Scrapbook Page of Myself as a Little Girl - VC_Rocks & Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge 204

Challenge #04 at VC_Rocks was to make an 8 X 8 scrapbook page of myself at any age.  I used the sketch challenge at Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge 204 here to design the layout.
The scrapbook page below is myself at age 6.  Wasn't I cute?  The picture was taken in Holland just before we emigrated.  The dress I am wearing was made by my mother.

Stamp: Charming
Inks: Blushing Bride reinker and marker, Basic Gray, Crumb Cake
Papers: Basic Gray, Lap of Luxury Designer Paper, Basic Black, Natural White
Accessories: White paper daisies, Vintage Brads, rhinestone brads, Rhinestones, Photo corner punch, 5/8" Basic Gray stain ribbon, 1/8" Very Ganilla Taffeta ribbon, Beveled Windowpane,

Four of the paper daisies were colored by soaking them in water and Blushing Bride reinker.  The others were sponged with Crumb Cake.  After they were dry, the edges were sponged with Basic Gray, and then pinched to create more interest.
