Birds Of A Feather Scrap Together.....SOUS.....

TGIF....and I mean that with all my heart...so happy to see the end of the week. Today is reveal day at SOUS and we have another Beggahuna sketch that is just fabulous.....I adore her work. This page is dedicated to my scrappy girls....Leah, Sandi and Nanne. Since they are a very important part of my life I realized I had to do a scrappy tribute to them. This way my family will know how much I enjoyed being a part of this fabulous DT and blog.
My flowers are the cut from Sweethearts cart...I cut both paper and tulle and alternated the layers, they are fastened with a brad in the center. I would suggest a new mat when cutting the tulle. I used a 2 1/2, 2 1/4 and 2 inch cut of the flower. I used the large cut in paper for the base and a med cut in paper in the middle...the tulle is cut 2 times in all sizes and make up all the other layers. My sweet little birds are from Lyrical Letters and sport a flourish tail from Home Decor. I added a pearl eye, some stickles and some pearl paint to accent them. You can see a peek of some more of the butterflies from Stamping cut from the page of an old book, inked and some adhesive pearls for the bodies.

I know how much refuge I find in my paper art and we are all artists...it truly does wash away the dust from the day. I love my little K&Co frames! The 3 'crystal' butterflies are actually from a floral pick by Modern Romance...I got them on clearance at M's in the bridal aisle.
My World has a fence I love to use on my layouts, it is embossed and distressed with ink. The flowers, leaves and branches are all from my Home Decor cart cut from a reversible paper by Paperbilities. I love the earwig font to add computer generated pieces of my title printed on off white paper in brown ink. I added some pearl paints to the edges of my flowers.

My circle and font is from Lyrical Letters, the scallop mat from Stamping and the mat behind the pix from A Child's Year. I placed my pix on the mat, tore the mat in half, punched holes and then laced the ribbon through...the ribbon continues into the branches on each side of the layout. I also added some pearl paint to the scallops on the mat.
