Adore, Precious Memories

Hi Lovelies,

Today I would like to share a LO I made early this morning (think 5.30am) well that's when it got started ;).  I used one of the many sketches I've pinned as my starting point.

Then of course I deviated from it & started doing my own thing 'coz I'm like that.  Once again I'm in full on creating mode for Daisy Chain.  I wasn't going to do a scrap book page since I only had the 61/2 inch pad of Botanical Odyssey.  But then I decided to challenge myself & this is what I came up with.  It all started with the five little words on the side of the photo (Delight, friend, sweet, laughter & happy), I thought they suited this photo of my two girls & wanted to do something with them on the side of the photo.  Plus I wanted to show case these pp.  Hence the 2" squares.  Then I had one square that cut off the butterfly so I then decided to add the "off cut" to the next square, as well as another piece of pp to keep in with the square theme.  Then I had to add a butterfly over the top of course.  All the stamps I used on this page are Kaisercraft.  The bird, butterflies & words are all Botanical Odyssey & the flower flourish is from Twig & Berry.  I've sprayed the bottom corner with ink & water (with a mini mister).  I then stamped over this & added cut out flowers, butterflies & birds.

I'm going to enter this into Red Carpet Studio's challenge this week.  Their theme is Anything goes - Say Anything.  I think the words down the side of the photo suit this challenge (here's hoping).

Have a great day & happy creating
