Ellie & Ella

***For the Made with Love Blog Hop click here - just a couple more days to hop!

I've been wanting to scrap this photo for a long time, and finally got around to it this week. 

Ella is Ellie's bestie from preschool.  The girls are always so excited to see one another, and I know Ellie misses Ella.  Ellie's class is doing a Post Office unit at school right now, and Ellie came home with some 'mail' that we need to send Ella yesterday.

For this layout I did a little digging through my supplies to come up with just the right mix of products/embellishments.  The squares are patterns from CTMH's new Chantilly collection, my favorite from the new idea book.  I stitched just inside each one to give it a quilted look.  I also stitched around the vellum mat, and to attach the brad which is from the AC Chap collection.

I added some doilies from Curtsey Boutique and my other current crush, enamel dots which are holding up a bit of vellum banner from Crate's Acorn Avenue collection.  The Friends decorative brad is from the Chantilly workshop on the go, and I used one of the periods from the thickers used for the title as a bookend for the decorative brad.

I'm going to link this up to the current Studio Calico challenge (create a project with a quilted look) and Cocoa daisy challenge (use 5 or more different patterns). 

Thanks for coming by, hope your week is going well!
