The whole layout started with the rosette from the girls paperie, which I got as a gift at a Fiskateers event from the amazingly generous LadyDoc. From there I pulled the dotted and striped patterned papers (My Mind's Eye) and the background paper (Bella Blvd). I put the pictures on cardstock (Bazzill) and used a Fiskars border punch on the edges. Vellum, letter stickers (Making Memories), a tiny bit of journaling, and I was almost done. I fussy cut the bats from another sheet of My Mind's Eye, then added Stickles to make them shine.
