Maybe it's because I share my name with a bird, but I seem to be drawn to all the little birdie papers and embellishments that are out right now. When I first saw the singing bird patterned paper (it's by Scribble Scrabble), I couldn't wait to use it, and it really pulled out the colors in the dress my daughter is wearing in these photos. So I decided to do a little "singing" theme and tie in some old sheet music in the tops of the brads (yes, I used the i-Top!).
The layout is based on a Page Maps sketch, and I actually stayed pretty true to it. I love that big bracket shape, and the dotted paper was the perfect contrast for the bright colors in the layout.
