Inspired by Gigi, God's Little Princess

Sketchy Thursdays is having a Guest Design Team call, so the challenge was to use this sketch and some inspiration from reading.  I flipped the sketch to use it and got my inspiration from some of my daughter's recent favorite books, based on Gigi: God's little Princess.   She pretty much always wears pink and prances around (much like Halleigh!).  So here's the page I came up with.
You can see I went with the pink theme for the page and added a little bit of purple in for panache.  I liked the circles, but I didn't want them to all look the same. 
Here you can see where I spritzed the edges of the page with Creme Rouge Glimmer Mist and masked a few circles.  I added a few little x's like little kisses on the edges of those to make a visual triangle.  I punched several circles from the Lap of Luxury DSP that SU retired this year and distressed the edges of those.  Finally, I stamped a few circles in clear Versamark ink and heat embossed those.  I wiped off the glimmer mist and stamped a few circles in Concord Crush on top and wiped the excess ink. 
For a final little touch, I added a couple of hand-stitched hearts to the title for a little of mommy's love.  :)
