Pinterest inspiration for my layout.

OK, onto my layout....Well I started out with Sketch, Tag & Twine.
LOL, laugh out loud because I tore my hair out this morning trying to get that line to work.
SOOOOO, I went with Tag, 3 or more Photos and Embossing.
I have a very strong disclaimer here, if you didn't already know
It's a Girl layout and LOADS of pink.

I created a Banner for the Baby Gender reveal while I was in WA in July
So I used most of the pieces off the banner to create this layout.

Like I said earlier, I used most of the pieces from the Pink & Blue banner
that I created for the Gender Reveal of our first grandchild.
I was hoping that the baby was going to be a little girl and after much waiting
it was announced that we were going to grandparents to a lil girl baby.

I used Melon Mambo cardstock for the Banners stamped with retired baby stamps.
Basic White for the Tags on the banners,
inside the tags I have left for journalling
Firstly I cut the tags and then ran them through Dotty Heart Mini embossing folders.
Stamped all the elephants from Elephant Parade Cling Stamp set.
I used some NON SU cardstock for the grass, balloon and mouse & peanuts.
I stamped the Made with Love banners from Celebrate with Tags Cling Stamp set. 

Under the Melon Mambo Banners I put 2 of photos of Lil Miss E from her 20 week scan.
She is going to be a little thumb sucker like her Mummy, she was sucking her thumb
and waving hello to her Mum and Dad while the scan was being done.

I used so many new products from the Annual &  June-Dec Mini catalogue on this layout...
I decided to
use Celebrate with Tags Heart stamp on the pink and white floral background which can be found in the Awash In Beauty DSP pack.
The other DSP is from the Hostess pack you can earn in the Annual catalogue.
It can be found on page and it is called Design A Daydream DSP....
Lots of designs to choose from, I needed something with Petal Pink to tie in with the balloon.
I used both of the Dotty Heart Mini embossing folders on this layout.
I used the same one as I did for the photo mats as I did for the Melon Mambo hearts
that are scattered around on the layout. The Die-cut Hearts are from Celebrations Tags dies.
You might not be able to see them BUT there are very cute Heart Pearls scattered over the page which come in Milky White, Glossy White and  Pearl White and 2 sizes.
The Ribbon Bows at the end of the banners are the gorgeous Glittered Organdy Ribbon.
