Blooming Everyday with "Nostalgia"

It's finally time to share my very first design team project for GCD Studios! I LOVE everything about GCD Studios. Their products are beautiful and I am having so much fun creating with them. I'd like to share a layout I've made using the Nostalgia collection. I just adore these papers. The colors are so vibrant, happy, and bright. This layout is 'blooming' with fun! Flowers are the perfect accent to any project. I really wanted flowers to be the center piece of my layout.

My daughter is growing everyday, much like a flower. I love the little girl she is blossoming into. That's what this layout is all about!

I cut these gorgeous 3d flowers out with my Silhouette Cameo. The papers in this collection are absolutely perfect for making realistic looking flowers. The patterns work so well! I made a visual triangle around the photo using the flowers.
