Hush Little Baby ~ Gypsy Challenge
This week's Gypsy challenge was using a Nursery Rhyme theme and stretching and flattening your images by un-highlighting the aspect ratio button (looks like a chain and is located right under the width and height on the basic menu). This was challenging because I wanted to be able to use my creation. I was originally thinking about using the grandfather clock from Heritage and make a Hickory Dickory Dock page, but my youngest is probably too old for that LO!
So, I decided on this one ~ Hush Little Baby and turned it into a scrapbook page for a friend who is having a baby girl any day now. I made her the zebra diaper cake as a shower gift shown in an earlier post here.
I stretched and flattened rectangles from George to make the border around the page and the title. I used the font from A Child's Year for the title and stretched that as well. The stroller is from Designer's Calendar and the Rattle is from Stamping. Both were stretched to fit the space.
I used a little ribbon and some clear gems to finish the look. Now, we just need baby!!
