Layout for 123 Get Scrappy February: Love My Little Bee

Time to reveal a new 123 Get Scrappy! challenge grid:

This grid would have provided elements for a nice Valentine's Day themed layout (diagonal line with Red background - Plaid Pattern - Hearts), but I decided to use the middle vertical line with Hand Drawn Stitches, Plaid Pattern and The Word LOVE. Here's what I come up with:

The photo is one of my favourites from several years back. The teachers at her daycare arranged a spring costume party in which the kids had the chance to get a face painting. My little bee took this opportunity without any hesitation, and even if it took us quite a while to wash her face in the evening I think she loved her spring look :)

The bees are just hand-cut and decorated with heat embossed strips. The yellow honeycomb pieces are die-cut using *this* Sizzix die, and just simply glued down on the background.
The white lace flowers are decorated with gold coloured bead seeds.

I hope you get inspired by the great challenge grid and play along! For more information about the challenge and for viewing all the gorgeous DT projects please follow this link.
Happy crafting!
