Island of the Blue Dolphins

I had some time to scrap today, and I wanted to scrap another pic of Morgan from our recent trip to the park. I used the gorgeous "Prairie Chic" collection by Bo Bunny. I also used some of my Flourish With a Bling flourishes and gems and pearls.

The two dies I used are from Cheery Lynn Designs: Nautical Wheeler Doily and Dancing Doily Lace Border. I'm entering this layout in the Cheery Lynn Designs "Bling It Up" Challenge #78. I used a ton of bling here :)

I am also entering it in the Bo Bunny layout challenge for May - to use a book title as your LO title. I used:

And here's my layout, "Island of the Blue Dolphins". I did machine stitching around the photo and around the edge of the blue paper, and then added gesso to the pink and blue flourishes, as well as to the doily.

My daughter also made a couple cards using my Cheery Lynn dies, and I wanted to share them. This first one is using Bo Bunny paper and "Nautical Wheeler" doily by Cheery Lynn, as well as a Paper Nest Dolls stamp. This one is for her music teacher, and since he's a guy, she wanted it to be more manly:

Her second card is for her friend's birthday, also using a Paper Nest Dolls stamp, and the "French Pastry" doily by Cheery Lynn:
