What's Your Favorite...

Here we are again... ready for a new challenge for WhatIsYourFaveThing. This challenge is... What's Your Favorite Fragrance??? I didn't think it was going to be that hard...but when I sat down to think about it... I couldn't decide. I have so many favorites that bring a smile to my face when I catch a whiff of them...

So I had to sit down and made a list... some were... fresh baked bread... the fresh clean air right after the rain... snow... vanilla... my husband's cologne... my perfume... the open pages of an old book... home made apple pie... the sweet innocence of a new born baby... my daughter after she's played in the mud... freesias... I could go on and on, there are so many more...

But as I looked at my list... the one which popped out... was the scent of a baby... my little baby Rainee... I miss holding Rainee with her fresh baby scent... so this is my page. My favorite scent in the world is my baby... who's not much of a baby anymore.

I wanted this lo to reflect the innocence of new born baby... so I put lots of butterflies (from the background paper) on it... for new life... and when it came to the photos... I tried everything... color... black and white... I even antiqued the photos... but nothing worked... so I took a chance and tried printing my photos on my background paper (since I had 2 of)... and it worked... it's exactly what I wanted... then I machine stiched the edges and put lots of vintage buttons on the page... it's exactly what I wanted.... Innocence.

We'd love to know what your favorite is... and see your card, layout or project... you have until the January 30th to upload it to WhatIsYourFaveThing... and there is a prize for the winner!!! Yeah! Thanks so much for stopping by... Have a lovely day!!!

Dear Michelle,

Thanks for sharing your favorites. I would imagine Rainee would be your favorite. Of the things you listed she would be mine too. Children grow up much too quickly. My granddaughter just turned 4 and I'm amazed at how quickly time has flown. Thanks again, your page not only shares your heart with us, but your artist's eye. Hugs,Cerise
