"My Favorite Photo" - large elements layout

The photo in this layout is my absolute favorite photo of my daughter. As the journaling will tell you - I just feel like it's so 'real' and unrehearsed. It shows what a goofy and happy little girl she is. Don't forget to take pictures of the everyday instead of just 'professional' pictures. They will be the ones you cherish the most. :)
Now...onto the layout. All of the papers, journaling cards, and vast majority of embellishments are from that lovely Echo Park "Sweet Day" collection. The large flowers are by My Little Shoebox and there are even some Dear Lizzy stickers thrown into the mix. The alphas are by Bella Blvd
There are some little bits and bobs I would love to point out. First of all...that pinwheel? I made it! I'm quite proud of myself for that one. Also notice the little safety pins on each of the 'three corners'. I wanted to add a special little touch...something that added to the 'home on the range' feel of the layout. I looked in my stash but I could not find anything that I felt was 'soft' enough. A few minutes layout I went through my sewing kit and figured that the safety pins would be the perfect fit. They are probably my favorite part of the entire layout!

Thanks for reading!
