My little Sophie turned 7 on Thursday. I took a stack of photos on her birthday (ofcourse). She looks totally adorable tight now as she has recently lost her two upper front teeth and has that toothless grin that is so characteristic of this age. This photo was one of my favourites as she looks so happy. The light was perfect as it was taken in the evening on the beach (she wanted to have a picnic on the beach and watch the sun set for her birthday tea). I used Pink Paislee resist paper for the background and I partially inked the area around my photo with pink distress stain. The layout is based on the current Sketchy Thursday's sketch. The other papers that I used are left-over scraps from various Sassafrass collections. I wanted the colours to be bright, fun and very girlie (just like my precious little girl). I completed the page with a bakers twine bow and a 'Thickers' title (these were originally white foam letters and I stained them with the same color of pink distress stain that I used for my background).
