Creating this layout was a delightful experience because of the lovely BO BUNNY "Father Christmas" collection  and the lovely embellishments used! 

Included in the embellishments are MAYA ROAD Vintage Findings, "Grandma's Doilies" and "Paw Paw's Doilies",  Let It Snow Kraft (snowflake), and Chipboard Mini Alphabet, "Audrey". Topping off the embellishment list with some lovely PRIMA flowers with holly leaves, and MAY ARTS ribbon and BoBunny pearls and buttons!  
Techniques used were paper distressing, inking (TIM HOLTZ) Distress Ink (Vintage Photo), machine stitching, painting (Tim Holtz Crackle Paint) layering and border punching with the MARTHA STEWART "Ribbon Loop". A new technique that I used here was paper padding, which adds depth to to the lovely oval picture of an angelic baby on the Bo Bunny paper. First, I cut out the oval shape around the child's face and then misted it with water to get it to stretch a little. Next, I stitched and inked around the edges of the oval and cut three concentric ovals of cotton batting to place under this sweet image. Last of all, I added a cardstock back to keep everything in place before adhereing it to the page. 

Thanks to everyone for taking a peek!
