A multi-challenge layout

Hi Folks!!
I have been meaning to do a bit more scrapbooking. Looking forward to keeping my creations rather than giving my cards away. (How greedy am I!) and.... I have discovered some cracking scrapbook challenge blogs that work along the same lines as the card challenge blogs that I am more used to. Thought I'd give it a go. For this 12 x 12 page I followed this weeks challenge on A Page From My Sketch Book, by Liz Weber. As you can see I haven't strayed too much from the sketch this being my first go at a scrapbook challenge.
The papers, grand adhesion's and chipboard stickers are K&C0. The 'mimi' cardstock stickers are Papermania. I cut the bracket using my Cricut Expression and Storybook cart. The blue die cut flowers are a Boss Cut die that I have. I finished off with some ribbon from my stash.
The photo's are of my daughter Isabelle (who we lovingly call Mimi) taken back in Nov 2006. She's one of my twins and found it funny that there were two pictures of her on a layout and not one of her and one of her twin brother Ben.
I am also entering this layout in The Saturday Challenge where it's 'anything but a card' week. Over on Lili of the Valley challenge blog it's an anything goes week. Also it's the first week over on Charisma Cardz Challenge the theme is 'pink'. I'm hoping there is enough pink on my creation to qualify.
Have a great Monday evening!

There are no ends to your talents Sandra, your layout is so beautiful that I'm almost tempted to have a go at one, bearing in mind our conversation about me not taking to it! I really want to have a go, you've inspired me so much. I love the fresh colours, gorgeous flowers, and design but of course most of all the stunning pictures of 'Mimi'. What she said about having her own page was so cute. Hope we can meet up soon, what you up to these days? C x
