Say 'Cheese' Challenge

I am playing in a few more challenges
and came across one called
'Say Cheese'

I had a few of these Photographer Girl digitals I had printed
left over from my Design Team days at
The Shabby Tea Room
(gosh how I miss that challenge)!!

I just love this photographer girl
and used an image last year for my daughter's birthday (Oct.)
and she will get this card this  year.

The little round camera disc is from the same Etsy shop
and says 'Beautiful Life Smile' on it.

The 'say cheese'  sentiment was cut on my Cricut Explore.
(So proud of myself I am 'finally' finding time to use that more)!

The papers are Authentique called Classique Essentials I
 recently purchased from Hobbylobby.
Funny thing about them is that when I got them home
I found I had some of them,
evidently this pad is full of various ones that were previously
in other paper pads, but grouped together as favorites.

The entire purpose of creating this card now
(kind of early for my daughter's birthday)
is to enter in Dragonfly Journeys challenge
which is 
'Say cheese'!

Entering in the following FUN challenges:
Dragonfly Journeys .... Say Cheese (x)
Inspiration Destination .... ATG (w)
Simon Says Wed.Challenge .... ATG (x)

You've outdone yourself, Diane! Every bit of this card is fabulous and perfect. It's not only perfect for your photographer daughter's birthday, but it's just so beautifully crafted. Love the image, the papers, the "say cheese" in pink and black. Gosh, I thought about you all afternoon yesterday when I was sorting through and weeding out my ribbons. I can't believe how much I took out and how much I still have left. Way out of control!

Hi Diane! This is such a pretty little lady and I love the layout and papers you used too. That circle sentiment along with the "Say Cheese" is the perfect touch. Always a treat to have you join my challenges. Thanks so much :)
