Journaling says: I'll be honest, after I had your brother Fox I desperately wanted my next baby to be a girl. I hoped and prayed and prayed some more and my wish came true! Although no one would ever give me a definitive 100% so when you were born one of the first questions I asked was if you were really a girl :) You are!

How to: Trim the edges of a robin's egg blue cardstock sheet with scalloped scissors then straight/zigzag stitch it to a cream cardstock layout base; leave the thread ends long. Splatter gold and shimmer mist across the layout. Water down bookbinding glue, drop it across the layout using a paintbrush, smear some glue between the drops, sprinkle the drops with gold glitter, shake off the excess, then let it dry completely. Check out the tutorial by Rahel Menig to see how to make glitter splatter. Make a 7" circle and trim it into fifths, cover each piece with strips of patterned paper, trim the excess, back the curved edge of each piece with crocheted trim, then adhere the wedges in a star shape on the layout; stitch around the edges using gray thread. Add a photo to the center then embellish with stickers, a badge, and layered flower embellishments. Add a title and write journaling around the star.
