another layout.....

I had sometime today while babies were napping to finish another layout. This one was fun to do with all the flowers and butterflies. Amy saw the picture and said I need to call the layout "Gammi's Day Out" so she gets credit for the title. This is another picture from the Water Park. Yes my hair is wet from chasing Drake through the sprinklers. I had as much fun as he did.

I used my threading water punch by Fiskars to create the scalloped border on the My Minds Eye paper. I then crumpled the paper slightly and sanded it with a sanding block from Lowes to distress it. I also sanded the picture and the DCWV white core brown cardstock to complete the distressed look.

This butterfly was created by stamping 3 identical butterflies with Brown ink and cutting them out. I used a Prima stamp for this. I folded them in half vertically. Then I glued just one wing back to back with the corresponding wing to make it dimensional. I used Stickles to give it some sparkle.

The scalloped circles and paper flowers were cut using KlickNKut Studio software and my KlickNKut Element. The other flowers are Prima

I used the "Swirls and Curls" background stamp by Stampabilities and brown ink to stamp the pattern on the large flower under the "D".

The small brown butterfly was cut on my KlickNKut Element and doodled with a Ranger Inkessentials Opaque White Pen. I added a thin layer of Stickles Frosted Lace over the butterfly to give it some sparkle. The felt flowers are by American Crafts. The flower centers are bridal pearls and rhinestones. Pin It
