Cooking with Cricut Blogaversary Celebration Week: Day 1

Hello friends and welcome back to our continuing celebration of the 2 year Blogaversary at Cooking with Cricut! We are having a week long celebration with lots of inspiration, giveaways and freebies! Today's theme is All things Girlie! We want to see pink, and add some satin- either flowers, ribbon or fabric!! I decided to do a layout of one of my adorable girlie-girl nieces Evie. Here it is:

I decided not to go real heavy handed with the pink, but there is definitely plenty of pink in there! And the little music note ribbon is my satin. All of the papers are from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan line. I was a little late to the party on this line, but so glad I discovered it because I am now in LOVE. Wish I had some more, lol!! Here are some details:
The title is cut from Rock Princess, and is so appropriate for this sweet girl! I layered some border strips underneath the title for some added interest.
The clouds are cut with Serenade. I loved the flourishes that are cut into them. I also cut a circular swirl from Paper Lace (don't have a better way to describe that, lol!). I layered that under the photos.
I honestly did not even realize I had this adorable loopy border on my Ribbon's and Rosettes cart, but I am so glad I discovered it as there are tons of cute border images. Who needs border punches now, lol! Here is also a better look at the cute satin ribbon.
This jar is the reason I bought the Dear Lizzy papers, could they be any cuter?! Also, a new fave embellishment: spool buttons! Yay!
Thanks so much for joining in our celebration, and be sure to check back at the Cooking with Cricut blog throughout the week as there is PLENTY of inspiration to go around!!
