Birthday Girl

September challenge at White With 1 is a bit of a challenge for me, as I normally don't use much pink (or my boys won't like my layouts...LOL), and marshmallow is not one of my fav colors to work with,  but a challenge is  a challenge, and I just love challenges!
I also challenged myself to make a mixed media background but a pastel and stuble one, so here's what I made for this challenge, with a photo of me, on my 4th birthday:
For my lo, I used lots of stencils with modeling paste, punches, dies, mist and peral pen. I really love how soft and subtle is the background, and I also love the texture of it.
Here are some close-ups on the details:

A list of some of the products:
cardstock - American Crafts;
mist - Mister Huey's 'First Kiss';
disterss ink - Ranger TH 'Worn Lipstick';
punches: Martha Stewart (monarch butterfly & royal butterfly; punch around the page franch scroll;
stencils: Tim Holtz 'Dot Fade Layering'; The Crafter's Workshop 'Mini Quatrefoil Reversed' & 'Mini Ledger'; Prima 'Circular Lattice'.
dies: Die-namics (mini royal roses and large royal rose), Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Romantic Rectangles'; Memory Box ('Tessatina Border' & 'Virtuso Music'); Cheery Lynn Designs 'mini fanciful flourish'.
Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog. I appreciate every comment  you care to leave me :).

This is so gorgeous Libeeti! Super feminine. Because you have boys you don't get much chance of using these colours. Well, you rose to the challenge! It's beautifull. I love all the mixed media and of course the cute photo of you.
