Guest DT Christi Steinbeck

Happy New Year Miss Kate Fans !  Christi from Scrapping For Tranquility  starting the 2019 Guest Designers off this year.  What an honor to be joining Miss Kate's Guest Design Team for the 3rd year in a row!  I want to take just a second to say to her, Thank you soooo much for gifting me with this honor!  I have really enjoyed the last 3 years and hope to see 3 more! 

On to my project,

I am a little behind on my scrapbooking.  This is my 24 year old's newborn pictures when she was in the neonatal intensive care unit for being a preemie.  When I found these piecings of the gorgeous Sparkle Unicorn, Unicorn Head and Unicorn the title of "You Are Magical",  I knew Just what I wanted to do.

She was sooo tiny and had no fat on her she looked like a little Gremlin.  These photos, they had finally taken her off all the tubes and such and to me this was just "Magical".  Hence the title!  

The fantasy of the gorgeous unicorns and the beautiful stars was just how I was feeling at that moment.

Sparkle Unicorn
I used a white, lightly glittered cardstock for the the white and all the other cardstock was American Crafts textured cardstock.

The pattern cardstock I used is Doodlebug's Fairy Tale Line.

Unicorn Head

I used the Unicorn Head on the banners to give it extra dimension and to even the layout out.


To finish the layout  I put the Unicorn rearing up on the second page and called it finished.

I really was pleased how this newborn layout came out.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
