Sweet golden inspiration !

***My Blog giveaway is still OPEN.... pls see previous post here ........ends March 17 ***

first of all , much , many thanks , deep thanks  to  dear Lynette , in South Africa, 
for letting me scrap one of her precious little treasures in life here.  

I always wondered how I would scrap if I had blonde kiddos.
 ( nope mine aren't blonde yet - maybe when they're adults ?! lol  & I only have 2 - 
other kidlets that you oftentimes see in my layouts are my many nieces & nephews )

Would  I scrap any differently   - anyway I'll let you be the judge of this one for now ! 

Recently I got hold of a bunch of different Bazzill white cardstock 
that has spot lamination on them - different designs . 
I knew if I misted on the laminated design it  would resist the mist - 
but you have to wipe the mist off the design as I discovered with this layout. 
I used 3 different colors of blue on here but you're mainly seeing the Jazz Blue GM i think . 

The new Webster's Pages Lullaby Lane, which has delightful images of children on some of the papers,
 came to mind when I first saw Lynette's pics. 
But somehow in the course of piecing this design together it just didn't occur to me to add some in . 
I used some new baby blue crochet trim by American Crafts for the lower border & Prima lace for the upper one. 
Also added touches of Shimmerz Blingz in turquoise on the white Prima rose & on the cardstock.

Layout design is inspired by Sketch Inspiration #114. 

Overall, I was happy with how this turned out even if it was on the simple side for me. ;)

I love every detail of this layout. I love the yellow and blue together. I have never heard of bazzil that has resist on it and makes pretty pictures when you glimmer mist is beautiful.
