Sweet Little Girl Layout by Celes Gonzalo

Hi everybody! I’m so happy to be here and to share my first layout with you! My name is Maria Celeste Gonzalo but everybody calls me Celes. Today we are going to make a colorful and sweet layout. And my sweet goddaughter, Federica, will be the protagonist. I love making layout with her photos. This one is from an unforgettable moment that we live together…

I used one design paper and one white textured cardstock as my base. I cut around 1/2” from the sides of the paper. Before I glue both paper together, I cut some paper garlands from the design paper (373144). You have two options: 1- glue them to your base paper, 2- sew them to your base. I chose the second option because I love sewing details! I also added a paper garland to my photo. Glue/sew paper garlands: 3 on the top, 1 at the base, 1 to your photo.

Once you have all ready you can start with the most beautiful part… decoration! It’s when magic begins…

I used some ephemeras, cut some bows from the paper pad, and puffy stickers. Use all you want to decorate the layout.

As this layout is for a little girl, I wanted it to have very special details for her. I wish all her dreams come true. I’m always telling her that she has to live, enjoy every day, to dream, and that dreams DO come true. That’s why I used air balloons, rainbows, bows, and ice creams. Sweet and happy layout!

If you could see her face when she saw this! Remember to stamp or write the date and some special memories from that moment. This little girl is my everything, so I wrote all I feel for her. I hope you like this idea! See you!
