Hello ladies, it's Jeaunes here with a layout that I made using the Simply Sweet kit. 

My mom is a teacher and years ago when I was about three, the students from the Home Economics class needed to make dresses for little girls.  Well I was one of those, they made me this lovely pink, white and blue dress and in the end we even had a mini fashion show.  There were two pictures taken at the event, the picture in this layout is one of them.  I have always been a very shy little girl and love to keep to myself, especially in a big crowd.  As you can see in this photo, I was waiting patiently for my turn :-)

When I saw the Dreamy collection from Heidi Swapp in the Simply Sweet kit, I just knew it was the perfect match in terms of colour for this picture.  I used both sides of the Life is Beautiful paper as well as the back of the Ticket to Ride and Dreamy Dots papers for the small flags.  The hearts and title I got from the Dreamy word stickers.  To finish the layout off I added hand stitching at the top, as well as some brads, buttons and bling I had in my stash.  I also included some stamping at the bottom of the photo.  

Here are some close-up photos of the detail.  

The stamping under the photo is the dictionary definition of believe:  "to have confidence in the truth, the existence or the reliability of something, although without absolute proof that one is right in doing so."

Grab yourself a May kit if you haven't already...and if you have, you'll know how much fun it is to use these gorgeous papers from Heidi Swapps!!
