The Bold and Beautiful collection from 49 and Market is filled with pinks and grays and just enough small touches of red to make a perfect background for this photo of my granddaughter, taken by my daughter-in-law last November.
The design itself was inspired by the sketch by Kim Heard that was included in the June kit from Très Jolie.

I began by adhering the photo to a piece of packaging to give it dimension and stability. I inked the edges and then set it aside while I worked on the background layers.
I was reminded by the details of the sketch that I still had some vintage post cards and sheet music that I bought during an afternoon of antique shopping in Michigan with a couple of friends back in 2014. (Yes, I do hoard scrapbooking supplies, and yes, it certainly pays off once in a while!) While I was digging through the bin, I discovered the remains of a package of ephemera that would go perfectly with the rest of my page. I added a laser cut shape from 49 and Market (torn in half to stretch it out) and arranged and glued it onto another piece of packaging and then onto my paper.
Before adding the photo, I wrapped and tied it with a length of thin twine.

I wanted a few of my flowers to match the dress in the photo, so I gave one of the small pieces a few sprays of Color Bloom mist and allowed it to dry; it was a perfect match… Meanwhile, I selected a few more flowers and arranged them until I was satisfied and glued the larger pair down. I colored the remaining small blooms and added them after they dried.

Kim included a yard of the most gorgeous lace in the kit. I trimmed off a small amount off and cut it into several pieces that I used to tuck in around the flower clusters. Lastly, I added a wood clock to the side.

The top corner was embellished with a few layers of the laser cut images from the Shapes collection.
