Here is the sketch
I love this photo of my daughter when she was a baby. 
I love how this layout came out, even though i don't have a sunburst paper, which give me an idea to be creative. So, I used washi tape for masking to create a sunburst background, then i sprayed the page using heidi swapp color shine primerose and mint green. And the papers that i used is from echo park and my mind's eye that its been in my stash. And also added some prima chipboards ticket, bird and the flower behind the pink one. And those clouds on top is from my little shoe box paper that i fussy cuts.
here is the title i used basicgrey letter stickers and american crafts thickers by amy tangerine and dear lizzy.
