Hannah- fishing

This is a layout I made for a small challenge group I am in.  The challenge was to choose one of the 3 given sketches and make a double mirror image layout.

 This is my youngest grand daughter who loves fishing and just about any other thing she can spend time doing with Daddy.  I cannot believe how small she was and how fast time goes by.  Back in 2004, my family surprised me with a camping trip in honor of my 50th birthday.  To some this may not seem that special but my hubby hates camping and he was the one that planned it all!  When I think about it, it still amazes me.  Anyway, little Hannah was a very dedicated fisherman this day and was so happy when she caught her first fish.  When we got back to camp that evening, she was just as excited to eat her catch too.

 I am trying to learn to use stamped images for my scrap books also but not too sure I am happy with that idea.  I do wish the little Tilda stamp was a bit larger for this page.  The little fish is a Hanglar stamp.  I do not know why I neglected to sew on this layout as I usually do!  I used my CE to cut the flourishes, a MS border punch, nesties and then my new Whimsy die.  Finished things off with inking the edges and added stickles to the flourishes.  The little fish charm is out of my older stash that I am trying to use!

Thanks so much for stopping by and may God always bless each of you.
