Wrapped Around Your Finger

I've had these pictures of my granddaughter just waiting to be used on a layout for some time.  I had thought about doing something related to her curls.  I especially love the picture that shows that one big curl.  This was two years ago, and her hair has now lost much of its curl (boo hoo).  These pictures were taken early one morning while we were at the lake, and she hadn't even brushed her hair.  How cool is that!  (She had, however, been eating a red sucker -- hence the sucker mouth.)

The title for this layout came from the current challenge over at Frosted Designs.  You are to use lyrics from a song somewhere on a layout.  I decided on Tim McGraw's song, "My Little Girl."  The two lines of the song I thought of were these:  "I remember I thought you looked like an angel wrapped in pink so soft and warm.  You've had me wrapped around your finger since the day you were born."  My husband and daughter danced to this song at her wedidng last year, so it has special meaning to me anyway.

I used Allison Davis' July sketch for this layout.  I love her two page sketches!  She has an awesome way of taking one sketch and making it into several different designs. 

Supplies:

"Wrapped" and "Finger" are the Marketing Script font cut using Sure Cuts A Lot.  (Sorry that you have a hard time seeing the title -- I loved the patterned paper I used, but it was hard to get words to show up, and I couldn't get a shadow to work in SCAL.)
"around" and "your" are the Olivia Cuttlebug font.
"You've Had Me" and "Since the Day You Were Born" are computer generated and then punched.
The large background circle, small circles and scalloped circles are either punches, or cut from the George Cricut cartridge.
Scalloped border is a Martha Stewart border punch.
Ladybugs are K & Co.

I'm sure you'll have to click on the picture if you want to get a better look.  I had a tough time getting a good picture of this.  It was either too bright, or too dark, and then I ended up with shadows on the photos. 

Here's the sketch:
