Madame Butterfly

I received my very first *Scrap That!* kit in the mail and couldn't wait to make my first layout. All of the enclosed elements are so beautiful and go together perfectly.

I used a photo of Anne taken at my mom's home. She was holding up her bag with all of her Easter Egg hunt "loot" . . . I just loved that big smile on her face!!!

I participated in their blog hop and was totally inspired by all of the wonderful creations that I saw there. I especially loved the way Ivana framed her photo with kit's ribbon, so I tried her idea on my layout. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!






I also had fun experimenting with my butterfly template and some mists that I had on hand in my own stash.

I used another photo of Anne(that I love!) for my second layout made with my first "Scrap That!" kit. It was a school photograph - it really supprised me how beautiful this school photo is - they have gotten quite pretty these days!



Thank you so much for your visit and comments!

  7. Awesome- and the title is perfect!! Anne is a beautiful young lady. Can you imagine what her life (or yours?) would be like had you not adopted her? Sometimes, I wonder about my own "China doll".
