Peachy Keen Challenge 30 - shadow box

I started on the 12 x 12 layout for the Peachy Keen challenge 30 after I came back from my calligraphy class today.    Vincent brought home some Liz's baby photos from his office a couple of weeks ago and I decided to work on those.   As I looked at the photos, I wonder why have the years gone to?    I chose a photo of Liz when she was one year old and she is now 21 years old  (to be exact, 21 half)!

I decided to work around "many different faces of Liz" theme.   I have lots of fun stamping the different expressions and they were so cute and I burst into laughter time and again.

Unfortunately I do not have the shadow box and I only have a create and not the expression so I cannot cut a frame to resemble the shadow box, but fortunately we only have to create either a 12 x 12 or 8 x 8 layout and the shadowbox part is optional.   I still wish I have the expression to cut the frame though, and I must remember to put a cricut expression in my wish-list, which hopefully can be fulfilled when I get my craft room.

Peachy Keen challenge 30 - shadow box :

Here is my card :

Materials used :-

Pattern paper : DCWV Nana's nursery baby girl stack

Peachy keen stamps used :
- PK 34 - Oh baby - colored with copic markers
- various faces from PK 505 - too much fun faces
- various faces from PK 490 everyday character face assortment
- various faces from PK 159 simple simons

I cut 13 faces with cricut everyday paper dolls cart,  I also stamped different faces on the booties, the baby rattles and the milk bottle.   I apply Pebbles pearlescent chalks on the cheeks for the rosy pinkish look.

When Liz (who is back for summer holidays) asked why my display photos of her gets younger when she grows older?
