Butterfly Kisses

 Hi, Patti here, this is a Design Team project for Scrapadabadoo!!!  I have used the Memories Captured collection by Fancy Pants and the 6 x 6 Burlap pad by DCWV. I just love this Fancy Pants collection because it's perfect for boys but can be just as much fun for a girly layout too.
 I girlyed (is that a word???) the page up, by diecutting two fancy flourishes by Cherry Lynn Designs and mirroring them which created a heart shape in the center of the page.  I then used some glossy accents to give it some dimension and it also gives it some strength since it's a pretty delicate diecut.
 I then diecut some flowers using the Tim Holtz tattered florals die out of the burlap to tie into the burlap banner under the picture, plus the burlap keeps the flowers a bit masculine.  I layered some punched flowers using the Retro flower punches by EK Success.  I also added some punched butterflies using 2 different Martha Stewart punches.  In order to be able to give them dimension, I double them up.  It gives them a bit more stability so they keep their shape.  I then finished them off by brushing them with some clear Wink of Stella....I LOVE that pen!!!
 I used some foam adhesives to pop up some of the elements for added dimension and interest.
The photo is of my daughter and my 2 year old grandson...he just learned how to give butterfly kisses and thought it was the greatest thing.

Thank you for stopping by and your comments.
