Beautiful Dreamer Layout

 I made this layout on National Scrapbook Day,  during the crop portion of the evening.  I love the way it turned out.  This is one of my favorite layouts that I have ever done.  Estella looks so sweet when she's sleeping.  The journaling is a portion of the Dutch lullaby, "Wynken, Blynken and Nod" by poet Eugene Field.

 I knew I wanted to create a collage of photos for this layout, but after looking at all of the bright, clashing colors of Estella's various pajamas and bedding, I decided to print them in black and white.  Now the photos look even sweeter, and the colors do not clash with the pallet of my layout.
Here is a detail shot of the upper left corner of my layout.  This shows some of the details of my journaling strips, as well as some of the patterned paper and embellishments I used.  I created the JUMBO scallops by using a 1 3/4" circle punch, and then cutting those in half and lining them up along my border.
Here is the upper right corner.  More scallops, more journaling, embellishments and you can even see some detail of the embossed patterned papers I used.

Detail shot of my title.

Lower left corner with the remainder of my journaling.  Thanks so much for looking!
