"Preston Layout"

Wow, I went to bed at 4am this morning and got up at 9am.  And Started scrapping.

 I found this beautiful sketch "MoJo Monday" (I know, its Tuesday, but its never to late to work from a wonderful Sketch). I found this on Flying Unicorns Blog.

I love all the details in this sketch.  And here is my take on this sketch with a layout I made today.  This is my grandson Preston,  he is 6 days old in this picture on Feb 13, 2011

I love the colors of this paper,  It matches his blanket with the greens and browns and just a little hint of blue.

Here is a close up of the lace doily I made for the corner.  The center is a bead center piece from Recollections at Michael's. The border is a border punch by Fiskars,  Trisket A Tasket.

These are some flowers from one of my MCS kits.  The one in the center is BoBunny Petals,  And I inked the edges.  The branch leaves is a sizzix die.  And brown sheer ribbon.
This adorable bead butterfly is by Recollections from Michaels.  I love how this turned out.  Its so pretty with all the flowers and butterfly on there.

Things used 

MME "Tres Belle" Pattern papers
MME  "Lush" Ribbon, Chipboard flock letters, Rhinestone brads
Fiskars border punch "Trisket A Tasket"
Recollections Butterfly, Bead Center
BoBunny Petals Flower
Sizzix Branch Die
Other things: Lace, Sewing machine, Score tape, zots, blue, Ink

I hope you enjoyed my newest layout.
