Just a little shorter than the last...

I just loved the nesting dolls theme challenge the DT had at GCD Studios this month! When my brother was in high school he was invited to wrestle in several countries including Russia. When he was there he traded a pair of jeans for 2 sets of dolls. I still have them...my kids loved playing with them when they were babies. I just love how they look all lined up, everyone just a little shorter than the last.

I decided to use that inspiration for my layout design. Each photo is placed just a little lower than the last. I think it really makes for an eye pleasing design.



For this layout I used the Artsy Urban Collection. I think its homey feel suits the design and nesting doll theme perfectly.



Here are a few details...you can not help but love all the amazing embellishments that come with this line.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
