Process Video: Daddy's little girl is having a...


At the time this page was created, the doctor wasn't saying and inquiring minds wanted to know.  Boy or girl?  My step daughter has a little boy so a girl was the wish for most of the family.  The wish was granted.  A baby girl is due in a couple of months.

This was one of my favorite pages made for the 6x6 paper pad Scrapinar.  For the page, I used two 12x12 papers from Little Yellow Bicycles Fern and Forrest (girl collection) and the corresponding 6x6 paper pad.  The smaller scale prints worked great for many of the embellishments including the little fairy turned into a tag.

Several 6x6 papers were cut or punched to create this flower garden.  The stick pins are from an older LYB set.

When I completed the page, I asked my husband if I should put a question mark after 'little' to emphasize that we didn't know whether the baby was a girl or boy.  He suggested using a 'blue' question mark and a 'pink' question mark.  What a wonderful idea!  He said "Why don't you use a pink sticker and a blue question mark sticker, if you have them?"  If I have them... Ha, ha, ha!

So here is the video that goes through the layout process on YouTube or here:

And here is the sketch:
