Here's another layout featuring a song for inspiration. Carole uses the song, "Clandestino" by Manu Chao. She feels it goes perfectly with the photo of her child.

Paper: Making Memories
Die-cuts: Making Memories
Flowers: Making Memories
Buttons: Making Memories
Ribbons: Making Memories
Velvet Flowers Brads: Making Memories
Felt Stickers Alphabet: American Crafts

This layout is an assortment of the Making Memories 5th Avenue papers, die cuts, flowers, and buttons. The embellishments are placed diagonally on the bottom half of the layout to help bring movement to the page. To do the doodle with the ribbon, draw your doodle with a pencil. Then use your sewing machine (or you can hand stitch) to sew over the ribbon following the lines you drew before. Since the title is very long (and these particular letter stickers matched so well), I placed it vertically and then the last syllable of the word is horizontal around the papers.
