lots of love....

oh, let me tell you!  I LOVE how this layout came together--I had it pictured in my mind for a while, just itching for the time to do it!  the veneer butterflies from Studio Calico are AMAZING!!  I would love to get more of those!
 I used them as a mask to get this affect, after the paper was dry I used my paper piercing tool and traced around the edge and then hand stitched:
Here's a little closeup of their misted beautifulness, I added more mist to get them to this color, after they dried I added some bling from my stash:
little closeup of the title, it's from the printable from this kit--FANTASTIC!  I even got to use my new Martha Stewart punch for the crown border:
supplies:
came from the Garden Party kit

This picture was another from my photo shoot last month with the borrowed 50mm lens, so glad I got one of my girl and ms. Ella.  She is such a funny dog, she is LOVING having the kids home.  she gets in the pool with them and swims like crazy, sort of nice because i don't have to stand out in the hot throwing the ball at the park! :)

this first week of summer with the kids home has me SO busy!  We've had some fun this week.  on Thursday we went to the farmer's market, bought strawberries and black berries then made low sugar freezer jam (next time I will use 3/4 C water for thicker jam)--it's SO yummy!

my goal today is to get this messy desk of mine cleaned off so I can see the bottom!  THAT would be a miracle!  thanks so much for popping in!
