Beautiful Girl

This weeks challenge over at Lasting Memories was difficult for me.  The challenge is to use pink, ribbon and lace on your layout.  Pink and ribbon easy peasy, lace, well that through me for a loop.  I don't have lace and how was I going to incorporate it into a layout.  Well, as I was clearing out my daughters summers clothes I came across an old pair of leggings with lace on the bottom.  You see where I'm going with this don't ya.  I cut the lace off, she didn't need them and they had a hole so you could call this recycling to suit mommy's crafting addiction.  The layout I made is not typical of my scrapbook layouts.  It's more shabby chic or vintage.  I usually stick to a clean, simple Cricut die cut look.  Sorry I don't know the scrapbooking terms for all of this so I'm totally making this up as I go.  Anyway, my layout is not my usual style but sometimes we need a challenge to get us to do somethin' a little different.  My layout is missing the photo because I haven't ordered a copy yet but I have a beautiful picture of my daughter from the summer.  She is in my parents backyard smelling flowers.  So pretty!  One of those pictures that makes here look so calm and innocent.  Yeah right!  

 The mat for the photo looks so red in the pictures but it actually matches the deep pink of the base paper.   Two things I love about this layout that most won't notice,  the green paper has music notes on it which goes perfectly with my title "You make my heart sing".  Second, one of the hexagons had room for some  journaling and it said "happy"on it.  My daughter certainly makes my heart sing and she is happy and girly like this layout.
