Since the subjects of the layouts are 1 & 2 year old little girls I started with Doodlebug paper. I cut the 12x12 of center, then took another inch off to use the back side. I used light pink and light blue cardstock to offset the business of the print. The 5x7 photos were matted but the b/w photos were not. Various sizes of white, pink and green button brads were used to tie the solid areas to the print. The title was cut using Cricut but since the original title was Santa Baby, I used a similar font for the "ies". The tree die cuts were made by taking a photo of the trees in the print and uploading it to Cricut. Gems were added around the title, and on the trees. Finally, a little journaling was added to the second 5x7 to emphasize how she felt.
