Playing Doctor

I have really enjoyed finding the Frosted Designs website.  I saw this sketch today and really like all the possibilities it offered.  So I ran with it - maybe a little farther than I was supposed to, but it is the basic idea.  That is the purpose of a sketch, anyway, is to be a starting point!
These pics of my daughter playing doctor with her poppy were just too cute to resist, so they were perfect for this page!  I stuck with only two pictures, I just couldn't fit another one in there.  I used a floral ribbon from American Crafts as a border between the pictures and the strips below.  The papers are the Baja Breeze pieces from the Nursery Suite, red glimmer paper, and a scrap from the Candy Cane Lane paper pack.   (Would you believe those were all scraps?)  I decide to frill up the bottom even more by alternating strips of red glimmer paper with the border of candy cane lane paper.  I made a fringe with the paper and then spritzed the entire fringe with Cherry Lemonade Glimmer Mist.  I finished it off with a vintage cut out from Pretty Little Studio, some letter stickers from Making Memories, and a couple of flowers from Jolee's. 
According to my DH, it is just a little too frilly....ah, well, it's my page.  I like it!
