Beautiful Becky

I am no scrapper but I have a lovely photo of my beautiful 12 y.o niece Becky, taken by the talented photographer Ryan Ahern, that I've been wanting to scrap for a while now. When I saw SU's "Sweet Nothings" Simply Scrappin' kit I knew it would be perfect. I 'borrowed' the layout from a 'Creative paper' magazine that I've had for ages.

These SU kits, available in a variety of themes, are perfect for new scrappers. The only extras I used were 'Whimsical Alphabet" and 'Live Your Dream' stamp sets, both now retired unfortunately and the little damask image from the 'Lovely Letters Alphabet'. I used a Build-a-Brad, love those things. The flowers are made using flower punches (non-SU) and a 'Button Bouquet' button in Riding Hood red. I also used my new Photo Corners punch, think it will come in very handy.
I am pretty pleased with how it turned out, even if I do say so myself LOL. It is easy when the subject is so gorgeous! I'm thinking I might try a page of her brothers practicing in their band.

Thanks for dropping by,
