Sweet Little Lizzie

This layout is featured on's online magazine! (Nov 2010) Please go to for all the details!

My cousin's sweet little daughter, Elizabeth just recently celebrated her 3rd birthday. She is such a prissy, sassy, and feisty little girl. She is the epitome of all things girlie. When I sat down to create her birthday card, I knew I wanted to do something extra special. (Her mother is a scrapbooking diva extraordinaire, so it is really hard to top her beautiful creations!)

Here are the details....
The photo I used was one I took of Ms. Elizabeth on Easter a year ago, just prior to her 2nd birthday. To give the image a vintage feel, I first printed it out in color. Then, I printed directly over the image in grey scale. It muted everything a bit, while still maintaining the "sugar" pink of her tulle dress. Next, I cut out Elizabeth and mounted her on a new photo that was printed in grey scale only. The frame I love. I found it at Target around Valentine's Day. The pink damask pattern is great. As far as the pennants go, I created them using different papers from my stash. I don't know all the brands, but basically some of the pennants were created from scrapbook paper, from flocked specialty paper, & Martha Stewart gift wrap. I used CTMH rub-ons for the HAPPY ELIZABETH. The BIRTHDAY is from Stampin' Up. I created a crown for Lizzie using a stamp from Autumn Leaves, Talking In Circles. To give it some extra pizazz, I used silver embossing powder and cut it out. In addition to these goodies, I used red/white twine by Raffit for the pennant string. Also, at the bottom of the frame, I used a CTMH stamp from the Just For Girls set. I then heat embossed it with black Staz-on and shimmery clear powder. I hope you enjoy, and thanks for looking.
Please be sure to check out my cousin's amazing creations as well. She is the one I mentioned above at
