.... the little stuff

Hello crafty friends, seems like I can squeeze in a post on a layout I did recently, it actually took two days:-) not that it was a grand masterpiece.. it's just that crafting time is limited nowadays..
It started with me finding this pic of me taken last year. And I love the view behind me. Plus I love the orange of the scarf!! Lame:-) So I thought its time for another layout..

I picked this Hambly tree rubon to match the orange in the photograph.. I applied it on Kraft paper and coloured in the wood grain in brown Copics so that it doesn't blend in with the background too much.

I added a Hero arts butterfly and stamped in the grid background for some added detail, however the grid is not too visible, if you squint hard and look under the butterfly you might just lightly see it:-) Need to get a better white ink for stamping!

The stamps I used for the title are by Hero arts and Ali Edwards for Technique Tuesday.. The blue butterfly is also by Hero arts.. I placed the little fella over some cork I punched out with a Martha Stewart punch.
And the pretty little frame is by American Crafts! Dont you just love it? I cant wait to add them on more layouts..

I also pulled out my October Afternoon Fly a Kite line pattern paper and used it with some Hambly overlays.. I wanted the overlay to mimic my stamped grid background..

Lastly I added this cute button I found in Singapore and this very pretty rub on by Lily Bee and finished it off:-)
Thank you so much for dropping by,
