Sweet Summer and a giveaway

  With all the crazyness that's been going on here, it's taken me a week to complete this layout using the gorgeous Ava line by GCD Studios sent to me by the talented Juliana Michaels.  I love all the flocking and foil in this line not to mention the beautiful colour pallet that lends itself perfectly to all my summer pics.
  I fussycut the butterflys and then hand stitched with the embroidery floss following the swirl pattern in the paper. A couple of pop dots will keep those wings up even when squished by my sheet protector.
 The journaling seemed to blend in with the background, so a little outlining added the pop it needed to stand out.  I can't wait to start playing with the rest of these papers that is if Isabelle will allow it as she is most demanding as of late.  Oh well....15 minutes here and there and eventually I manage to get it finished LOL!

Now on to that giveaway!!  Samantha is having a fantastic Imanginisce over on her Blog so please be sure to stop by and check it out as you could win all this:

What a great photo story I just love the pictures of the three kids and the way the papers relate to them. Hugs Mom
