My Creative Scrapbook - October Challenge

I subscribed to My Creative Scrapbook for their yummy Limted Edition and since then I've really enjoyed scrapbooking.  They currently have a challenge running which is to follow a sketch - so this is my take on it. 

This is my lovely lovely grand-daughter Daisy - she is the perfect model - will pose endlessly for me - a absolute darling!!! 

The patterned paper is by Magenta - Dancing Buterfly - a paper I bought from Running with Scissors ages ago but knew one day it would be a perfect background!!!!  I have carefully cut out the butterfly wings leaving the body attached to the paper, inked the wings with Walnut Stain and stickled them with Rangers Diamond.   Then I placed the whole page on a piece of purple Bazzil, lifted the butterfly wings up so that it created a 3d effect.  Daisy adores Tilda stamps (I have to stamp them up for her so she can take them home to colour in) so I have included a couple of them as embellishments (both on watercolour paper and coloured with distress inks).  I have used my fave Martha Stewart Doily punch on the other contrasting papers, added pearls, a heart doily, diamantes and some lovely pink ribbon.  Thoroughly enjoyed myself :O)

Thanks for looking

Scrapbook page - Daisy

This is my little grand-daughter Daisy 2 days before her 4th birthday - she loves the camera and certainly isnt shy in front of it lol. I think she is soooo cute in these photos. Well, not much left from my limited edition september kit - might just be able to squeeze just one more small layout tonight from it!!!  How frugal am I??  the butterflies were punched from the prima packaging!!!!

Scrapbook page - Just me

This is a photo from this summer taken one evening in Robin Hoods Bay (I sooo want to live there)!  I have used papers from my Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook (its all Prima yeayyy), distressed the edges with my nails lol, ripping and curling it and adding Vintage Photo to it all. Added a few lovely flowers and leaves and here it is...

Thanks for looking Polly xx
