Smile & Enjoy Every Moment 12 x 12:

As much as I love Stampin' Up! I've always had a little difficulty scrap booking with stamps. Well, today I think I can finally say I'm over that. This morning, in the mood to do some serious stamping, I decided to tackle my Achilles heel with regards to stamps.
I found this fantastic photo of my daughter when she was 3 years old, and decided that this picture was going to be my muse. I've taken the print pattern from her dress and incorporated it into the heading and page background. In addition to this, I've used stampin' dimensionals on some roses and leaves to give the images framing the photo a 3-D effect. Considering this is only the second scrapbook page using solely SU products I've ever completed, I'm very happy with the results. I hope you like it too.
* Wild Rose, Big Deal Alphabet & Enjoy Every Moment Stamp Sets.
