SIL challenge - LO no.2

Layout no.2 for SIL's April Challenge. For some strange reason, I am more productive with the 5 days deadline. Since I'm still a baby scrapper, it takes me around 4-5 hours to complete one..... but it does feel like my creative mojo is out and I'm in scrapbook heaven!

To enter SIL challenge, pls go to Scrap-it-lah.

One of the challenge was to incorporated butterflies on our LO. As my martha stewart punches are still in the wish list, I have zero butterfly punches *tsk, tsk , tsk*.
So to work around that, I stamp some prima butterflies on acetate and cut it out.

Purple flowers from Prima Ornaments, won previously from SIL. Added in some plum berries from local craft stores and some cut outs from Webster Pages.

Title for my layout : "The long awaited TEA"
Small doilies spritz with mud brown acrylic paint.
I love how this turned out (=

Tiny butterflies, stamped and cut out. I lost a few in the process of cutting.....


.....and more Blings!!! One of the elements needed on our LOs.
I could not get hold of any Prima blings as the challenge only last for 5 days, so instead I picked up some handphone blings. Well it fitted in perfectly. *Smiles*

TADA!! The finished layout.

I love the color of this paper and the small birds.
To make the white birdies stand out, i stamped a journaling stamp around it.

{Aside to the embellishments and technique used on this LO, my favorite part is the journaling. Confessions of the little things I missed most.}

Two LOs down, 4 more to go.....
I'll be waiting..
