mood board:
I took the colours, which I ADORE [even the purple, these days!!!] & the idea of the stack/groupings:
 Some butterflies, grid die cut & book paper from my scrappy mate, Lizzie C...
I had a birthday a couple of weeks ago, you see;)
 The drips of blue are Glimmer Glaze; the deep orange, Adirondack ink spray.
They worked with this lovely MME ppr gifted to me by Ronda Palazzari.
The flair - arrows are Funky Flair Studio; the ampersand is from Badges Folies:
 Thanks for the tag, too, Lizzie!!!
 This girl's life really has changed dramatically & as you can read, in a fabulous way!
 ADORE those metal Maggie Holmes triangles.....& the whole page:
I simply could NOT choose which photos I liked best. So THANK YOU Picassa for your Collage program.
I've still got one or two to scrap that I figured would make good single photo LOs, too:)

The card sketch:

 This card came about cos of the generosity of my scrappy mates, Sanna & Sandra!
I LOVE those resin clear sticky dots that you can sorta create your own 'flair'.
Sandra sent me a packet & I could not WAIT to use them!
The little heart stamp, above, was HAND CARVED by Sanna.
I'm in  serious LOOOOOOOOOVE!!!!
I fussy cut the butterfly out of some PL cards she gave me!
I RARELY [never] fuss up the card insides....
...but Margy M does; thus inspired here!
Ant those butterflies were so cute...
more fussy cutting;)
Sanna also sent me the round lacy die cut with the string attached!
I added some script stamping and edge sponging to the papers
...thanks so much for putting up with me dribbling on!
Blessings, & Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  7. The layout is gorgeous Lizzy - the backlit photos shine in the ?dusk, redolent of lazy English days when the sun is still up at 9.30 p.m. Love those triangle thingies.
