14 hours to go

Well there's only about 14 hours to go and my sweet baby will be ONE! I can't believe how fast this year has flown - the fact I'm back at work shows just how quick it's gone! I truly hope the years start to slow down and she doesn't grow up too quick - it's hard enough watching her big sister growing up! I found this photo of Jas and Sophia sharing a funny moment:
Sophia was only 3 months old and already a delight to us all!

For the layout I used Doodlebug pp, I drew and cut out the shape in brown Bazzill and then doodled around the edge. I roughly trimmed some white paper to act as a mat behind the photo. The ribbon says "laugh", "giggle", "smile" and I knotted it in several places then applied a line of tape behind it to adhere it to the cardstock. The buttons are done the same way then I added some bling to their centres. The silver rings are actually Making Memories Tag Maker Rims - Jas bought me a packet as a present one year - but didn't realise you need the tool first to make them! So I just used pliers to flatten them and then stitched them to the layout. The speech bubbles were cut by hand from some pp. If you look closely at the red ribbon you will see a transparent bird.

Please note the clear things you see at the bottom is the plate stand holding up the layout.
