Before I share my card I wanted to share the digital image 010 I chose to play with. It is from Sherri Baldy's Little Dimples Series and the first Series I saw and got me hooked into all these precious Big Eye Big Head Dolls. For my Vintage design I decided to cut out the top portion of her image when I printed her.  I want to be sure you see her full body because she is so adorable. Don't you love her shoes, her hair, her headband....OK...everything about her is adorable.

Meet Me at The Scrappers Corner

Hello Fellow Crafters,

The Christmas holidays are near and we are all busy with preparing the house with Christmas love and music in the hopes of capturing precious memories and quality time with the ones we love.  This is also a tough time of year for people feeling lonely missing their loved ones no longer here or those that just don't have anyone to be with. I hope our Thanksgiving holiday sentiments of gracious times spreads throughout the coming days.

Today I am sharing some sweet memories on a Scrapbook page with a Photo of my Grand Daughter. I added a My Besties/Summer Swing digital image I colored with Spectrum Noir and hair with Derwent pencils. I thought this image was perfect as my Grand Daughter is laying on her tummy swinging cheerfully smiling.

What inspired me to get into putting my scrapbook layouts together is the December Monthly Challenge over at ''Meet at the Scrappers Corner'.  THEME: Scrapbook layout+Photo+My Besties image.
I have had this particular Anna Griffin album for a few years when it went on sale and now I am finally going to start filling it. So I will be sharing  several scrapbook layouts throughout the coming days and/or months. I love all of Anna Griffin products. She inspired me to add more is more with her beautiful 3D flowers. stickers.
So here you go my sweet memory of the this particular day me and my Grand Daughter had while were at the park.
I would like to enter this paper project into the following challenge:
Bimini Moose Challenge - Anything Goes Optional Lots of Green
Scrapbook Stamp Society #56 - anything goes
Don't forget to come by and visit Meet at the Scrappers Corner Monthly Challenge. We are graciously Sponsored by Sherri Baldy/My Besties. Come join in and enter your paper projects featuring your favorite My Besties.
