Say Cheese

I love this photo taken during our visit to the Maru Wildlife Park in Melbourne, Australia, last December - how the cute little kangaroo also seems to be looking at the camera! So, of course, I had to scrap it.

I used Graphic 45's Botanical Tea collection papers for this layout, embellished with flowers and such from Prima Marketing, as well as hand-cut flowers and butterflies from the collection itself.

Here are some close-ups.

It's time for yet another reveal at My Creative Sketches, and above is my DT layout, inspired by this beautiful sketch by Liz Chidester.

Using papers from Prima's Stationer's Desk collection, I added some twine, corrugated cardboards, and chipboard butterflies from The Dusty Attic, to give the layout some added textures.

I inked the twine and corrugated cardboards, and then applied the lightest spritzes of glimmer mists to the cardboards and butterflies to give them just a little shimmer. I also added a touch of stickles to the bodies of the butterflies.

Some pop-up foam dots to the photo, tickets and butterflies also add dimension to the layout.

Now, hop on over to the MCS blog to see the gorgeous prize up for grabs, as well as for more inspiration from the talented DTs. Looking forward to seeing all of your lovely entries!
