Time to share that last page I've made with my fantastic American Crafts Dear Lizzy papers I got from Handmade by Suzanne. (Oh and while I'm talking about it, Suzanne has currently reduced nearly 600 products in the shop by 30% - including all the Dear Lizzy line. Gotta make way for the next CHA)
I made this layout inspired by this gorgeous one by Jolene Pienaar.
I layered up all those flowers and butterflies and rub-ons - love a good embellishment cluster! I cut up all the leaves and bent them up for some more dimension. Then I thought it needed just a touch more fiddling, so added some glitter to the centre of the flowers and outlined the petals with my pink Sakura Souffle pen.
Martha Stewart heart punch .... I love you.
Initially I did my whole layout on the plain AC 'blush' cardstock. Then I decided I really wanted to add more details (you are aware of my aversion of white-space!!) by misting those sun-rays in the background. Of course, that would have been really easy if I had thought of that before I finished sticking everything down.... but not so. Yet I was so determined that I cut out some scrap paper to fit over all the bits that I didn't want misted (including tiny little scraps to cover all the butterflies - yep I really had 'finished') before I laid down my stencil and went to town with my Glimmermist.
I really love these photos of Munchy meeting Moodles for the first time. We captured these moments where she wanted to check out every single bit of her - making sure she was ok I guess?!! Good thing she passed the inspection and we got to keep her :-)
