So Adorable - Galadrial at 2 months old

After recently scrapping a photo of Lucy at 5 weeks of age, I just had to scrap one of her gorgeous MaMa (our sweet Miss Gali) at a very young age too!  
Galadrial was only 2 months old in this photo.....and she was (and still is) so adorable!

The colors and print in this beautiful Maja Design paper were my inspiration. I decorated the flower buds chippie to resemble hydrangea.  They are embossed with Lindy's Stamp Gang color Spring Leaf Chartreuse.

I generously sprayed the front and back sides of heavy weight watercolor paper.  One side with Prima Color Bloom Summer Sky and the other side with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst color Bachelor Button Blue, which is amazingly close to the color of Gali's eyes in the photo! Using a mini flower punch, scoring each petal, adding a pearl to the center of most of them, then randomly placing the two tones of blue flowers and layering some with foam dots for dimension, the make-shift hydrangeas came to life. 

The mini script title letters are inked with ColorBox "Wild Hare".  The bottoms are touched with LSG Bachelor Button Blue.  Each letter was topped with Glossy Accents to give them some shine.  For pops of color, I placed a few butterflies from my old K&Company Susan Winget stash. 

Cardstock in gray, baby blue and pastel green were punched and layered for the photo background papers. 
A piece of cardboard under the gray piece raised it up for dimension.

I also added a punched dimensional piece I created with a heart in pastel green since the blue colors were so dominate on the layout.  I stamped the heart and heat embossed it in LSG Silver Moon Sapphire.
Just a little bit of stenciling for added texture; punching the sides of the layout
and adding some pearls completed this layout.
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!  Lisa >^..^<
