Dylan and Grandma

We took a road trip to Orlando in October to meet our new granddaughter Dylan Macie.  
I spent as much time as I could just holding her,  there is nothing better than holding a baby.
She was born June 10th so we waited 5 months till everything calmed down before we planned
our trip there.   It was perfect timing.

For this layout I used the January 15th sketch at "Stuck?!Sketches"   I really liked the look of it and the chance to mix some different patterns, plus got to get into my doily stash too.    I just pulled out my 'baby' drawer of goodies and started pulling out papers to use and then found my embellishments there too, with the exception of the flower, it was in my fabric flower stash.    Then of course if you know my style, I usually mat all my papers.  I decided to go with another shade of pink card stock for the picture instead of the black I did on everything else.

There is also another January challenge going on at "Lasting Memories".   They have a new challenge every week and you have till the end of them month to enter.    The Jan. 11th challenge is #224 "Captured Moments' and I think this layout works perfectly as this was the first time I got to hold our new Granddaughter.   Such a special time.

So check out the details for the challenge  HERE  for "Lasting Memories"
