sisters have for you with using flourishes. Then link up with your flourish project with us, we love when you get crafty with us! Happy crafting everyone!
