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!!

Hey, Lori. I'm just dropping back in the ask you if you'd be interested in being on the team of assisting with selecting the contributor award participants? I want at least 4 o 5 team players? I'll be getting ready to announce it in the next day or so. Let me know!!! If so, I'm hoping "our" team can start working out some detail on how we'll do it. Open to suggestions, of course.

Let me know! I'm hoping this will be so much fun!
