Brave Girl

As I challenge myself to use up supplies of papers and other items I have collected over the years, here's another paper line bought and not used. I love the whimsical look of this paper line by Basic Grey called "Oh Baby Boy" and "Oh Baby Girl" It is so fitting to use with this photo of my Grand-daughter to tell the story of her acceptance of wearing a band-aid for her owee.
I love to doodle around the large punch-out letters that came with the paper line. I even created a look of a Band-aid to add next to the journaling.
To create the water rings look as part of the background, I used a little green colored spray ink on the rim of a small jar and applied it to the paper. I then stamped small star bursts here and there. Also stamping small heart boarder around the edges. Everything else was done with my doodling to create a little interest around the pieces.
I tried to keep this layout as flat as possible to put it in my album. There are a few raised pieces on small wooden elements like the stars and hearts added here.
One pack of paper broke into and used and now many more to go. Join me on this journey to use the unused. Come join me at the facebook challenge Laurie D. Moore's 2014 Challenge, Unused items
I've also entered this layout in the January Challenge at Once Upon A Sketch
Thanks for coming by. Have a great day,

I love how you have updated the look of these papers... I think I have them somewhere too. The doodling around the edges changes the whole look and I love the story. Thanks for playing along with us at OUAS this month. Please load your layout onto our OUAS FB page for another chance to win.
