Growing up is quite hard - DD is the sweetest big sister but at the same time it is not always easy for her. Having been by herself for 6 years, the change has been a dramatic one. No wonder that sometimes she is trying to define herself again and again, testing all limits and exploring all boundaries. Hence the title BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. She is a very smart, sweet, outgoing, energetic girl and we love her endlessly.

I based this layout on Get Creative June 15th sketch.

I followed it with just a few exceptions.

Here are some details.
For the doily, I punched a circle, stamped on it with white ink.

I stitched around the sides and poked little holes following the paper's pattern for increased texture.
I fussy cut the little garland on top.

And combined some lace with a string.

Just a quick photo, showing DS favorite spot. He loves to be carried around and refuses the stroller.

Thanks for stopping by!
All the best,
