Sweet Dreams


Two days ago we had the family Easter dinner. Last time we had a family lunch my two cousins were still pregnant. This time it was the first time that we had together the two new family members, my nephews. All night long I kept thinking "it seems like yesterday when we were the kids of the family, now we have become the grown ups..." Time flies!

So... another layout today, this time of Nikolas:

The idea came to me as soon as I saw the Challenge Me Happy latest challenge with the following inspirational photo:

Aren't the colours gorgeous? As soon as I saw it I thought of the Lawn Fawn papers that were waiting for me... so happy!

I wanted to use some photos of Nikolas sleeping, and whenever I would look at them I would start singing Sweet Dreams by Eurythmics. (Yes, I know, the song's meaning has nothing to do, but that was what was coming on my mind!). So when I saw The Studio Challenges latest challenge that asks us to prepare a layout using the title of a song, I new what I would scrap.

So Lawn Fawn papers and stamps... of course I couldn't resist the paper piecing. For that I used the small paper pad (6x6) since I wanted to small motifs. I highlighted the title with Glossy Accents and I added a few Stickles details - he may be a baby boy, but dreams can be sparkly, right?

I cut the sun and the clouds on the left top with my Silhouette SD and highlighted them with faux stitching (strange, right? hehehe)

I hope you like it!
