Welcome to Scrap A Little Design Team 1st ever Blog Hop.

This is affiliated to the April Challenge.

My song title for the challenge was "Daddies Little Girl".

My choice was because my boys spend precious time

with the little girls in their lives....these are so precious.

Detail shows the stickled flowers, pearls, touch of lace in the cluster.
