Three layouts for challenges

These first two layouts (one for me one for daughter) are done with the same picture of my oldest and youngest granddaughters.  They are 17 months apart.  I love the expression on the oldest face with her hands on her head.  
The first layout is for the Lasting Memories challenge - frames and flowers.  The frame is the first one I cut from the Fancy Frames cart.  I added flowers and pearls to deck it out.  Paper is a new DCWV stack I got at M's called French Country I think.  
This layout is for the Stuck on You Sketches challenge- use hearts.  I finally did this cut from Paper Lace which I had been wanting to do.  Then I punched out top and bottom border with a wide MS heart punch.  I then took punched out hearts and added them to Paper Lace hearts and then added pearls.   
This layout is for the Blog Quick Quotes- sketch challenge.  I used my Blog quick quotes paper, title and quotes.  I  added some felt and paper flowers from my stash. All the pieces are inked with Tim Holtz ink.  Love the colors and the bird cages.
