A Sister is a Little Bit of Childhood that can never be Lost {3 Scrappy Boys - Glitz Design - Happy Traveller}

Hello Everyone!  Happy Monday!!
Can you believe it is the last day of the month?!

I cant!  I didn't realise it until today - I thought I
had a whole other day to finish off my work for
April but dear daughter pointed out
that April does indeed have only 30 days - uuuugh!!

I just never have enough time to complete the challenges
that I would like!  BUT - not to worry - I can't do everything
and I have achieved something really awesome this weekend,
which I will share with you on Thursday so come back & see!

Here is the 5th layout I created for 3 Scrappy Boys, using the
papers from Glitz Design, Happy Traveller (beautiful papers
and so versatile as my layout has nothing to do with travelling!)

I used the Bella! Bling from the kit, but I cut it up
 into strips to use for the butterflies' bodies.

I added a doily from my stash & a doily-type diecut
 from a Spellbinders die, that I sanded a bit.

Butterflies were punched using my Martha Stewart Crafts 
double butterfly  punch.  I chose a long title to make the
most of those awesome Prima alphas (supplied in the kit).

To do this it's best to chose a photo with some white space
for the title to fit.  I love this photo of my 2 girls :)
