A Sweet Day-Dream (MME Layout)

Do you know that My Mind’s Eye and Gossamer Blue are holding a contest for a guest designer?
The details are HERE.
I made this layout to enter into the contest:
I wanted to create a cool but dreamy feel to match my little boy’s far-off look – so I added lots of shiny droplets, tone-on-tone stars, and some clouds. Two of the clouds came from a doily sticker that I cut in half, and the larger cloud is a chipboard piece that I added White Liquid Pearls to:
The stitching at the top of the page has one little kiss stitched on top:
And I used a woodgrain stamp from the ‘Miss Caroline – Dolled Up’ collection to add an extra texture to the left of the journaling, I think it echoes the pattern on the ground in the photo, and it keeps the layout boyish, balancing out the other delicate details:
The journaling reads:
You are usually charging about and getting into mischief, so I was glad to capture this rare moment of you sitting still, on the end of a playpark slide, staring into space.
I wish you could tell me what your day-dream was about – I hope it was sweet and lovely. I’m sure you’ll have many more day-dreams to come, but I don’t mind you running around and being boy-ish in the meantime!
I hope I’ve managed to make a page that captures the sweet, still moment. We don’t get many of them round here!

I’ll be back in a couple of days with some Counterfeit Kit layouts,
