Ooh La La Layout and Winner

This 12x12 double layout was made using the Forever Young cartridge.  This layout was created to scrapbook some fun pictures of my daughter "posing."  I just love to memorialize the fun aspects of my kids personalities at certain points in their lives.  I don't think I could get her to pose for me now even though the pictures for this layout were just take about a year and half ago.
The silhouettes and tag were both cut from the Forever Young cartridge.  On the second page of the layout, I took the negative cut from the tag and added the "ooh la la" as the title and embellished it with my white gel pen.
Instead of cutting out the clothes for the models, I left them as silhouettes.  This also kept the layout from looking too busy.  For a decorative element, I made a loop with some ribbon and added it to each of my photo mats.  This will also be used to pull out the journaling tag.
I used an EK Success border punch to create the edge on the animal print border.  The same punch was used to create the border at the bottom of the tag.  The tag was embellished with some pearls, paper flowers, twine, ribbon and tulle.  
The silhouettes and "ooh la la" title were popped up on foam for added dimension. The silhouettes were also embellished with some pearls.
