Stuck?! Creative Team - Smile

Thanks for joining me today as I share a page for the
Stuck Sketches Creative Team.

The background paper is from Blue Fern,
Ombre dreams collection, “Ginger’s dreams”
The gold striped vellum at the back, is an older piece
by Crate Paper, “Open book”

I found the angle a little challenging to begin with,
but love the finished look of the off centre page.

The embossed heart is by Scrapmatts CB1071 Hearts 04
The little kitty flair is an oldie from October Afternoon.

The chipboard word is from Scrapmatts, CB6115 Assorted Words 28  
and the flair is from Studio Fourteen 40.

The journalling is on the back of the page and it reads:-

When you come to spend the day with us, you are always in a happy mood; eager to get into my craft supplies and make "Art". This can be anything from cutting and pasting, punching, splashing water colours around, misting through stencils, or experimenting with texture paste. You have a good eye for detail and design, often combining your favourite colours; pink, purple and silver, to make pretty cards for Mummy. You especially like anything sparkly and glittery, so I like to be well stocked up with Rhinestones and Pearls.
I enjoy our play times together and will miss you
when you have to go to school everyday.
