Trendy Twine Guest Designer: Mind Of A Toddler Layout

I am honored to be a Guest Designer today at Trendy Twine.
I used the Trendy Twine Valentwine Mini Pack and I love it!! 
Is so gorgeous and girly and you know I love girly!!
For this layout I was inspired 
by a photo that is incredibly accurate. 

Isn't this layout super twine-y??

 I wanted to make a kinda graphic background 
and I used this paper from My Mind's Eye.
Doing the graphic background thingy wasn't as easy 
as I hoped but it turned out pretty cool!!

I did my own version of the brain in the picture
to make it more relevant to my daughter. 

For the title I used the Cherry Limeade Cartridge and the 
hot air balloon is a stamp from Inspired By Stamping

I clustered embellishments on this tag from K & Company.

I stitched the line in the center of both pages. 

This silhouette is from Gypsy Wanderings but I flipped it with my Gypsy and I made a smaller cut to make the brain. 
I love the twine bow on the girl's hair. 

I used a super tiny type for the regions of the brain. 
I maybe could've gone a bit bigger but it would look too cluttered. The blings are the "Glands".
It kinda looks like a science project.
(Click photo for larger image)

I think the title needed a little bit of magic and
 I added some swirls of twine. 

The  rainbow is a sticker from Me and My Big Ideas. 
The ladybug and the brad on the handmade flower 
are from My Mind's Eye.

I hope you enjoyed this project as I much as I enjoyed exploring the mind of my daughter.
Take Care!!
