It is such a happy day when a child discovers the fun of reading!  There is so much to learn, so many places to explore, and so much fun to be had!  Both of these girls love a good fairy tale with dragons, knights, kings, and of course a delightful princess!  My daughter loves to read to her little girl and inspire her to read on her own.

I started my background with gelatos and a baby wipe.  My script was done by adding Orange and Blush ink to some homemade texture paste.  The stencil is from Bo Bunny.  The heart and title were cut from Artbooking cartridge.  I wanted the title to have some shine, so I heat embossed it.

The CS's are from BoBunny and CTMH.  I embellished with the lined library card and sparkle flourishes from CTMH, Prima flowers, and BoBunny gems/pearls.  The jute was from my stash and colored with Prima Color Blooms Glistening Waves.

This LO is off to the following challenges:

Rochelle Spears May Tic Tac Toe:  Jute, Flower, Line Paper

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge:  Use a Cricut die cut and flowers

Stuck On U Sketches:  Die Cut Challenge:  Mothers:  This is a picture of my daughter and her very special girl.

  2. Well done! You came up with several items for each letter and created a beautiful layout! Thanks for joining us at Scrap Our Stash!

  3. Visiting from Fantabulous Cricut. Like the layout & photos. My daughter started liking to read when young and still likes to read. She prefers an actual book and not a tablet so you can turn the pages. When she was younger & still now she has reread the Harry Potter books which she can read one in one day and comprehend what she read. When she was going to college each yr she would take yet another Rubbermaid container of pleasure reading books.
