What a Doll! @ Creative Embellishments!

Hello!  I am joining you today with a layout I did after my niece slept over -her 1st night EVER away from her parents!  We ended our time together at the toy store buying a new "dolly".  Marrah is a living doll herself!

 I popped the photo up with a piece of foam to allow for "tucking".

Social HashTags:  I used inks to color and Mister Huey's opaque white mist.
Distressed Text Stamp: I used this in the background with white ink.
Branches: I used white ink, cut them and place sporadically
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
