SIT #57

It's so good to have you visiting for Sketches in Thyme's Challenge #57!
So, let's just get right to my take.  Shall we?
I started this layout by adhering my photos, as well as a pink and yellow, journaling card, in a grid design, to a piece of yellow, lace, patterned paper, just before adhering it near the bottom right corner of my gray, ledger, patterned paper; hand-stitching, with white string, a scalloped edge around its top and right sides; and anchoring it with two strips of pattern paper, one of which was torn across its bottom edge, and both of which were anchored with gray-threaded, straight and zig-zag stitches, respectively.
I then created the "Remember" title with a pink, adhesive transfer.
The doilies were cut from patterned paper; adhered in their respective locations, some with foam tape; dressed up with a couple of Cricut-cut, from Whisper White cardstock, doilies; and further embellished with pink and yellow buttons, laced with white string.
A yellow, "No. 5", journaling card; pink, "SWEET" baby" die-cut; and row of yellow ducks, prep the page for my journaling, which reads, LOVE these precious pics taken to help us remember your very first taste of veggies.  You couldn't have been happier.
A gray, scalloped label, upon which I wrote, Absolutely Beautiful, May 9, 2009, completes the look.
Color inspiration for this layout came from The Studio's October 2nd Layout Challenge.
