My first card is for five challenges, yes five and I am feeling pretty happy about that! The first one is for the Twisted Sisters Challenge and Sistahs...I am on time!! Wahoo!! We have been challenges to use buttons and bows...yep..done that, The second one is Teapot Tuesday where one of the Twisted Sisters, Maureen, is hosting and we are to be inspired by a teapot she has chosen and a Pat Cash song - well I couldn't choose one song so used the music image instead
EDIT: I am also linking this card to the Die Cuts R Us Challenge where there is no challenge this week, but instead they are celebrating Thanksgiving and it is all about being thankful - all of the girls have shared each day this week - today's post over there was particularly meaningful to me - thank you Lori!!
This Layout is made with the Layers of Color New Release set Flutterscent. I could not resist using it on this layout of my DD1....I love these photos of her - they were very easy to scrapbook. The top photo just captures her beautifully....she is full of life and brings laughter everywhere she goes.
I have kept it simple, the gorgeous DP from Stampin' Up fitted the photos perfectly that I really only wanted to add a couple of touches to personalise it! I added the chipboard 'b' covering it with the same DP and sponging around the edges with Close to Cocoa. I had positioned it carefully, drawing around where it was going to be, on a second sheet of the same DP - then when covered and sponged placed it back in the same place so it blended in and gave the inpression of being 3D.
The second photo is taken in an attempt to have her holding the Australian War Memorial in her hand - it was fun, we didn't quite get there but had fun trying! I stamped a few of the butterflies in Close to Cocoa and then stamped some on white CS, cut them out and layered them onto the stamped butterfly.
Hence the name 'Butterfly Kisses' - these images from Layers of Color work so well with Scrapbooking, I love to include stamping on every page - they make it easy!
Be sure to have a look at the new release stamps which you can see at Layers of Color and also be inspired by the cards the Design Team have created using all nine sets - be prepared to 'fall in love' with these sets and the other sets you can see there!!
Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate you taking the time and your encouraging comments - you are so lovely!! I look forward to seeing you soon! God bless you!
