JJ **Swirlydoos**

Wow Saturday already, where has this year gone so far? Eeeek, before you know it will be winter again lol. I made 2 layouts yesterday after work and this is one of them. I used goodies from my June Swirlydoos kit and the sketch from Stuck on U Sketches. I think I kinda slaughtered the sketch but this is my take on it. I am cant seem to do multiple photos so I usually just embellish more. The photo is my grandson Johanathan (JJ) on his first time on the slide this month..awwww…getting to be a big boy J I added a few butterflies that are just cut out from a file at Swirlydoos.


Here you can see the fussy cutting that I did on the plaid paper and the Dusty Attic swirl that I added. I also did lots of machine stitching on this layout. After that farce last week with the nightmare faux stitching I will stick to my machine now, hehe.

Here are a couple close-ups of the top title section. The wings are from Dusty Attic also. I soaked them in water, layered the chipboard then added some white paint and glimmer mist to it. I love the feathered look of them, very cool. The blue flowers I made myself. Maggi has a great easy tut on her blog that you can use…I changed it up some but basically they are the same.


Here is a close up of the bottom cluster and a good view of one of the butterflies. Just print them cut them out and add some slickles and gems to them.


Well that is it for today.  I hope tomorrow to post my Getting on the Glitz layout. I hope that you have a fantastic weekend.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
