Hello! Crafty friends,

On that I again layered with pattern papers in different styles with distress edges and distress with vintage photo distress ink. Used cheery Lynn doily cut in half and used on side and top with distress edges.
#5. In centre I have used square MDF frame which I have covered with cosmic glitter shimmers. I have used vintage photo of a little girl in the middle of the frame.
#6 . To decorate my layout I have used itsy bitsy little birdie papercrafting medley handmade flowers,linen paper handmade roses. I love this flower kits as everything like MDF,jute doily,small flowers, flower sprays,leaves,spiral wire pollens etc . included in this kit.
#7. Finally decorated using laces, pearls,glass charms,metal charms,resin Angels,stamped butterflies and stamp sentiments from my stash.
